Report: Buccaneers offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan won't leave for Boston College

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Just three days ago, ESPN linked Mike Sullivan to the open Boston College head coaching job. It seems that that job is off the table already, as new reports indicate that Sullivan is not in the running for the job (anymore).

UPDATE: Boston College has hired Steve Addazio

ESPN cites sources saying that Boston College is looking at its final three candidates: Notre Dame defensive coordinator Bob Diaco, Ball State head coach Pete Lembo and New Orleans Saints offensive line coach Aaron Kromer. That means the Buccaneers won't lose Sullivan to Boston College, although that doesn't mean his name won't surface elsewhere.

The Tampa Bay Times, though, says that "information out of One Buc Place this week indicates" that Sullivan is not seeking the Boston College job, which may mean he won't be interested in other coaching jobs either.

Maintaining some year-to-year consistency on offense is going to be crucial for the development of Josh Freeman and the other young players on offense, and losing Sullivan now could be a devastating blow to the offense. Moreover, Sullivan has turned the Tampa Bay offense into an explosive and very productive unit, a big turnaround from last year's lackluster showing.
