TAMPA – The Bucs success this season has cost them the services of their long-standing special teams coordinator and associate head coach, Richard Bisaccia.

Bisaccia, who spent nine years engineering the Bucs special teams units, is leaving the Bucs for a similar position with the San Diego Chargers, Bucs spokesman Jonathan Grella said.

The Bucs quickly filled the vacancy by making five-year Bucs coaching veteran Dwayne Stukes their new special teams coach. Stukes spent the 2010 season serving the Bucs as an assistant defensive backs coach.

“This organization and our players are excited to have Coach Stukes in this role,’’ Bucs general manager Mark Dominik aid in a statement. “For the past five years, Coach Stukes has aided in the preparation and development of our young players. He’s ready for this opportunity.’’
