Offensive Line

Biography

Bob Bostad is in his fourth season of NFL coaching and his second in Tennessee, after spending two seasons (2012-13) with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers coaching the offensive line. He entered the NFL coaching ranks after 22 years of college coaching experience. His line philosophies and development of many collegiate-turned-professional players highlight his coaching resume.

Last year he helped guide rookie first-round pick Taylor Lewan, who would earn Pro Football Writers of America All-Rookie honors, despite only starting six games due to injury. Bostad’s group dealt with a myriad of injuries, including four front-line starters (Roos, Lewan, Schwenke and Oher) missing significant portions of the season and resulting in five different starting combinations throughout the season.

In his first season (2012) with Tampa Bay, his offensive line only gave up 26 sacks, tying for third fewest in the league, and paved the way for rookie RB Doug Martin, who rushed for 1,454 yards and 11 touchdowns, ranking fifth in both categories. Martin earned Pro Bowl recognition for his season.

Prior to joining the Buccaneers, Bostad served for six years as run game coordinator at Wisconsin. In his first two seasons (2006-07) he coached tight ends, during which time he directed All-American TE Travis Beckum, who set school records for a tight end for receptions (75) and yards (982). His stable of tight ends also included current NFL players, Garrett Graham (Houston) and Lance Kendricks (St. Louis). His final four years were spent managing the offensive line, at which time he tutored four first-team All-Americans – C Peter Konz and G Kevin Zeitler in 2011 and T Gabe Carimi and G John Moffit in 2010. Three of his players would develop into NFL first-round picks – Carimi, Zeitler and Travis Frederick. He directed one of the nation’s best rushing attacks year after year, allowing the Badgers to total 3,000 rushing yards on their way to two Big Ten titles in his final two seasons and would lead the conference in rushing yards for five consecutive seasons. Running back Monte Ball rushed for 1,923 yards and set an NCAA record with 39 touchdowns during the 2011 campaign.

Bostad spent six seasons (1999-2005) with New Mexico as the offensive line coach before he joined the Badgers staff. During this time, he designed blocking schemes for the 2005 conference offensive player of the year, RB DonTrell Moore. For Moore’s career, he posted four consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons. With the Lobos, Bostad developed four linemen who would be drafted in the NFL – Ryan Cook, Claude Terrell, Robert Turner and Terrance Pennington. He also recruited current Titans OL Byron Bell to New Mexico. Prior to this, he served as offensive line coach at San Jose State for two seasons (1997-98) and was elevated to co-offensive coordinator in his final season. Bostad’s other experience includes stops at Cal State Northridge (1995-96) and the University of Minnesota (1992-94).

Bostad was a four-year starting linebacker for the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point, where he launched his coaching career in 1990 as the offensive line coach.

A native of Wisconsin, Bostad and his wife, Cara, have four children – Rachel, Bryn, Annika and John.
