Conflicting Information On First Coach InterviewJanuary 3rd, 2012
Ah, the magic (and speed of Twitter). Within a handful of minutes, beat writers for both the Bucs and the Titans were in conflict about the Bucs’ first interview to fill the open head coaching position with the team.
Per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, via Twitter, the Bucs plan to interview Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray Wednesday.
@NFLSTROUD: Bucs plan to interview Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray. Will make Bucs compliant with the Rooney Rule
Hold up, writes Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean. He is the paper’s beat writer for the Titans and Wyatt claims there’s a little technicality to take care of first before Gray interviews with the Bucs.
@jwyattsports: Tampa Bay plans to interview #Titans DC Jerry Gray for their h.c job, reports St. Petersburg Times. TB hasn’t asked for permission yet tho
So which is it? Have the Bucs asked for permission or is the interview locked in?
Time will tell, Joe’s sure of it.
