The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been officially on the hunt for their next offensive coordinator after their 2-14 season concluded last Sunday. After reportedly interviewing several candidates through the weekend, they may have offered the position to a division rival's offensive coordinator.
It's my understanding that the Bucs may have offered the position to Atlanta's offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter. A source close to the Bucs tells me that it is Koetter's job if he wants and that the personnel fits him well. This comes on the heels of a report from Shawn Ferris that says sources from Atlanta have told him Koetter is leaning towards taking the job in Tampa Bay.
The Bucs have also interviewed San Francisco’s offensive coordinator Greg Roman and for Chicago head coach Marc Trestman. Roman is in line for interviews with other clubs while Trestman may be drawing interest from Jacksonville. Many have tied Trestman to the Buccaneers but it does not appear to be happening.
Tampa Bay’s offense in 2014 was lackluster at best. They seemed set on interviewing or targeting those with experience. They have done so and could be prepared to announce their next coordinator in Koetter in the coming days.
