Bucs coach Greg Schiano’s first choice for an offensive coordinator, Cardinals assistant John McNulty, was not allowed to interview for the job.
Another choice, Packers tight end coach Ben McAdoo, was similarly denied. Those two men weren’t allowed to meet with the Bucs by their NFL teams.
A third candidate is now no longer in the running. Virginia offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, mentioned by FOXSports.com as a candidate Tuesday, will stay at Virginia, according to Jerry Ratcliffe of the Charlottesville Daily Progress.
The only known coach considered for the job that is still in the running is Colts quarterbacks coach Ron Turner.
