The Bucs’ decision to hold their very own Fired Football Coaches Association convention in Tampa next week is bound to raise some eyebrows around the league.
And upset some Bucs fans.
One of the names on Tampa’s interview list, Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, is thrilled to get the opportunity.
“I’m gratified somebody noticed,” Phillips told John McLain of the Houston Chronicle. “I don’t want to leave Houston, but I want to be a head coach. “We’ll talk and see how much interest [the Bucs] have in me.”
There doesn’t appear to be a clear frontrunner in Tampa, so Phillips has a shot. Then again, they are talking with a lot of different people.
Texans fans will surely be rooting against Phillips having a good interview.
