The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to a contract extension with defensive coordinator Mike Smith, according to a source.

Smith flirted with some of the head coaching vacancies this month.

After allowing 26.1 points per game (26th in the league) in 2015, that number dropped to 23.1, the 15th-best mark. During the Tampa Bay's five-game winning streak in the middle of the season, the defense allowed a minuscule 64 points.
