Is Perry Fewell On The Radar?January 10th, 2012
Former Bucs defensive end Steve White (1996-2001) threw a new name into the hat of potential Bucs coaches yesterday during an appearance on PrimeTime on WHBO-AM 1040.
The outspoken, analytical White said he’d give consideration to New York Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell, whose defense revived itself in December and pitched a shutout Sunday against Atlanta in the Wild Card round.
Fewell’s an interesting candidate. He went 3-4 as Buffalo Bills head coach during an interim capacity in 2009. He’s 49 years old and must be a disciplinarian type if he’s working for Tom Coughlin, and he worked for Coughlin for in Jacksonville as secondary coach. He’s also weathered major fire in New York and has been lauded for making adjustments over the past four weeks after the Giants defense was torched by the Saints, Packers and Cowboys.
Surely a Fewell interview would get a collective “Who?” from Bucs fans. But if you’re going to interview Brad Childress, then Fewell should probably be on the radar.
