Dominik OK with Bucs slow search

TAMPA—Mark Dominik believes in the healing powers of due diligence.
In his fourth year as GM of the Buccaneers, Dominik said he isn’t overly concerned that new head coach Greg Schiano is still in the process of completing his staff—with the scouting combine in Indianapolis looming ahead next week.
At this rate, there’s no certainty the Bucs will have a full complement of assistants when Dominik and Schiano attend their first combine together.
“In working with coach Schiano, one of the things that has made him so successful is he’s detailed and he’s organized,’’ said Dominik. “He’s making sure anyone who comes in this door is someone he feels extreme confidence in.’‘
Five days after hiring former Giants assistant Mike Sullivan as their offensive coordinator, the Bucs are still on the prowl for a defensive coordinator to implement the principles Schiano developed in 11 seasons as head coach at Rutgers.
The Bucs have strayed away from their Cover 2 roots since former defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin departed after the 2008 season, but Dominik said Tampa Bay’s defense will remain committed to a 4-3 alignment that has been a Bucs staple for two decades.
While Schiano continues to piece together his first pro staff, Dominik remains patient.
“Seeing the guys he’s bringing in this building, you can understand why coach Schiano is taking his time,’’ Dominik said.
