Reports: Bucs closing in on Schiano

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are close to a deal to make Rutgers coach Greg Schiano their next head coach.
I just spoke with a league source, who said the interest is “very legitimate,’’ but said no deal is done. But Mike Sherman, who had a second interview with the Bucs yesterday, reportedly is in Miami, interviewing for the Dolphins’ offensive coordinator job Thursday, so that lends even more credence to this story.
The Bucs had interviewed at least eight candidates with lengthy NFL experience. But hiring a college coach wouldn’t be totally out of character. The Bucs attempted to hire Oregon’s Chip Kelly before he reportedly pulled himself from consideration.
