Jerry Gray Will Interview For Tampa Bay Buccaneers Head Coaching Job

After firing Raheem Morris immediately after their 4-12 2011 season ended, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers plan to interview Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray for the vacancy, according to the Tampa Bay Times. The Bucs haven't asked the Titans, who just narrowly missed the postseason, for permission to interview Gray yet, but it's standard practice in the league to grant such requests for assistants to move up to head coaching jobs.

Gray played for the Buccaneers in the early '90s — otherwise known as the Creamsicle days — and coached in Tennessee under former coach Jeff Fisher and former defensive coordinator and current Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz. The Titans defense finished 14th in the league at stopping the run and 24th against the pass in 2011. The Times also reported that the Titans will interview former Green Bay Packers and Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman.
