Sherman meeting with Bucs owners today

Former Green Bay Packers and Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman will have a second interview today with the Bucs, 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."
