Even though most reports would have us believe that the head coaching competition is between Marty Schottenheimer and Mike Sherman, the Bucs are evidently still on the hunt for their perfect candidate. Per @AdamSchefter #Bucs have requested permission to interview Bengals def. coord. Mike Zimmer. A solid candidate w/serious credentials. Zimmer is 55 and a good defensive guy who runs the 4-3 but also ran the 3-4 when he was working under Bill Parcells. He’d probably go with a 4-3, though. I really thought the Bucs would go with an offensive coach since Josh Freeman is the franchise, but Zimmer as a late addition to the list tells me that they’re still open to pretty much anyone as long as they were alive for the Nixon administration.

Like maybe the experienced route.   The mere fact Fisher was widely regarded as the ultimate prize [...]

Schottenheimer package deal appears unlikely for Bucs

The strange coincidence of Marty Schottenheimer interviewing for the Bucs' head coaching post on the same day his son's resignation as Jets offensive coordinator became public was just too strange to ignore. But there are two problems with making any assumptions about Tuesday's independent events. Start with the obvious: Marty Schottenheimer doesn't yet know whether...

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...
