The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are starting out their Head Coaching search by interviewing Mike Sherman, and also Jerry Grey, who as an african-american minority fulfills the Bucs requirement towards the Rooney rule, which requires all NFL teams who are searching for head coaches to at least interview...
-- According to several sources, former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris is in Washington, D.C., talking to the Redskins about … well, something. And since the Shanahans don't need any specific advice on how to tank a season like the Bucs just did (they have that well-covered, thank you), we can assume that Raheem might be discussing a position on the team'...
