Bill Parcells announced today that he will not accept the Bucs' head coaching job.

I was under the impression that the Bucs had all but signed the contract, and Parcells was ready to join the team. However, now that this was revealed, I think it was even stupider for Tampa to fire Dungy. If they really feel like the firing was necessary for such a good coach, they should have at least been sure they had things squared away with Parcells first.

I don't even know who some other head coaching candidates are...I guess if it comes down to it, they could always promote defensive coordinater Monty Kiffin, but I think that would go against everything they were hoping to accomplish by bringing in Parcells.

I'm all for Mora only as long as he promises to use the term "diddly-poo" in every other press conference.

There, I feel better now.

I can't stand Mora, they showed that lame "playoffs" line on Sportscenter 7 billion times on Sportscenter when they could've been showing perfectly good basketball highlights.

What bout Dennis Green as a candidate?

From, some candidates:

Dennis Green: The former Minnesota Vikings coach has allegedly gone fishing, preparing for a role in a syndicated fishing program, but might be coaxed back to the sideline for a situation as promising as the Bucs. Sources told last week Green would have considered coming back if either of the Bay Area coaching jobs became vacant. We didn't ask if that included the Tampa Bay area.

Monte Kiffin: The current Bucs defensive coordinator was in line to maintain that key role on Parcells' staff and could provide continuity to a listing Buccaneers ship in need of stability. Age is a factor, though, and the team would have to hire a proven replacement.

Marvin Lewis: A hot commodity this time a year ago, the Baltimore Ravens' defensive boss has seen his star fall a bit this year. Should the Ravens lose this weekend, he might be interviewed by the Carolina Panthers, but is a long shot there. Tampa Bay might do just as well to keep Kiffin.

Jim Mora: Still viewed in some quarters as a fundamentally sound coach, but he's 66 years old and might have been around the block too many times for the Bucs brass' liking. Probably won't merit much more than a fleeting thought.

Nick Saban: Perhaps the best suited of the college crowd, having rebuilt the program at LSU and earned himself a handsome raise and security. Saban has previous NFL experience, having served as defensive coordinator of the old Cleveland Browns. He has been mentioned each of the last few years as a likely candidate to move back to the pro game. Notable is that Saban has the same agent as Parcells, but Tampa Bay officials would be wise not to hold a grudge because he is one of the few "brand name" coaches left on the market.

Marty Schottenheimer: Would bring with him a degree of respect, but might have to win over some veterans, as was the case in Washington. Has emerged now as the leading candidate for the San Diego Chargers opening. Team is said to be considering a three-year offer of $1.2 million, $1.3 million and $1.5 million. How could San Diego land him at just $4 million total? Because owner Dan Snyder in Washington is on the hook for the difference between the $7.5 million he owes Schottenheimer for the next three years and the value of whatever deal he lands next.

George Seifert: His legacy was unfortunately tarnished by three non-winning seasons with the Carolina Panthers. The guy didn't simply forget how to coach, but he might be forgotten now by teams seeking a sideline boss since the Panthers were so bad under his stewardship.

Lovie Smith: The former Tampa Bay linebackers coach is certainly familiar with Buccaneers personnel and has only been gone one year. He transformed the porous St. Louis defense into a top five unit and connects well to the players. He's going to be a head coach somewhere in the next three seasons. If you don't get him now, you might not get him later.

Bob Stoops: Has rebuffed all attempts to pry him away from Oklahoma, including the recent attempt by the University of Florida. He has name recognition in the state, but no NFL experience. Stoops doesn't appear all that interested yet in jumping to the pro game.

Norv Turner: If the Chargers offensive coordinator loses out to Schottenheimer on the San Diego head coach job, he could be looking for another opportunity. Turner's demeanor might not quite fit with the Tampa Bay defense but, given the talent on hand, it's a good bet he would get the offense headed in the right direction.

None of these guys really get me excited. Green is a good/great coach, but I worry about how much (or how little, I guess I should say) control he could maintain over a team with Keyshawn, Warren Sapp, and several others who want to be THE leader on this team.

I actually kinda like the Bucs, but man, this is amusing as all get out.

-- No Parcells.
-- No Dungy.
-- No Spurrier.

And Rick McKay is trying to get another job (Atlanta).

I hope they get an offensive coach or at least one that will not depend on the plodding rushing attack and dink passes to Mr. Give Me the Damn Ball.

Whatever happened to the old Green Bay Offensive Cord. Sherman Lewis.
The Bucs could wind up very screwed from all this. I'm not a big Bucs fan, but what in the hell was Parcells thinking? What a fucking idiot.

I guess Parcells has done everything he ever wanted to do in the business. Two Super Bowl wins with the Giants, another Super Bowl berth with the Patriots.

Plus, given the way that Dungy was treated by the Bucs after leading them back to the playoffs for the first time in ages, can you blame Parcells for not wanting to go to Tampa?

The Buccaneers might now very well be screwed when it comes to hiring a new head coach.

They should have done this before now. If you has seen Volek play any this preseason he has been somewhat awful. Maybe this will motivate him to do better or he'll still suck and lose the job.
