Bucs search for Coaches in the Senior Bowl.

Coach Jon Gruden coaching Carnell Williams at last years Senior Bowl.

The Buccaneer staff is in Mobile, Ala. Last year the Bucs Coaching staff coached the Senior Bowl and discovered Cadillac Williams. This year the Bucs are like most other teams, they spectators hoping to find the seniors they want for the NFL draft. However, the Bucs have another job at this years Senior Bowl, they are interviewing college coaches for their coaching vacancy.
Senior Bowl practices was on Monday afternoon, but Bucs head coach Jon Gruden and defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and GM Bruce Allen stayed behind at the Riverview Plaza Hotel to conduct interviews with several coaching candidates.

According to Bruce Allen, “The Senior Bowl has always been a great time to talk to a number of coaches.” “We have a lot of interest from guys that want to come to Tampa. There’s so much instability league-wise that the pool of candidates is enormous. It’s just a matter of going through and making the right choices.”

I found it interesting that there are over 220 coaches looking for work in the past three weeks from all the hiring and firing that has happened in the NFL.
Hopefully the Bucs will have luck in the Senior Bowl and hire some great defensive coaches or at least coaches that Monte Kiffin can train.

It is also reported that the Bucs are scouting the offensive line talent at this years Senior Bowl. As it is believed they will use their 1st round pick on a linemen.
