    Re: Wade Phillips Interviewing For Tampa Bay's Head Coaching Job Friday Night



    For one, this is NOT a distraction on any level. As the articles state, it's an interview taking place at night. Kubiac / Phillips are not going to sacrifice practice time in order to make Phillips available for an interview that's going to last 2 hours at the most.

    Second, there is no way in hell a team like the Bucs are going to go all the way in the other direction and hire one of the oldest coaches in the league. He will be 65 when the season starts next season.

    It just has that college coach type of feel to it. That a guy can abandon his players, on the eve of the most important game of their lives, for his dream job at Notre Dame, after everything he said about trust, loyalty and commitment, to his players at Cincinnati.

That offense has been a machine all season. Now you are changing the coaching chemistry in the playoffs. We'll see what happens.
    The guys on NFLN were reporting that the league would block this until after the playoffs but I haven't seen any indication that they're doing that. Maybe teams should rent coaches for the playoffs and get someone from their division rival to help with preparation. Why not?

    As for Wade, IMHO he should've asked them to wait until their playoff run was over before the interview. I think most teams would respect that request and it just seems like the right thing to do.
