Rutgers Head Coach Emerging As A Possible Candidate For Buccaneers Head Coach

Another candidate is emerging for Tampa Bay's open head coaching position that hasn't otherwise been mentioned yet. According to 620 WDAE in Tampa Bay (via Rick Stroud for the Tampa Bay Times) the Buccaneers could be favoring Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano as a candidate for their vacant head coaching job. No confirmation has been made and only 620 WDAE in Tampa is reporting this.

[Note: Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network confirmed that Schiano is under consideration]

Previous reports suggested that there were two candidates remaining for the open head coaching position in Tampa Bay. One of them we know is Mike Sherman. The second was widely believed to be Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski. It's possible that Chudzinski isn't it at all and that the team is making one last effort to bring in another established college head coach.

As for Mike Zimmer, mum continues to be the word though this all. However it appears that the Buccaneers are slowly favoring an offensive-minded head coach, already eliminating Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray and interviewing Sherman with rumors of Chudzinski possibly receiving a second interview. However before Schiano became Rutgers head coach, he was a defensive coordinator for the Miami Hurricanes from 1999 and 2000 and a defensive coach with the Chicago Bears before that.
