Monte Kiffin is and will be one of the most beloved coaches in Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ history after spending 13 seasons with the franchise – the longest-tenured coach in franchise history.
Kiffin is most known for creating one of the most powerful and now most used defenses in the NFL: The Tampa 2.
Kiffin and his Tampa 2 defense are widely credited for Tampa Bay’s Super Bowl run in 2002 and in his first season with the Bucs, he took a defense that was ranked 27th in the league to 11th the following season.

During his time in Tampa Bay, Kiffin’s defenses ranked inside the top-10 in all but 2 seasons in yards allowed and only once in points allowed. His defenses were named the best defense in the NFL twice, including during the team’s Super Bowl run in 2002.
