Mike Sherman appears to be the front runner for the job.
The NFL Network's Jason LaCanfora says that Sherman is close to landing the job with the Buccaneers. This would provide Sherman with a landing spot after being fired by Texas A&M.
The Bucs want someone that will instill some discipline to a young squad that collapsed under the weight of expectations this season. They were thought to be a playoff contender but finished 4-12 and in last place in the NFC South.
Sherman coached the Packers to three NFC North titles but was fired after a 4-12 campaign in 2005.
