Experience Seems To Excite Bucs’ BrassJanuary 8th, 2012
Team Glazer’s promised no-stone-unturned search for a head coach will take a wild turn this week when Brad Childress, Wade Phillips and Marty Chokenheimer are expected to get hard looks and/or interviews, per various media reports.
So much for “yungry.”
Veteran Tampa Tribune scribe Woody Cummings even talked to Chokenheimer, who seems quite excited.
“I think my agent called them, and (while) nothing has been finalized, I am interested in the job,” Schottenheimer, 69, said. “I think it’s an interesting situation there. I should know something (more) in the next 48 hours).
Joe’s not quite sure of what to make of this virtual dead head coaches society booking flights to Tampa. At least these guys will make Mike Sherman look like a fresh face. Maybe the Bucs will interview Newt Gingrich during his next campaign stop in Florida?
Obviously, these are all savvy football men who will know how to interview and come prepared to dazzle Team Glazer. Joe can only imagine how fired up Chokenheimer will be, maybe even giving one of his famous speeches or emotional pleas.
Joe’s really enjoying the post-Raheem madness.
What’s Bruce Coslet up to these days?
