When Bruce Arians hired Todd Bowles and Harold Goodwin as his original coordinators, he said he wanted both to eventually get head coaching jobs. Bowles got his job last year, earning the spot with the Jets. Goodwin is probably still a little further away, but at least his first interview is coming.
ESPN’s Josina Anderson tweeted Friday morning that Goodwin will interview for the vacant Buccaneers job. It makes a ton of sense. Bucs GM Jason Licht worked in the Cardinals front office and was here in 2013 for Goodwin’s first season. Licht knows Arians and GM Steve Keim well and both would endorse Goodwin. And Goodwin is a minority, and his interview would satisfy the Rooney rule. UPDATE: The Buccaneers have confirmed this will take place.
Goodwin would be a longshot to get the job. Current Bucs OC Dirk Koetter is considered the favorite. But you never know who you meet that be able to convince once you have the interview, and if nothing else, it’s a good rep for interviews down the road.
