Pat Dooley of the Gainesville Sun reports that University of Florida defensive coordinator Dan Quinn recently turned down an offer regarding the same role with the Tampa Bay Bucs.

While rumors have swirled that Bucs rookie coach Greg Schiano is targeting former North Carolina head coach Butch Davis for defensive coordinator, it appears Quinn was Schiano’s first choice. The Gators are returning 10-of-11 starters on defense, and Quinn is apparently comfortable in his current position.

Quinn has NFL experience, as he coached the Seahawks’ defensive line in 2010-2011 following stops with the 49ers, Jets, and Dolphins. He is listed as both a defensive coordinator and defensive line coach at Florida.

  1. We can’t even hire the college guys!!!!! And we have Josh Freeman and a talented young DLine!!!!!

  2. Apparently everyone has figured out what Bucs fans have know for years. The Glazers are milking the Bucs to run their kick ball team on the other side of the pond. After years of running the team on the cheap they are getting just what they deserve, and Buc fans continue to suffer…

  3. I understand that Schiano is entertaining the idea of bringing several of his former assistants along from Rutgers. That can’t be good, can it?

  4. The Bucs have again sunk to the bottom on the NFL ledger. I guessing that Schiano won’t even be able to get local kids as ball boys, ..even if he paid them.

    Mark it down, the Bucs won’t win more that 6 games over the next two (2) years and Schiano will be coaching Tulsa!

    Funny, that’s exactly what the “experts” said about the Bucs heading into the 2010 season, and then they went 10-6 and everyone blamed the “easy” schedule.

    Stick to mopping floors Nostradamus.
