Randy Melvin, new D-line coach

To fill the spot vacated when defensive line coach Andre Patterson went to work on a Minnesota Vikings staff that includes the other Turner, Norv, FIU head football coach Ron Turner hired Randy Melvin.

Melvin coached with Turner on Tampa Bay's staff in 2011 and remained there in 2012. Over his career, he's bounced between college and the NFL -- Eastern Illinois, Wyoming, Purdue, New England Patriots (first Super Bowl season), Rutgers (twice), Cleveland, Temple (with Al Golden). He even did a CFL season with the BC Lions (Grey Cup) before heading back to the NFL with Tampa Bay.
