The Bucs are ready to move forward after Oregon coach Chip Kelly changed his mind and backed out of possibly becoming their next head coach.
Tampa has interviewed almost a dozen coaches and they are ready to make a second round of interviews.
Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Mike Sherman will be the first coach with a chance to make a second impression. The former coach of the Packers and Texans A & M was one of the first men to meet with the Bucs about their vacant head coaching position.
Stroud indicates there will be other “finalists” that meet with the Bucs for a second interview.
