Bucs offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan reportedly interviews for the Army head coaching position Friday.
Sullivan graduated from West Point in 1989. He has strong ties to the Black Knights after two assistant coaching stints with the team.
Sullivan worked with defensive backs and linebackers. No official comments come from either team right now as the interview process takes its course.
Here is what Sullivan had to say:
"There is an appropriate time and place for all those type of answers to those questions, and I think right now, especially given where we're at offensively, and some of the challenges that we have and what faces us this Sunday in St. Louis, if we could, I would like to just center our questions and focus on the Rams. Certainly, I'm sure there are plenty of questions you guys have for the offense and on some of the issues that we've had which are well documented, so hit me with your best shot."
Bucs head coach Greg Schiano addresses potential turnover on his coaching staff Friday afternoon, but also declines comment on the Army interview, specifically.
"Well, I'm never going to comment when we have -- that's part of the business, I'm never going to comment when that stuff does come up or doesn't come up. I will comment on the fact that when you have good coaches, as happened last year and has happened some that guys are never made aware of because fellows tell them 'I'm not interested,' but that's part of the business. Mike is a heck of a football coach and if that's something that comes up and there's something to report, I will report it but our focus is really on the St. Louis Rams and what we've got to do to win that game so I'm just going to keep it at that, that'll be kind of the way we handle these things."
Should Mike Sullivan be hired by Army, Bucs quarterbacks coach John McNulty would be a leading candidate to become Tampa Bay's next offensive coordinator.
