    I watch ESPN NFL Insiders and NFL Live every day. Take it with a grain of salt, as I don’t know how much their reporters are in the know, but over the last two weeks on those shows, Mike Smith’s name has never come up as a potential head coaching candidate for anyone. Again, I don’t know how well they research, et al. to come up with their names, but that is just what I’ve seen. I don’t watch the NFL aka Cowboys Network much, so I’m not sure what they have said on that network. As of yesterday, Adam Schefter still was not showing him as a Jaguars or Chargers likely candidate, so I’m not sure what is going on there. Today’s shows haven’t been on yet, so maybe today he will add his name to the mix.

      Cowboys network is correct.

    Other teams may well interview Smitty too. But I still believe MOST of the new HC’s will come from the offense side of the ball. That’s just my gut feeling. I think Smitty returns to the Buccaneers for at least another year.
