Barry Could Still Re-join Bucs

TAMPA – It looks like the Bucs are still in the running for linebackers coach Joe Barry.
Reports surfaced last Saturday suggesting Barry was headed to Seattle to coach the Seahawks linebackers under new coordinator Gus Bradley. It turns out, though, that the Seahawks have retained Zerick Rollins as their linebackers coach and Mike Phair as their assistant linebackers coach.
Barry coached Bucs linebackers from 2001 to 2006 before leaving Tampa Bay to run the Detroit Lions defense. He was fired following the Lions 0-16 season and has been linked to jobs here in Tampa and in Chicago, where his father-in-law, former Lions head coach Rod Marinelli, will be the new defensive line coach.
The Bears, however, have decided to keep former coordinator Bob Babich as their new linebackers coach and with head coach Lovie Smith looking to be more involved in running the offense it seems the chances of the Bucs landing Barry have increased.
The Bucs are also on the lookout for a new secondary coach to replace Raheem Morris, who took over as their defensive coordinator, and a new tight ends coach to replace Bob Casullo.
