Longtime NFL coach Marty Schottenheimer will reportedly interview for the vacant Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coaching position, sources have told NFL.com.

Schottenheimer, 68, has 21 years of NFL head coaching experience, having last served as the head coach for the San Diego Chargers. Despite leading the team to a 14-2 record in 2006, Schottenheimer was abruptly fired in February of 2007 after disputes with the team's general manager.

Overall he has a 200-126-1 record as a coach split between the Chargers, Washington Redskins, Kansas City Chiefs, and Cleveland Browns. At each of his head coaching positions, he has left the franchise with at least a .500 or better record. The Buccaneers are also believed to be interested in former Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress, as well as Mike Sherman and Jerry Gray.
