Brad Childress Will Be Interviewed On Monday by Bucs, Wade Phillips and Marty Schottenheimer candidates too

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will interview Brad Childress on Monday, presumably as a head coaching candidate. Childress was the Minnesota Vikings' head coach from 2006 to 2010 and has a coaching record of 39-35. He reached the NFC Championship in 2009 with Brett Favre as his quarterback, but the Vikings collapsed the following season and he was fired after 10 games with a 3-7 record that year.

Childress did have more success as the Philadelphia Eagles' offensive coordinator from 2003 to 2005, helping the Eagles reach the NFC Championship three consecutive times and making it to the Super Bowl in 2004. There's also the possibility are interviewing him as a possible offensive coordinator for whichever head coach they hire.

In addition, Mortensen reports that the Bucs are looking at Houston defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and experienced head coach Marty Schottenheimer, in addition to Bengals DC Mike Zimmer and the already interviewed Mike Sherman and Titans DC Jerry Gray. All of these coaches shine through experience, with only Mike Zimmer and Jerry Gray having never been a head coach before.

I will have some coaching profiles up on all of these candidates tomorrow.
