Ten Candidates, Still No Buccaneers’ OC


The never-ending search for a Buccaneers’ offensive coordinator is up to ten now. And honestly, it seems there’s not a lot of interest in the position.

Tuesday the Bucs announced they met with and interviewed Seattle Seahawks’ quarterback coach Dave Canales. Canales has been with the Seahawks for over ten years. After starting with Seattle as a wide receivers coach, Canales has moved up to quarterbacks coach.

Via Pro Football Talk,

“Canales’ worked with Geno Smith in 2022 and Smith’s strong play this season may help Canales’ appeal to a team that’s unsettled at quarterback in the wake of Tom Brady’s retirement.”

At this point you have to wonder, is this job THAT unattractive? Are The Buccaneers doing due diligence, or is there not a lot of interest in working with Trask or Bowles? Let’s face it, if this team goes in the tank next season, house cleaning will surely follow. That may be the biggest obstacle for the Pewter Pirates. Honestly Bowles seems to be an albatross hanging around the Buccaneers neck.
