Buccaneers to bring in one former head coach and one coordinator as finalists per report

With Joe Philbin and Tom Clements the Tampa Bay Buccaneers seem to have finished this round of interviews for their vacant head coaching position. According to ESPN.com (via the Tampa Bay Times), the Buccaneers will likely bring back one coordinator and one former head coach next week as finalists for the position.

The Bucs have interviewed a plethora of former head coaches and coordinators. Mike Sherman, Marty Schottenheimer and Brad Childress are the three former head coaches they have interviewed. Rob Chudzinski, Mike Zimmer, Jerry Gray and Joe Philbin have also been interviewed and are all coordinators. The final candidate is Tom Clements, who is currently the Green Bay Packers' head coach quarterbacks coach.

If the Bucs do stick to this timetable and do not bring in Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell after the weekend as some expect, the Bucs should have a head coach in place within the next two weeks. The Bucs are still behind the eight-ball when it comes to interviewing possible assistant coaches, but the Oakland Raiders, Miami Dolphins and Indianapolis Colts are all still looking for head coaches as well.
