Bengals Coach Mike Zimmer A Candidate For Head Coaching Position In Tampa Bay

New, comments

There stands a realistic chance that Cincinnati could lose both of their coordinators during the offseason. Jay Gruden has been connected as the favorite for the Jacksonville Jaguars head coaching position, according to reports, and Mike Zimmer is a candidate for multiple head coaching jobs.

According to ESPN, Zimmer is a candidate for the head coaching position position in Tampa Bay after the Buccaneers fired Raheem Morris last week following a mediocre 17-31 record in three seasons. Other candidates in Tampa Bay includes Houston Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, former Packers head coach Mike Sherman and Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray.

Jason wrote on Sunday that the Miami Dolphins have expressed interest in Zimmer now that everyone "senses" that Jeff Fisher will be headed to St. Louis.

The Bengals defense that Zimmer ran has finished in the top ten in two of the four seasons he's been with Cincinnati, never finishing worse than 15th (2010).
