Rob Chudzinski to interview with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

With Adam Schefter first reporting that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will interview Mike Zimmer as a head coaching candidate, Jason La Canfora now reports that the Bucs will also bring in Rob Chudzinski for an interview. Chudzinski made a name for himself as the Carolina Panthers' offensive coordinator this season, helping develop Cam Newton into an impressive young quarterback and producing a very potent offense.

But Chudzinski has a bigger resume than just this year. He's been in the NFL since 2004 and has coached at the college level, most notably as the offensive coordinator for early 2000s Miami Hurricanes, winning a national championship there. He has a background as a tight ends coach, and has helped Antonio Gates and Kellen Winslow Jr. produce some of their best seasons.

Personally, I'm a big fan of Chudzinski, who has consistently produced in his relatively short coaching career. Getting Derek Anderson to the Pro Bowl and turning Braylon Edwards into a terrifically productive receiver is no mean feat. But Chudzinski is also a very young coach who has not had exhaustive experience at the NFL level, and with the Bucs mainly interviewing experienced coaches so far, he may not be what they're really looking for. Still, at least this search is become wider and more exhaustive.
