Marty Schottenheimer Will Interview With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Tuesday

Veteran head coach Marty Schottenheimer will interview with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Tuesday, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Schottenheimer may be the most experienced coach still available, as he has exactly 200 career wins. Schottenheimer has been the head coach of four different NFL teams and has been a head coach for a whopping 21 years. In that time, the veteran head coach won a ridiculous 61.3% of his regular season games, garnering 8 division wins and 13 playoff berths.

The playoffs are were Schottenheimer has consistently failed to deliver, though, with just 5 wins to 13 losses. THose failures in the playoffs meant the end of his tenure in San Diego in 2006, when he was fired after a 14-2 2006 season and a divisional game loss to the New England Patriots. His efforts to lay the questions about his playoff performance to rest in the UFL seem to have been for naught, as no one seems to put much stock in last year's UFL Championship win. Schottenheimer is also frequently criticized for his conservative offensive approach. "Marty Ball" is also mockingly called "run, run, pass, punt".

Schottenheimer's extensive experience does mean that he has built one heck of a coaching tree through the years and would certainly be able to assemble a first-class coaching staff. In addition, he has never failed to deliver success during the regular season - and even a single playoff berth would be an improvement right now.
