Bucs offer job to Vikings' defensive line coach Dunbar

As Leslie Frazier works to fill out his coaching staff, the Minnesota Vikings could have another vacancy that needs to be filled.

According to a report in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, defensive line coach Karl Dunbar has been offered the same position with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Dunbar, who was hired by Brad Childress in Minnesota in 2006, is coming out of contract. He has six years of experience in the NFL, having coach one season with the Chicago Bears in 2004.

The Bucs apparently are seeking to replace Todd Wash. It will be interesting to see what happens with the coaching staff in Tampa. Offensive coordinator Greg Olson, promoted to the job just before the start of the 2009 season, has essentially been working with assistants hired for ousted coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski. Whether or not Tampa will seek some coaches who Olson is more familiar with remains to be seen.
