The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have hired Lori Locust and Maral Javadifar as assistant coaches.

The hires make the Buccaneers the first NFL team with two female coaches on staff.

Locust is an assistant defensive line coach, while Javadifar is an assistant strength and conditioning coach.

"I know how hard it can be to get that first opportunity to coach at the highest level of professional football," Bruce Arians said in a statement. "Sometimes, all you need is the right organization to offer up the opportunity. The Glazer family and our general manager, Jason Licht, were extremely supportive of my decision, and I know Maral and Lori will be great additions to my coaching staff."
