The Bucs are still searching far and wide to fill a number of vacancies on their staff including offensive coordinator. New reports have Tampa Bay in the process of interviewing Ron Turner and Bill Lazor.
With Tampa Bay’s new head coach Greg Schiano denied the opportunity to interview the Cardinal's John McNulty and Green Bay's Ben McAdoo for their vacant offensive coordinator position, the focus is now on two more names – former Bears offensive coordinator Ron Turner and University of Virginia offensive coordinator Bill Lazor.
Turner, brother of Chargers coach Norv Turner, had two stints as offensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears (1993-1996 and 2005-2009). Turner most recently was the quarterbacks coach for Indianapolis.
FoxSports.com’s Alex Marvez reported the two additional names today and also reported Schiano will bring in at least three Rutgers’ assistants to Tampa – Bob Fraser (linebackers), Brian Angelichio (tight ends) and Jeff Haley (assistant defensive backs coach).
Schiano is also believed to have hired former Rutgers receivers coach P.J. Fleck for the same position in Tampa, although no official announcements have been made.
Rutgers offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti, thought to be a prospect to join the Buccaneers, has reportedly joined the St. Louis Rams as their new quarterbacks coach.
