There was plenty of dot-connecting when the Buccaneers fired Lovie Smith last week that involved their not wanting to lose offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter.
They finally got around to interviewing him.
According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, the Bucs have completed the interview, which is just the third they’ve gotten in.
They’ve also talked to Cardinals offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin and Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott.
But while Koetter looked like an easy fit, the delay also makes you wonder if they’re trying to land an even bigger fish.
Koetter has also interviewed with the 49ers, and interest from the Dolphins preceded their decision to let Smith go.
