Another former Clemson product is making waves in the NFL.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced on Tuesday that former Clemson defensive tackle Brenton Buckner has been hired as their new defensive line coach.

Buckner coached the defensive line of the Arizona Cardinals the last five years as they were a solid group with 203 total sacks during that span. His other coaching experience included three years as a coaching intern with the Pittsburgh Steelers and was the head coach of the Northside Christian Academy in Charlotte, N.C. for a season.

He was a second-round draft pick out of Clemson in the 1994 NFL Draft and played 12 seasons in the NFL with Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, San Francisco, and Carolina. He accumulated 324 tackles, 31 sacks, two interceptions, five forced fumbles, and seven fumble recoveries during his standout pro career.

During his time at Clemson, he was a first-team All-ACC selection his senior year and is fourth all-time in school history with 46 tackles for loss.
