The Buccaneers offensive coordinator search to replace Jeff Teford hasn’t gotten off to a great start, as one of their candidates they were hoping to interview,was denied the opportunity by the Titans.
Mike Mularkey, who spent time with the Buccaneers as an assistant (94-95) was an NFL coordinator with the Steelers, Dolphins and Falcons before being hired as the head coach of the Jaguars, and is currently the tight ends coach in Tennessee. After one 2-14 season in Jacksonville, Mularkey was fired by the Jaguars and replaced by Gus Bradley. The Titans denied the Bucs permission to interview according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
Other candidates to emerge according to multiple reports are the 49ers Greg Roman, Jets Marty Mornhinweg and Falcons OC Dirk Koetter. Other names mentioned include recently fired Bears head Marc Trestman, former Browns coach Rob Chudzinski and former Vikings head coach Brad Childress.
Mark Cook currently is the director of editorial content and Bucs beat writer and has written for PewterReport.com since 2011. Cook has followed the Buccaneers since 1977 when he first began watching football with his Dad and is fond of the 1979 Bucs team that came within 10 points of going to a Super Bowl. His favorite Bucs game is still the 1979 divisional playoff win 24-17 over the Eagles. In his spare time Cook enjoys playing guitar, fishing, surfing and family time at the beach. In addition, Cook can be found in front of a television or in Doak Campbell any time the FSU Seminoles are playing. Cook is a native of Pinecrest in Eastern Hillsborough County and has written for numerous publications including the Tampa Tribune, In the Field and Ya'll Magazine.

Probably sour grapes for us tanking vs the Saints.. Either way they did us a favor
Personally I think they did us a favor. Not at all what I had in mind…..as if THAT mattered.
we can and must do better than that
Mularkey has been associated with too many bad teams lately. He’s probably used to being 2-14 as a head coach and position coach. Don’t want him here even if he had some good results many years ago w/ Pittsburgh.
if the above is the choices chud or trestman, but even they don’t excite me
