“None Of Those Conversations Occurred”

Bucs offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan reacts to a report he pursued the Boston College head coaching gig

Bucs offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan quashed the notion that he reached out to throw his name in the ring for the now filled Boston College head coaching job. Today at One Buc Palace, it was Sullivan’s first time before local media to comment on Sunday’s report from ESPN.

Sullivan explained that all his attention and energy “has been and will continue to be on the Buccaneers offense.” He said before he would pursue another job would be to talk to Greg Schiano, then Mark Dominik, and then Team Glazer. “None of those conversations occurred.”

Now Joe’s a cynical guy. Joe’s not questioning the Sullivan’s integrity, but surely Sullivan’s agent could have tossed his client’s name in the mix at Boston College. It’s a common tactic this time of year to guage interest in the marketplace, college and professional.

    it’s a common tactic for media to post rumors, especially unsubstantiated fluff, too.
