Report: Sullivan Will Interview In ChicagoDecember 31st, 2012
Word out of the Chicago Sun-Times and various other sources has Bucs offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan scheduled to interview soon for the Chicago Bears head coaching job. Former head coach Lovie Smith was fired today.
Sullivan’s West Point/Army Ranger military background, his Super Bowl rings coaching with the Giants, and his measurable yet limited success with the Bucs offense, make him a prime head coaching candidate.
Joe wrote about this many weeks ago, though some readers here scoffed at Joe’s logic.
Is Sullivan head coaching material? Joe can’t vouch for that, but he’s surely a sound candidate and Joe would expect he’ll get other looks, as well.
Sullivan’s departure would not be a good thing for Josh Freeman. The last thing Freeman needs is change that likely would rattle his confidence.
Will Greg Schiano ask Team Glazer to step up and lock up Sullivan to stay in Tampa? That’s an important question as the clock ticks into 2013.
