I knew the Jags already interviewed Chud.

What do you all think of Jerry Gray? He could very well be a pleasant surprise for us.

This space for rent....*sigh* I trusted you coach.

Jerry Gray is the requirement for the Rooney Rule. I don't have anything against him but there is NO way in HELL he is being selected as HC.

Fans will not be pleased with another no-name token candidate being chosen as head coach. We want a proven winner and a hard-ass.

Except Jerry's a winner as well. The D-lines he's coached speak for themselves.

Yeah, he may be a serious candidate. I'm pretty sure he's from Houston, which might explain the odd location for an interview. He used to coach in Texas with the Longhorns.

While I think Gray is just the interview to satisfy the Rooney-Rule (although he could blow them away in the interview), he is far and away more experienced than Morris.

Quote
After retiring as a player, Gray turned to coaching. He served as the defensive backs coach for the Tennessee Titans between 1999 and 2000. Then was hired by former Titans defensive coordinator Gregg Williams to run the Buffalo Bills defense the same year Williams left Tennessee to become the Buffalo Head Coach. He served as the defensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills from 2001 to 2005, where he oversaw one of the top defenses in the NFL until his final season. The Bills ranked 2nd in total defense in both 2003 and 2004. After the 2005 season he was hired by the Washington Redskins to serve as their defensive backs coach under Jim Zorn. During the 2009 season he applied for the head coaching position at the University of Memphis but was unsuccessful. At the end of the season, he was interviewed for the Redskins' head coach position despite the fact that Zorn was still in the job.[2][3][4] On January 18, 2010, Gray was hired as the new defensive backs coach for the Seattle Seahawks.[5]

On January 17, 2011, Gray returned to his alma mater to join the Texas Longhorns staff as assistant head coach and defensive backs coach. According to several stockers, the deal for Gray to return as Duane Akina's replacement had been in works for several weeks prior to his hiring.

On February 12, 2011, Gray agreed to terms with the Tennessee Titans.

@NFLSTROUD (Rick Stroud):
Per Adam Schefter, Bucs will interview Jerry Gray Thursday in Houston. He's from that area, apparently.

Interesting that they are going to him.  One of those..."screw you guys, if you want to satisfy the NFL rules you come to me"....

hmmm...

Per Adam Schefter, "Jeff Fisher will most likely decide between Miami and the St. Louis Rams"

Per Jim Wyatt, "Gray flew out of Nashville 2day for the interview. I'll be surprised if he gets TB job but I could see him as a head coach one day"

Tom Silverstein of the Journal Sentinel reports, "Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin is taking full advantage of the open window available to him to interview for head coaching positions." The second suitor is unknown, but is rumored to be the Jacksonville Jaguars. Other teams with openings are the Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and St. Louis Rams

Gray might be greater than Morris but there are several other DCs wiho would be better like Mike Zimmer or Gregg Williams.
