With former offensive coordinator Dave Canales gone to the Carolina Panthers, the hunt is on for a new offensive coordinator.
The Bucs have a few interesting routes they could go for his replacement, and they’ve already started. The team began its interview requests on Jan. 26, interviewing two new candidates to see which coordinator will be Tampa Bay’s third in as many years.
We at Bucs Wire have created this OC tracker so you can follow along with all the action. We’ll be updating this list with every new interview as they come, and we’ve also compiled some offensive stats for each offensive candidate — check them out below:
The #Buccaneers will interview #Chargers offensive coordinator Kellen Moore for their OC job on Monday, sources say. Moore interviews with the #Browns today. The #Eagles have talked to him via virtual meeting.

The Buccaneers plan to interview former Eagles OC Brian Johnson for their vacant offensive coordinator position, sources say. The Bucs had interest last year, but it was clear he would get promoted in Philly. Johnson is also a candidate for the Browns OC job.
