Buccaneers defensive coordinator Todd Bowles will be spending some time with NFC North teams before trying to stop the offensive attack of the NFC West champions.

According to multiple reports, Bowles will interview for head coaching jobs with the Vikings on Friday and the Bears on Saturday. The Bucs will then face the Rams at home in the divisional round of the playoffs on Sunday.

Bowles has already spoken to the Jaguars about their vacancy. No other teams have requested interviews with him at this point, but some teams are still compiling their interview lists so that could change.

Bowles has four years of head coaching experience, but his 24-40 record with the Jets is likely less of a draw to prospective employers than the work he’s done with Tampa’s defense over the last two seasons.

  1. You would think he would be more focused on playing the Rams in a few days, and wait to interview when season is over.

  2. That fact that he got 24 wins with the Jets should put him at the front of the line for Head Coach just about anywhere!

  3. Remember the teams that are interviewing now already had a prime candidate before the season ended. These interviews are about collecting intelligence on other teams and getting fresh ideas for their stale management.

  4. Some coaches are just better off staying coordinator level because they can’t manage both sides of the ball and all the personalities, plus other day-to-day activities.
