Former Redskins running back and assistant coach Earnest Byner is joining the staff of new Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano, according to PewterReport.com.

Byner will be the running backs coach, a post he held for the past two seasons with the Jaguars.

Almost as soon as the report was passed along by ProFootballTalk, the comments predictably and not particularly cleverly leaned toward variations on how the Bucs would need to get someone else to coach backs near the goal line, a reference to Byner's infamous fumble in the 1987 AFC Championship Game that cost the Browns a trip to the Super Bowl.

Oh, the wonders of the Internet.
