Fired Wake coach in front for QB position

Bucs first will interview Redskins' Robiske to coach quarterbacks.

HONOLULU -- Quarterback Shaun King could have a new position coach by the weekend.

The Bucs will interview former Washington Redskins interim coach Terry Robiske today for quarterbacks coach.

However, the Bucs could offer the job to former Wake Forest coach Jim Caldwell.

Caldwell, fired in November after leading the Demon Deacons to one winning season in eight, interviewed with Bucs coach Tony Dungy before Super Bowl XXXV.

At that time, Caldwell was a candidate for quarterbacks coach or offensive coordinator.

Last week the Bucs named quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen their offensive coordinator.

Christensen has never worked with Caldwell but has strong ties with the Atlantic Coast Conference, where he served as offensive coordinator at Clemson and quarterbacks coach at Maryland.

Before becoming the coach at Wake Forest, Caldwell helped develop quarterbacks, including the New York Giants' Kerry Collins, at Penn State.

Robiske served as receivers coach with the Redskins until he was appointed interim head coach when Norv Turner was fired with nearly a month left in the season.

Jeff Tedford, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Oregon, is no longer being considered for the job.

The Bucs have four positions to fill on the coaching staff: quarterbacks coach, offensive assistant, linebackers coach and defensive backs coach.
