Mike Zimmer will interview with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a Head Coaching Position

According to Adam Schefter, Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer will interview with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for their head coaching position. Zimmer is the second coach with no previous head coaching experience to be approached by the Bucs, after they interviewed Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray early in the coaching search.

Mike Zimmer has been consistently successful as a defensive coordinator, producing some very impressive defenses in Cincinnati and Dallas. He's been in the league for a long time, and has produced wherever he's gone. The fact that he managed to mold a young Bengals defense into a stout unit will appeal to the Bucs, and the fact that he runs a 4-3 defense which would fit the Bucs personnel certainly doesn't hurt either.

We have looked at Mike Zimmer as a potential head coaching candidate before, and most Bucs fans seemed to like him at the time. Zimmer is an intriguing candidate with a lot of experience, but he's just the latest name in a long list of coaches the Bucs have interviewed.
