As the Army Black Knights begin to hit their head coaching search hard, their journey has led them to a familiar face, and one with current National Football League ties.
The Albany Times-Herald has confirmed that current Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan will interview with the school on Friday in regards to filling the currently vacant position.
Sullivan has direct ties to the military academy. He’s a former Black Knights player as well as a former assistant coach, the beginning of a journey that eventually led him to coaching at the highest level in the game.
Tampa Bay has struggled mightily on offense this season, so it was probably unlikely that Sullivan would return next season anyway to the team after this year. Although, he would indeed be making his life even harder, taking over an Army program that has had only one winning season since 1996.
In addition to Sullivan interviewing on Friday, Army is also interested in Georgia Southern head coach Jeff Monken and Ohio State co-offensive coordinator Ed Warinner for the vacant slot.
