Before hiring Schiano, Tampa Bay talked with Oregon head coach Chip Kelly but those talks collapsed early Monday.
The Bucs also talked to former NFL head coaches Brad Childress and Marty Schottenheimer; Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski; Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray; Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer; Green Bay quarterbacks coach Tom Clements; and former Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, who accepted the head coaching opening with the Dolphins.
An 11th known candidate, ex-Dallas Cowboys coach and current Houston defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, canceled a scheduled interview with the Bucs that would have taken place while the Texans were in the playoffs.
