JANUARY 09, 2012


Marty Schottenheimer to interview with Bucs Tuesday


It's going to be a busy week of interviews for the Bucs as they continue to search for a new head coach.
 
Former Vikings head coach Brad Childress, 55, is meeting with the Bucs today. Despite reports that Childress could be considered for a position of offensive coordinator, the Times confirmed he is interviewing for Tampa Bay's head coaching job.
 
Marty Schottenheimer, 68, is scheduled to meet with the Bucs owners and general manager Mark Dominik on Tuesday. Schottenheimer served as the head coach and general manager of the United Football League's Virginia Destroyers this year and went 3-1 during an abbreviated season. He was fired in 2007 after leading the San Diego Chargers to a 14-2 record and suffering a loss in the second round of the playoffs.
 
Houston Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, 64, is scheduled to interview with the Bucs in Houston Friday. The Texans play in the AFC Divisional playoff in Baltimore on Sunday.
 
Phillips has done a remarkable job in his first season with the Texans, taking them from 30th in the NFL in total defense to second (281 yards per game). The Texans have already set a single-season record for sacks (41) and rank 10th in takeaways (26).
 
Phillips is 82-59 as an NFL head coach with the Broncos, Bills, Cowboys, and Saints (interim).
 
Tampa Bay already has interviewed former Green Bay Packers and Texas A&M head coach Mike Sherman, 57, last Wednesday in Texas. Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray, 49, met with the Bucs in Houston last week. Gray has no previous head coaching experience.
 
Childress coached the Vikings from 2006-10, winning two NFC North titles. His overall record was 39-35 before he was fired after a 3-7 start in 2010.
 
 In 2009, the Vikings went 12-4 and reached the NFC Championship game before losing to the eventual Super Bowl champion Saints.

Bucs to interview Marty Schottenheimer

 Posted by Michael David Smith on January 9, 2012, 11:17 AM EST

 
AP

Marty Schottenheimer is 68 years old and hasn’t coached in the NFL since the Chargers fired him following the 2006 season, but that doesn’t mean he’s done.
 
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that Schottenheimer will interview with the Buccaneers for their head-coaching vacancy on Tuesday.
 
Schottenheimer’s son Brian has been discussed as a head-coaching candidate this offseason, but not many people expected to hear Marty’s name mentioned for any coaching vacancies. But the Bucs apparently want an old-school coach to whip their roster into shape, and Schottenheimer is certainly that.
 
As coach of the Browns from 1984 to 1988, the Chiefs from 1989 to 1998, the Redskins in 2001 and the Chargers from 2002 to 2006, Schottenheimer went 200-126-1 in the regular season and 5-13 in the playoffs.
 
Most recently Schottenheimer was head coach of the Virginia Destroyers of the United Football League.







From Rotoworld......


The Bucs will interview Marty Schottenheimer for their head-coaching vacancy on Tuesday, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

 Schottenheimer, 68, was last on an NFL sideline in 2006 when he led the Chargers to a 14-2 record. He got fired after that season thanks to a dispute with hard-nosed GM A.J. Smith. Since then, he's spent time as an ESPN analyst and in charge of the UFL's Virginia Destroyers. Schottenheimer's career NFL record is 200-126-1 during the regular season, but he has posted a 5-13 postseason mark.

Marty will immediately become the front runner.

Surprised he's interested in coming back to coaching.

Just say no to Phillips, Sherman and Childress.

Go get Bridgewater.   Do what it takes.

I am SO excited about this news!!!! Marty is the only one I would trust with this team in the shape it's in right now. He's heads and shoulders above the other candidates.

A fantastic move by the Glazers! Hiring Marty would be the best thing they could do.

It seems inconceivable the Bucs could make the playoffs in 2012 – with Marty, it seems likely.

This is such an idiotic argument. He's in better shape than a lot of the coaches in the NFL now.

this team in theory should be able to contend in 3 years if our players develop has hoped.  Just long enough for Marty to right the ship and cultivated a winning and professional atmosphere.  And possibly  we could promote from within.  sounds goods.

IIRC you are correct, his 113th birthday wasn't until late February after he left Tampa.
