Ex-Saline and Michigan QB Nick Sheridan, father Bill Sheridan reunite in Tampa
Nine years after leaving the University of Michigan coaching staff and his son Nick at Saline High School, Bill Sheridan is once again in the same city as his second son.
Bill Sheridan is entering his second season as the defensive coordinator of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. At the University of South Florida in Tampa, Nick is entering his first season as the Bulls’ quarterbacks coach.
After a four-year career as Michigan’s quarterback and a year coaching quarterbacks at Saline, Sheridan spent two years at Western Kentucky, the first as a graduate assistant and the second as the quarterbacks coach. When WKU head coach Willie Taggart moved on to South Florida in Tampa during the offseason, Sheridan came along.
The two talked to WTSP, a television station in Tampa, about coaching in the same town.
"I just think we both feel very fortunate,” Nick told WTSP. “It's unique that we're in the same town, but aside from that, just to be able to work at the places we do- for my dad to be a coordinator in the NFL and for me to coach quarterbacks at the Division-I level at a place that has such great tradition and great expectations like South Florida has," said Nick. "I think we both just feel very fortunate and the fact that it's together makes it that much better."
