Report: Alabama offensive line coach doesn't want to come to Tampa

It has been a while since I've written a piece on coaches declining to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but it's happening again: University of Alabama offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland didn't even want to interview with the Buccaneers for their open offensive line position, according to Alabama beat writer Izzy Gould.

The Bucs appear to have exhausted their options in the professional coaching ranks, and have moved on to trying to hire college coaches - even though that, too, doesn't appear to be actually happening. The Bucs reportedly also interviewed Ohio State cornerbacks coach Bill Sheridan for their defensive coordinator position, but with no news since that report it seems likely they've moved on from him.

When your team is interviewing college position coaches for coordinator jobs, you know they're struggling to find coaches. When they're being turned down by college coaches, that's not a good sign, either. Free agency and the draft are swiftly approaching, and the Bucs still don't have a full coaching staff.
