Buccaneers to Talk to Panthers OC Rob Chudzinski Tuesday

The Bucs will talk to Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski on Tuesday about their head coaching job. Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer spoke with the team Monday, but he’s currently the favorite to be the new head coach for the Dolphins coaching job.

Chudzinski has been a popular man this offseason, as he was also a candidate for coaching openings with the Jags and Rams.

The Panthers offense had a solid season in 2011, as they set a franchise record with 6,237 yards of total offense in 2011, which ranked seventh in the NFL just one season removed from a 32nd ranking in 2010.

Another reason why Chudzinski is high on the list of teams is his work with rookie and first overall pick Cam Newton. He had a record-setting performance with 4,051 passing yards, 706 yards rushing and 35 total touchdowns, including 14 on the ground.

It would be an interesting choice for the Bucs to go with Chud, as it could open the door for the offense, which was pretty bad in 2011, to take a huge step forward. It also could help the game of Josh Freeman, who took some steps backwards in 2011.
