David Haugh of 670 The Score in Chicago is reporting that the Buccaneers have interest in Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly.
Kelly, 57, has coached the Irish since 2010. He has been linked in the past to NFL openings, interviewing with the Eagles in 2013, when they hired Oregon coach Chip Kelly. It’s unclear whether he’s interested in coaching the Bucs.
Haugh says the Bucs may be willing to offer upwards of $10 million per year to Kelly.
Tampa also has been linked to Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.
The decision in 2012 to hire Rutgers coach Greg Schiano became an experiment that ended badly with a split locker room and unhappy players.
