Hunt for a Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach: Day 12

Hunt for a Bucs head coach: Day 12

Top of the list

1. Mike Sherman: Former Packers and Texas A&M coach

2. Marty Schottenheimer: Former Browns, Chiefs, Redskins and Chargers coach

3. Brad Childress: Former Vikings coach

4. Rob Chudzinski: Panthers offensive coordinator

5. Mike Zimmer: Bengals defensive coordinator

On the radar

1. Jerry Gray: Titans defensive coordinator

What's new

• NFL.com reports Miami is considering bringing Zimmer in for a second interview.

• San Francisco Chronicle reports Green Bay linebackers coach/assistant head coach Winston Moss, a Bucs second-round pick in 1987, is the front-runner in Oakland.

Our take

The Bucs were expected to spend this weekend talking to candidates, including Zimmer and Chudzinski. But there are potential candidates on coaching staffs that had games this weekend, so the Bucs await the outcomes to see when those coaches will be available. The Bucs continue to take their time. But with Jeff Fisher close to a deal and, presumably, assembling a staff in St. Louis, other dominoes could start to fall soon. The Bucs are in the process of eliminating candidates and, presumably, getting closer to a decision.
