Koetter lining up assistants in case he's offered HC job
Bucs offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter has contacted assistant coaches in an attempt to line up a staff in case he gets a head coaching job with Tampa Bay or the 49ers.
Koetter remains a ‘strong candidate,’ for the Bucs head coaching job after interviewing for the position with general manager Jason Licht Monday. He met with the 49ers last week.
Arizona Cardinals offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin and Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott also interviewed with Licht last week. Both are coaching in NFC divisional games this weekend.
Contrary to reports in Pro Football Talk, Koetter had not been offered the Bucs job, nor have their been any negotiations.
