Byner to interview for RBs post



With one of two position-coach openings now filled, there's a chance the Bucs might fill the remaining vacancy soon.

The Bucs are scheduled to have Earnest Byner in on Tuesday for an interview for running backs coach, a colleague at the Washington Post tells me.

Byner joined the Redskins' staff in 2004 but was one of the franchise's most accomplished running backs during his playing career. The Post reports that Byner was offered a chance to return despite the Redskins' coaching search being incomplete. But Byner was tendered only a one-year contract, which seems to have prompted him to look for a better situation elsewhere.

The running backs job is open because Art Valero left for the St. Louis Rams, where it's expected he'll be an assistant head coach.
