Doubt laugh, this makes sense. While Byron Leftwich may not have been the quarterback the Jacksonville Jaguars envisioned he would be when they drafted him in 2003, he has steadily moved up the coaching ranks and is regarded as a top offensive coordinator.

The odd thing about all this is he is working with Tom Brady in Tampa Bay with Blaine Gabbert as his primary backup. Yikes!
The fans would need time to adapt to the move, but should the Buccaneers make the playoffs this season and Brady does Brady things, Leftwich will become the hot name out there. I suspect plenty of teams will take a long look at him.
Before his travels to Tampa, Leftwich was successful in Arizona. One thing to consider is he also may become the eventual replacement for Bruce Arians in Tampa should the head coach decide to call it quits once again in another couple of years.
