The laundry list of candidates to coach the Buccaneers includes former Vikings coach Brad Childress. And since Childress currently is in the Tampa area coaching one of the teams that will play in the East-West Shrine Game, the folks at JoeBucsFan.com asked him a few questions about his prospects for getting the gig.
The primary concern relating to the Bucs job arises from the status of the roster (young) and the quality of the division in which the Bucs play (high). Childress isn’t concerned.
“There is only 32 head coaching jobs in the National Football League,” Childress said. “I have always said it’s important to work with good people. All indications are the Glazers are great folks, so it’s a good job.”
The fact that no other team currently is sniffing around Childress makes it an even better job.
And that’s not a knock on the man known loosely as Chilly. (Though we’ve knocked him a time or two in the past.) These are highly-coveted jobs. Either you have one, or you don’t. Childress doesn’t. And he wants one.
Even with the Saints, Falcons, and Panthers to contend with and a front office that isn’t exactly free spending, it’s still an NFL head-coaching job.
