    tampabay.comBucs contact Lovie Smith about their head coaching jobMonday, December 30, 2013 6:20pmThe Bucs could bring Lovie Smith back to Tampa Bay.The Glazer family which owns the team has made contact with Smith about their vacant head coaching position. Smith, who was the Chicago Bears head coach for nine seasons, is considered the frontrunner to replace Greg Schiano, who was fired along with general manager Mark Dominik Monday.Smith began his NFL career as a linebackers coach for the Bucs under Tony Dungy in 1996. He has interviewed for the Houston Texans head coaching job and is likely to draw interest from several other teams. But those close to Smith said he is particularly intrigued by the opporunity to coach the Bucs.

    Jeffrey R. “Jeff” Tedford (born November 2, 1961) is a former American football college coach, most recently the head coach of California. He was twice named Pac-10 Coach of the Year, and holds Cal records for most wins, games coached, and bowl game victories.Tedford played college football for Fresno State before playing professionally at quarterback in the Canadian Football League (CFL). In his first head coaching position, Tedford inherited a Cal team that had won only one game in its 2001 season. He was named conference coach of the year in his first season in 2002 after winning seven games. Cal was ranked No. 2 nationwide midseason in 2007, the school's highest ranking since 1951. However, Tedford's teams struggled later in his Cal tenure, particularly from 2010–2012, and he was fired after the 2012 season.[1] He was the highest paid state employee of California as of 2011.[2]

    Just heard it on NFL network.  Smith realizes the offensive questions about his past and believes he's answered it by saying that Tedford will be his OC.

    That might work…but who would be his DC? As much as the Tampa 2 defined us, the league has caught up to it, and you can only get away with running it if you have HOF talent on all three levels.
