CHICAGO, Jan. 12 (UPI) -- Greg Olson, fired as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' offensive coordinator, will interview for a coaching job with the Chicago Bears, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The team announced interviews have been scheduled with four candidates to fill out Lovie Smith's coaching staff. An NFL source said Olson, who served as quarterbacks coach for the Bears in 2003, will interview this week for the passing game/quarterbacks coach vacancy, the Tribune reported Thursday.

Previously revealed candidates for the position include former Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, former Seahawks offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates and University of Miami offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch.

Tampa Bay Online said Olson lost his job with the Bucs when Raheem Morris was ousted as head coach Jan. 2. Morris hooked on as Washington's secondary coach Wednesday.
