    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will interview former Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress for their head coaching position on Monday, sources told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen.

    Houston Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer are also candidates, sources said, along with former Green Bay Packers and Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman, who interviewed last week.

    Better Tampa than Jacksonville. I don't want to face Phillip's D twice a year.

    Houston sports media and Mccain should've just kept their mouths shut...all their yapping got the attention of the other team's front offices. Wade wasn't going to put himself out there all by himself.

    Come on, taking our horrible defense and making it number 2 in the league is bound to get some attention, NBA owners did not make fortunes by being stupid and unattentive to their competition.

    Damn straight. So when Wade is coaching the Heat into the Finals next year, don't blame Pancakes.

    Wade Phillips on Tampa's request to interview him as they search for a new head coach: "It's appreciated by me & I believe I'm qualified."

    The dude is a great coordinator, average at best head coach.

    Go and flop like Buffalo, Denver, San Diego, Atlanta, Dallas etc.

    Owners have short memories.

    I'm aware but I'm just frustrated at the possibility of him leaving and the media didn't help. We saw how our D performed without him in the last 3 games of the regular season.

    First of all, the job is Brad Childress' if he wants it... the Bucs clearly do want experience, but are also going to want somebody with offensive prowress to help mold Freeman (who has tons of talent, but clearly suffered from a lack of good coaching this year).

    Wade is a good candidate for any team that already has a solid offensive mind in place... but there aren't many of those jobs out there.

    Wade Phillips: "I’m torn. I don’t want to leave Houston. I love it here. But I’d like to get a chance to be a head coach again."

    I'm getting a little tired of hearing this. He saw how the Texans honored his father at the game. He's in his mid 60's, time to spend his head coach "retirement" years in his hometown with a team that will be competing for Super Bowls for many years to come. Green Bay and New Orleans will be dominating the NFC for a few more years. Does Wade really want to take over a 4 win team that's years away from being a possible contender?

    The more I hear, the more I think he was brought in as insurance for Kubiak. Since there is no chance anymore to Garrett the head job, he wants a head job elsewhere. I can't blame him. I do question the sanity of anyone who wants to hire a retread who has been fired from 4-5 head jobs already.

    He would say "yes".

    You can't really argue with what he wants to do... all of these guys are extreme competitors, and once they've been at the top, they will try to do everything possible to stay there.

    The best case scenario for the Texans would be if Wade doesn't get any of the jobs, and ends up being our version of Dick Lebeau (former head coach who is happy to stay as a DC forever in Pittsburgh).

    This is probably his last great shot at a HC gig... if he doesn't get one this off-season, he's unlikely to get one after that.
