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 hold out for an exciting offensive or defensive coordinator who has a proven track record of working with someone. While this person is not likely to be a big name, it may be the best outcome for the Bucs.However its also possible the Bucs are looking at a Schottenheimer as a bridge to a new young coach, thinking Bucs fans will get excited once the Bucs can start winning again, and then sell a new young coach as another version of "Look were doing the Dungy to Gruden thing again". Philips informed the Bucs he was withdrawing from consideration for the Bucs job. He did so the day before the inte...

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. The unfolding interview parade of older, seasoned candidates has been sedate and excitement-free, largely like the candidates themselves. Following the recent "youngry" debacle that undid Raheem Morris, the quest for age...

Some Smart NFL Team Should Hire Marty Schottenheimer, The Most Underappreciated NFL Coach of All-Time

This post is going to be relatively quick, because the point is an easy one to make. It boils down to this: Some smart NFL franchise that values winning and player development should hire Marty Schottenheimer, who is one of the most underrated coaches, in any sport, of my lifetime. We hear often, and correctly, that winning football games in the National Football League is hard...

Bucs High on Schottenheimer, Childress

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...

Schottenheimer Resigns as Jets OC

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. In a statement released by the team Tuesday night, Schottenheimer said he made the decision "after much thought and consideration...

Marty Schottenheimer, Jim Fassel offer experience in coaching search

  With Jeff Fisher out of the picture and no other so-called sexy candidates _ Bill Cowher, Jon Gruden and the like _ on the horizon, it’s time the Dolphins took a different tack on their coaching search. Like maybe the experienced route.   The mere fact Fisher was widely regarded as the ultimate prize [...]

Letting It Zimmer

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...

Jets fire their scapegoat, hire Dolphins’ scapegoat

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. While no formal announcement has been made, the Jets are expected to unveil former Miami Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano as their new coordinator...

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...
