Report: Bucs' Sullivan to interview for Army job
On Wednesday, Bucs offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan declined to answer questions about the possibility of him interviewing for the head coaching job at his alma mater, Army, saying he "would like to just center our questions and focus on the Rams."
On Friday, according to the Times Herald-Record of Middleton (N.Y.), Sullivan will interview for the Army job, two days before the Bucs face the Rams in St. Louis.
"There is an appropriate time and place for all those type of answers to those questions, and I think right now, especially given where we're at offensively, and some of the challenges that we have and what faces us this Sunday in St. Louis, if we could, I would like to just center our quesitons and focus on the Rams," Sullivan said Wednesday. "Certainly, I'm sure there are plenty of questions you guys have for the offense and on some of the issues that we've had, which are well-documented."
Sullivan played defensive back at Army and worked there two stints as an assistant coach, from 1995-96 and 1999-00. The Bucs' offense, depleted by many injuries, has dropped to 32nd (last) in the NFL in total offense, passing offense and third-down conversion success. Sullivan was not available for comment on Thursday.
