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.

    Tennis

    With the Sept. 29 opening of "Battle of the Sexes" — the movie starring Emma Stone and Steve Carrell about Billie Jean King's landmark 1973 tennis win over Bobby Riggs — we thought there might be renewed interest in this 2013 Peter Jamison story from the Tampa Bay Times.

    TAMPA — A coach yells across the field into a scrum of blue-and-white clad football bodies at Jefferson High: "Kim Mitchell! Kim Mitchell, come here!"

    These twins are not only identical, but they have almost identical names. Kim Mitchell III, left, and Kim Mitchell IV are  talented football players at Jefferson High with Division I-A college offers. Kim  III wears No. 22 and plays cornerback while Kim IV wears No. 11 and plays safety. (Scott Purks, Special to the Times)
