The Tampa Bay Buccaneers interviewed Ted Monachino for their defensive line coach opening, according to a published report.
Monachino, the defensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts the past two seasons, interviewed with the Buccaneers on Wednesday, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
The Buccaneers are seeking a replacement for Jay Hayes, who was dismissed from the team over the weekend. Tampa Bay surrendered a league-worst 378.1 yards per game last season.
Prior to joining the Colts, Monachino spent six seasons as the linebackers coach with the Baltimore Ravens. He also was the defensive line coach with the Jacksonville Jaguars for four seasons (2006-09).
