Tampa, FL (Sports Network) - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers named Mike Sullivan as their new offensive coordinator on Friday.

Sullivan has spent the last eight seasons as a member of the New York Giants coaching staff and the past two years as the quarterbacks coach.

Under Sullivan, Giants quarterback Eli Manning has had his two most successful seasons of his career, including setting single-season franchise records of 359 completions and 4,933 yards this past season en route to earning MVP honors at Super Bowl XLVI.

"We are very fortunate to add someone like Mike Sullivan to lead our offensive coaching staff," said Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano. "He is a man of character and a complete football coach, who fits with the kind of football team we are building here. His work with the Giants over the past eight seasons speaks for itself. Mike was an integral part of that team winning two Super Bowls in the last five years and we look forward to him bringing that experience and expertise to our club."

Prior to coaching the quarterbacks, Sullivan spent six seasons as the Giants wide receivers coach. His other NFL coaching experience includes being a defensive quality control coach and an offensive assistant with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
