The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been methodical in their search for a replacement for Raheem Morris.

The process continues as the Bucs continue to sift through potential candidates. According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, the club has requested permission to interview Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin for the job.

Philbin, who lost a son last week in an accidental drowning, has already interviewed with the Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins.

To date, the Bucs search has primarily focused on former head coaches, although now Tampa is branching out in its search.
