Schiano opens first Bucs minicamp; NFL to release schedule
TAMPA - This is shaping up to be a pretty big day for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and new head coach Greg Schiano. Not only is today the beginning of the team's first minicamp under Schiano, it is also the day the NFL schedule is due to come out. Schiano, who replaced Raheem Morris in January, will begin his first three-day minicamp with a workout at One Buc Place at 2:30 p.m. today. The schedule he will have to deal with during his rookie year as head coach will be unveiled during a three-hour special on the NFL Network starting at 7 p.m., as well as on NFL.com.The Bucs began their offseason workout program under Schiano on April 2, and today marks the beginning of the first of three minicamps. The team will be on the field today, Wednesday and Thursday, so players will get their first real taste of Schiano's practice style. One thing to keep in mind is that this is a voluntary workout. Players are strongly urged, but not required, to attend. With this being Schiano's first on-field drill instruction, however, most players are expected to participate.
