New York Giants 2012 Offseason: QB Coach Mike Sullivan Interviewing With Tampa Bay Buccaneers, According To Report

His work with Eli Manning has not gone unnoticed. New York Giants quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan is interviewing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' vacant offensive coordinator position, reports ESPN's Rachel Nichols.

Sullivan was promoted to Giants quarterbacks coach in 2010 after previously serving as the team's wide receivers coach. Under Sullivan's tutelage, Manning posted his best season in 2011, with 4,933 passing yards and 29 touchdowns compared to 16 interceptions. During the Giants' Super Bowl run, Manning was even better, throwing for 1,219 yards, nine touchdowns and just one interception during New York's four consecutive postseason wins.

Tampa Bay fired head coach Raheem Morris and replaced him with former Rutgers coach Greg Schiano, hoping to build the franchise back to respectability after fading to 4-12 this season.
