Mike Sherman meeting with Tampa Bay Buccaneers owners today

Former Green Bay Packers and Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman will have a second interview today with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Tampa Bay Times confirmed.

The meeting is being conducted at a secret location outside of Tampa and Texas, where Sherman met with members of the Glazer family and general manager Mark Dominik a few weeks ago.

Sherman is the only known candidate to be a finalist and asked to return for a second interview. As of Tuesday, the Bucs had not contacted any of the candidates they interviewed to tell them they were no longer being considered.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported that Sherman was meeting with the Bucs owners today.

The Charlotte Obverver reported Wednesday there was a 'buzz' at the Senior Bowl workouts in Mobile, Ala., that Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski would receive a second interview with the Bucs. But Panthers coach Ron Rivera was unaware of a second meeting between the Bucs and Chudzinski.

"I haven't heard that," Rivera told the Times in Mobile, Monday. But the Panthers coach is hoping for a quick resolution.

"Believe me, I'd love to know just so we can go forward," Rivera said. "We've got a lot of things we have to do and we've kind of put (them) off during this whole period."

    ST. PETERSBURG — It was still a game in the fifth inning when LHP Blake Snell walked the leadoff batter, then allowed a single. One swing by the Cubs' Ian Happ (22 home runs) could put a dent in the Rays' three-run lead.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The first foray back to the Trop by the best manager the Rays have had obscured the second return visit by arguably the second-best player in franchise history.

    Figures.

    Chicago Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist (18) grounds into a double play to end the top of the third inning of the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017.

    One success story of this lost season is the emergence of LHP Blake Snell as the frontline starter the Rays projected. After a rough start and two demotions, he has been rolling, Wednesday's solid seven innings making him 4-0, 2.57 in his past eight starts.
