The Buccaneers have't had much to celebrate lately, but if Schottenheimer comes to town, winning might become a trend. TAMPA — How do you get a head coaching job in Tampa? Well either be a member of AARP or hang up on the team’s newspaper before you’re even hired. That will be the joke if the Buccaneers hire one of the two guys they are reportedly very high on in their coaching search. Marty Schottenheimer, a proven regular season winner with notable postseason mediocracy, is very interested in taking the job according to sources. “I think they’ve got some great young players on that team,” Shottenheimer said. “In my particular case, I like to work with kids. I refer to them as kids, even though I know they’re grown men. But I like to give them the benefit of my insight as to what I’ve seen and experienced in this business. I’m a teacher is what I am in my view.” Schottenheimer would be the polar opposite of Raheem Morris, who almost had a young guy frat house mentality in Tampa...

  • Last week I thought Marty would be a great hire even though he is getting up in years. I thought wouldn't it be cool to hire Marty and have his son Brian come over as O C for a few years and get probably one of the great teachers of the game to groom him for his repkacement. Boom Brian resigns at NY and I still think there is a deal brewing for the both of them here in Tampa Bay. I think the Glazers want Marty and are just working the details out for Brian. No evidence just a feeling.

Schottenheimer may be right man for Bucs job

The arrow on the "Wow-o-meter" hasn't budged much as the Glazer family's search for a new Bucs head coach rolls into its second week.

Following the recent "youngry" debacle that undid Raheem Morris, the quest for age...

Of all the geriatric interviewees, Marty Schottenheimer is one I can live with

These aren't coaching candidates, this is the NFL unemployment line getting interviews to keep their unemployment checks coming. The only coach I've heard of coming to Tampa Bay to interview that sounds half way decent was the Rooney Rule requirement of Jerry Grey. The rest are over the hill, havn't accomplished anything remarkable to date, and uninspiring.Until I heard...

Wade Philips doesn't want to play with Glazers

Thats it, the Gig is up Glazers, Wade Philips is on to you.And maybe that is our best hope as Bucs fans that this overly geriatric coaching search may have actually been more of an information accumulation.And Wade Philips probably didn't want the Bucs to pick his brain like Sherman and the others.I still would love to see Marty Schottenheimer come in and coach here, but I would...

Brian Schottenheimer is off the hot seat and out the door. The embattled New York Jets offensive coordinator told the team Tuesday that he will not return next season after six years running an offense that often failed to live up to expectations.

Sapp Thinks Brad Childress Is Just Super

Via Rich Eisen‘s photo feed site: I just told @QBKILLA of @JasonLaCanfora report that Bucs about to interview Brad Childress for HC job. His reax: So Warren’s not a fan. But more importantly, caption time! I’ll go for the low-hanging fruit. “Hey Warren, how did David Carradine die again? I keep forgetting.” Yours in the comments.

The New York Jets lose the scapegoat for their quarterback and the man blamed for the eighth worst offense in the NFL when late on Tuesday night they announced that offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer is not returning to the team.

Coaching Update

Sorry about the lack of entries yesterday. I had too much actual work to do to even look at the internet. Sometimes being an international spy really gets in the way of blogging about football. It looks like in the last 24 hours or so, people have kind of forgotten that Mike Sherman exists and Marty Schottenheimer has become the favorite to get the head coaching job in Tampa. People...
