Report: Bill Lazor won't join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

New, comments

According to a report by Alex Marvez of Fox Sports, Ron Turner and Bill Lazor were both candidates to be the next Buccaneers offensive coordinator. Well, no longer is that the case according to the Cavalier Insider, who cover the Virginia Cavaliers. Bill Lazor is the offensive coordinator at Virginia and will remain in that capacity, if they can be believed. It's not clear whether Lazor turned down the Bucs or whether the Bucs weren't interested in Lazor after interviewing him.

That leaves Ron Turner as the only known candidate for offensive coordinator. Frank Cignetti Jr. was rumored to be joining the Buccaneers for weeks, but he took a job with the St. Louis Rams as their quarterbacks coach. Given the way the Bucs approached the head coaching search it wouldn't surprise me if they came up with a surprise hire, however. Hue Jackson is still on the market, at least.
