LB Coach Mike Caldwell on How Devin White is Commanding the Huddle
On Monday, assistant coaches were made available to speak to the media. Here is what LB Coach Mike Caldwell had to say about rookie LB Devin White commanding the huddle via Buccaneers.com:
“I think he’s doing a good job. Coming in as a rookie, being a Mike linebacker, [there are] a lot of responsibilities on his shoulders and he’s taken to the job, he’s studying and he’s making all the calls.”
Devin White has come in and become the QB of the Defense. This is a job that was previously held by now 49ers LB Kwon Alexander. For coach Caldwell to praise White as the mouthpiece of the Defense is very encouraging. White will be a pivotal piece of the Defense and getting them the plays to succeed this season. It’ll be interesting to see how this transition goes as the Buccaneers aren’t showing their hand much in preseason and won’t until Week 1 of the regular season.
