The Tampa Bay Buccaneers officially asked the Kansas City Chiefs for permission to interview personnel man Chris Ballard for the Bucs opening at general manager. However, a source indicated that the Chiefs may turn down the request because of questions over whether Ballard will have full authority as a general manager.
When Tampa Bay recently hired coach Lovie Smith, he was giving authority over the 53-man roster. As a result, it’s unclear whether the job the Bucs are offering is technically a promotion.
