Darrelle Revis "looking forward" to working with Lovie Smith

Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis says that he is looking forward to working with new head coach Lovie Smith.

Darrelle Revis has said that he is looking forward to working with new Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith.

The former Chicago Bears head coach was placed in charge of the NFC South side following Greg Schiano's dismissal at the end of the 2013 regular season.

The cornerback told NFL Network: "I'm looking forward to meeting him and the new coaching staff. I played cover two last year. I don't have a problem playing cover two. There are some things we can do, we can move some things around and scheme things differently and we'll be fine. We'll talk about it.

"I'm not going to make a prediction on [a 2014 turnaround], but at the same time Kansas City, they were terrible for a couple years. They turned it around when Andy [Reid] came in there. He's a great coach.

"They had the same players, and he came with a different scheme and knew his personnel. And Lovie can do the exact same thing. Lovie had success in the past. With this roster, hopefully we have success again under him."

The Buccaneers gave up their first-round pick in last year's Draft to acquire Revis from the New York Jets.
