Former Rams Coach Linehan to Interview for Bucs OC

By JC De La Torre

Bucs Head Coach Raheem Morris is off to the Senior Bowl. While looking at prospective draft picks perform, Morris will also be busy filling out his coaching staff. Among candiates for the vacant offensive coordinator position is former Rams Head Coach Scott Linehan.

Morris fired six assistants on Monday, including offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Bill Muir, ssistant offensive line coach George Yarno, offensive assistant Jay Gruden (brother of Jon), defensive quality control coaches Johnny Cox and Ejiro Evero and strength and conditioning coach Mike Morris.

The St. Pete Times is reporting that Chiefs offensive coordinator Chan Gailey, former Browns offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski and Bucs quarterbacks coach Greg Olson, the Rams' offensive coordinator in 2006-07 are also in the running for the gig.

Morris hopes to have the majority of the staff hired before leaving the Senior Bowl but will not rush the decisions.
