The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to an extension with defensive coordinator Mike Smith. He just completed his first-year with the team.

According to NFL.com, the Bucs had the 15th best defense, as they gave up 23.1 points per game. They allowed 367.9 yards per game.

Smith also withdrew his name from consideration for the San Diego Chargers head coaching job. They are looking to hire a defensive-minded head coach.

He was also a candidate to be the Jacksonville Jaguars head coach. However, general manager Dave Caldwell decided to promote Doug Marrone as head coach.

Marrone was previously their offensive line coach.

Smith — prior to coming to Tampa Bay — was the Atlanta Falcons head coach from 2008 through 2014. He was 66-46 with the team, but 1-4 in the playoffs.

He also was the Jaguars defensive coordinator from 2003 to 2007. He worked for the Baltimore Ravens — first as a defensive assistant and defensive line coach from 1999 to 2001.

Smith was also the Ravens linebackers coach in 2002.

He worked in college football from 1982 through 1998. He worked for the San Diego State Aztecs, Morehead State Eagles and the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles during that time.
