Todd Bowles Confirms Report

January 6th, 2021

Focused on playoff game.

Late last night the creator, curator and overall guru of Pro Football Talk, the great Mike Florio, reported that Bucs defensive coordinator Todd Bowles is interviewing with Atlanta next week for a head coaching position.

Asked about that today, Bowles said very little other than to confirm Florio’s report.

“Yeah, that’s true,” Bowles said. He then clammed up about it. “Right now I’m focusing on the playoff game. That [interview] will come in time and I will deal with that then.”

Though short on details, Joe appreciates Bowles’ transparency.

There are no other reports of the former Jets head coach (2015-2018) getting interviews.

Of course, fans already learned that Bucco Bruce Arians would advise Bowles against taking the Atlanta job because they don’t have a general manager.

    Bowles is a seasoned interviewer, he’d not putting much thought into the Atlanta job.

  2. Robert Says:

    Respect that answer. Hope he gets the job.

    Bowles is in a place now in his career where he is probably wise enough to know that it isn’t just him being interviewed, but he will need to be interviewing them as well.
    He knows the headaches of a head coaching gig gone wrong, and I doubt he is looking to have that situation repeat itself.

    He won’t go anywhere

    Of course Atlanta would interview Bowles. Hire a division rivals DC, you get the blueprint to defeat the scheme. Odds are if they hire TB we will elevate an assistant and keep the scheme. He’s likely a backup candidate, has HC experience and the keys to division rivals defense, makes sense for ATL to at least look at Bowles.
    Hopefully he stays.

    Bowles is one of the..Good Huys. I like him but..some coaches are best when they stay in their specialties. Like Koetter for example. Bowles had the helm with the Jets and did not fare so well. I think he is best suited as a Defensive Coordinator. And there is nothing wrong with that. I think it would be a big mistake for him to take the ATL job. But that’s all on their owner.

    Teams must request meetings with Coaches from organizations, but when do they actually occur?

  10. Listnfrmafar Says:

    See you around like a donut Bowles. If you don’t get the ring this year you may miss out next year. Imagine how feared Bucs would be with a real DC?

    Man I tell ya, depending on how you look at it that job could be very enticing, if you think that Matt Ryan still has some of what made him a league MVP a few short years ago and if you think Julio can remain a dominant WR1 for a couple more seasons. Or if you think its time to move on from #2 and #11 on top of all the pieces you need to fix the defensive side of the ball coupled with the fact that even if you know by the time of the interview, who your GM will be, he willmost likely be new to the team as well, this could be a very anxiety inducing gig. After his stint with the Jets I’d think he would like to avoid the possibility of a second underwhelming W/L record to add to his resumé

    I know its probably not easy to turn down a HC job but given where this team is at right now, I would think there is a good possibility that he will decide to stay with us until Brady hangs it up and Bruce does the same. We have a very young and talented defense and we should continue to be competitive for the next few seasons at the very least. If he did stay with us, he could very well be the guy that the Bucs turn to when Bruce is done. I dont know what the Falcons would do if we didnt have a coach for them to hire every couple years.
