Hunt for a Bucs head coach: Day 23
Top of the list
1. Mike Sherman: Former Packers and Texas A&M coach
2. Rob Chudzinski: Panthers offensive coordinator
3. Mike Zimmer: Bengals defensive coordinator
4. Tom Clements: Packers quarterbacks coach
5. Marty Schottenheimer: Former Browns, Chiefs, Redskins and Chargers coach
6. Brad Childress: Former Vikings coach
7. Jerry Gray: Titans defensive coordinator
• Bucs reportedly conduct their second interview with Sherman on Wednesday.
• Charlotte Observer reports there was a "buzz" that Chudzinski also is in line for a second interview, but that was not confirmed.
• With the Colts hiring Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano on Wednesday and the Raiders finalizing the hiring of Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen, the Bucs are the last team with a vacancy.
The Bucs are said to be progressing, but there's little indication in what direction they are heading.
