The search for quality assistant coaches is starting to become comical. Whether the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are being blocked or whether assistants just don't want to join the staff, the Bucs are having one hell of a hard time finding the right assistant coaches.

This time, the Green Bay Packers blocked the Buccaneers from interviewing TE coach Ben McAdoo from interviewing for the offensive coordinator job, according to Jason La Canfora. It's interesting that McAdoo's name hadn't surfaced in relation to the Bucs, and that they've consistently been rumored to want Rutgers offensive coordinator John McNulty. Once again Tampa Bay is keeping their real list of candidates under wraps, as they did throughout the head coaching search.

But that head coaching search took nearly a month, and the length of that search seems to be preventing the Bucs from getting the coaches they really want. Who could have guessed that that would happen?
