Buccaneers eliminate Marty Schottenheimer, Mike Zimmer and Brad Childress as candidates

As the story of Greg Schiano continues to unfold, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have also eliminated other candidates from their list. According to Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune the Bucs have eliminated Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, former Vikings head coach Brad Childress and former Chargers head coach Marty Schottenheimer as potential hires. Along with an earlier report that the Bucs had eliminated Jerry Gray, that leaves just a handful of candidates for the Bucs if the Greg Schiano hire does not go through.

In addition to Schiano, the remaining candidates that we know of are former Green Bay head coach Mike Sherman, Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski and Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Tom Clements.If Greg Schiano is not hired, the Bucs could choose from that list of coaches - or they could pull yet another rabbit of their hat, as they have been so adapt at doing this offseason.
