Two new coaches will make their NFL debuts tomorrow night at Sun Life Stadium. The Buccaneers and Dolphins will begin their preseason with a clash in Miami that will feature the first look at a host of new players, but also Joe Philbin and Greg Schiano. Ryan Tannehill will get his first NFL action in what will surely be a limited opportunity. The team that is the focus of this summer's Hard Knocks will also get to start to see if Chad Johnson has anything left in the tank.

The Bucs, on the other hand, will begin a reclamation season and try to get quarterback Josh Freeman in rhythm with some game-action reps. Kick off is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. Because it's an intra-state game, it will be broadcast across a variety of channels in the Sunshine State. Chris Myers and John Lynch will call the game on the Bucs side for the following stations:

WTSP 10 (CBS; Tampa)
WTLH 49 (FOX; Tallahassee)
WRDQ 27 (Orlando)
WFTX 4 (FOX; Fort Myers)

Dick Stockton and Brian Griese will call the game on the Dolphins side for these Florida channels:

WZVN 7 (ABC; Fort Myers)
WFOR 4 (CBS; Miami)
WTVX 34 (CW; West Palm Beach)
