From the league's runs two of them riverfront. This season we're Wisconsin sports fan's column should all the build Mikey show. Here's your home most know Michael. And the course take its all way. Man what a day. We are broadcasting live out here at the 170. US open championship where Erin hills in Erin Wisconsin. And as the day has gone on the court she's gotten firmer the wind his dried it out even more. They cut it a little bit more this morning the greens have gotten a little bit faster. And some of the names that you normally would see on Saturday and so on they are not going to be here. Job let's see here Bubba Watson he's not all night. It is indeed not on the edges they gonna happen. Unless he drives agreed in whole wine on the eighteenth they gonna happen and that's his last hole he's five over Jason Day is plus two. He is nine over for the term and he is going home. Rory McIlroy. He is plus Tuesday eight over for the tournament he is going home. A lot of these guys not going to make it in the via Saturday and Sunday around because they just have not been able to think it is golf course out. And you know it's injured Jason Day just toss his putter through his putter and there was golf bag he was he's not happy with his round at all in their rounds are coming to an end. Meanwhile you have some other names that are getting ready to go off and now one of those names is Ricky Fowler who is still atop the leaderboard Paul Casey. Has put together a heck of a day today he is one under today seven under for the tournament and he recovered from eighteen arable. Terrible start he started on ten with a par he has a burying eleven. And then he goes bogey par triple bogey. Bogey par and anyone on our run of five straight birdies to bringing back. 21 under and he's played some decent golf since and he could probably go for a couple more and giving self a little bit of a cushion. Atop the leader or retire with Ricky Fowler but that's the weight stand Ricky Fowler and a Paul Casey right now atop the leaderboard. You're at the 170 US open championship and Rickie Fowler is not even seen the golf course yet today so. Nobody is make the charge that we thought they would make. But it is certainly going to be uninteresting date tomorrow as some of the bigger names in golf not going to be here. Broadcasting live out our fairways of Woodside mobile support studio and also our friends from road America sponsorship thanks to them as well. While we're going to be there next weekend for the rise in IndyCar Series go to road America dot count for all the ticketing information. And now let's bring even now let's go to all Paul in New York green and gold analyst talks of Packers football why don't men. Phil doing well I'll be out the course. The course is fantastic I mean the skies have cleared it's really nice and sunny a little bit of breeze not nearly as much a group reasons we had a earlier today it is really calmed down so. You would assume the guys are going on the afternoon this is almost picturesque perfect conditions for them. To score and score well even though the courses dried out mitigate some role with the greens have not softened up that's the only concern for some of these par threes you don't stick him. You to be a little bit of trouble but other than that it's been good so. My question to you was going up north Packers are wrapping up the mini camp and I guess what do you take away from the mini camp if you're Mike McCarthy. Well you hope that he's he Lee for the vote to have Butler Butler and out early. Certain guys down up I don't comment about when he clocked in two runs and mom who you're pot spot. We're good or you assume you repeat from Brooklyn clerk he should be encourage you to note the Oakmont you order. Was trampled on the theory young age. One week between 21 year old. Included are still talking about you witness. To milk one of the youngest player. In county clerk work with Bob we first developed because you know last year. And that was especially. Her courtroom buddy look at certainly when you just don't. A lot of help body quite yet but they'll have to develop them. He doesn't look you know when crowd it. Early on most likely he will not eaten. Each step for the defense that lined up Luke yeah yeah yeah it was to Scotland and scrambled. We were. On perhaps becoming an adult and could well in the slot or the start this look like Kirk halt this week. Why didn't trust development book and tells you where they only. There are so that point just keep that that it a long look at that was. Pretty cool work it out you eat it looked Butler matching up off. Wanted them into eager veteran who want to see earned on. Pop include both currently and ultimately of course the Robert Byrd is. Content from local leadership responsibility in that room. You bring up ran a column wanna go to him because Mike McCarthy it into made it that. Got to get Randall Cobb more more involved the offensive coaches say we got to get Randall Cobb morn ball. You we've seen this before where they say well we're gonna concentrate on the run and they're really isn't that much concentration on the run. Now whether circumstances dictate that or messages blown smoke up your proverbial behind. Randall Cobb there's there's. What to make of that because to say you're gonna make Randall Cobb more focus I think he's I think that's I don't that you can't. I think Randall Cobb is what he is. And the only way he becomes more of focus is if Martellus Bennett. Is more of a focus and that opens things up for Randall Cobb in that seem over the middle. Well. He snaps that you combined. What was what Ron accent at another cup I think until he didn't have a couple involved there and any special. Particularly. On UE. Well you know eat. Out unbelievable clubhouse right now with it and sit between. We cleared between panicking but we can't top the leader in the clubhouse but apart from jobs who who is important that cropped corner built where we talked about that. You know it's logical to get hurt. Recorder on you're liable to offense equipment that rent. And I think we're confident right now. You're great golf ball because. All ball screen went public people kind of outnumber. Don't forget the winners were computer each other. We're department throughout my mom prominent but I'll. Most scouts think Montgomery took a bigger stronger rent the crap out. The current aren't you wanna try to keep the ball to explode through a little hop on who you recruit and you're at the wire sleeper. It might have been took the lead we let our punt returner on every play and we punt a few players you can. You don't want to work your goat in final with good looking to play. Yeah that. Probably won't us out of the backfield or while Doug brook what are well. To be possible. Early but look out. I'm not mean pop the ball more might be more about how much are eaten Arctic tern. I don't know are we let. It only goal I'm not not built up. It did you steam because the going to the wide receiver position. There dip of the young guys are the ones that are impressing people and opening odds are gonna hear more from my Clemens coming up the next segment. Well I'd. Court they possibly. Unseat Trevor Davis and Jeff Janice. It took you maybe just haven't been panned out the way they thought to Trevor Davis he left less of an opportunity but nevertheless a healthy scratch numerous times last year. Maybe these guys just. They did not get it done in so they went with speed they won't that lyricism and maybe they found different guys to go with speed on that outside wide receiver position that are gonna get separation. What are you speaking of interesting talent but he can block session. But the current look up -- I decree this sentence from wide receiver of the but this past her children out but all we're gonna Apatow all you want it to. You know highly healing caught yet in that likes him. You don't hate the risk. And took. Aren't you looking at the front abruptly in. You don't look at it at that want to play against the Loomis Graham Elkhart quiet. The real problem. It went can't Koch a chance because of equipment out. It would probably would have done without essential. And you know try to critique about the things I don't respect that. And be a bit but you Arctic that you got back in but who wouldn't want also he. And he hit a local company clearly means well leave it out here that brokered. Lot more out. Of the wondrous but as well you think the key. Equal locals opted to almost it's hard to. But the special moment when he saw the point that you. Lot of talent and of course we'll want to compete you know wont wont hurt the little guys heartbeat department's special team. Where they're both not just one receiver caught up in the Beijing can't describe it we know there's when he got there it was good but we're. You correctly great crew to one of the rest of those guys. The depth chart but. I think the recruitment. And all that Mike McCartney partner often you're excited over Wear out my early work of a career. They real quick I wanted to ask you about the comments regarding a guy like herb waters. Comparing him to drum on Williams and I found that interest you because you got Rollins in Randall at that corner position Josh Hawkins is another guy. They bring in Kevin King you bring in divine house in the offseason and yet it's her waters is the guy that's getting all the comments in turning heads. Arm do you think that now if indeed her waters is that quote from on Williams type of player is the last year street free agent who had a chance to learn. It are do we go from a secondary that is the weak position of weakness too because of growth. Healing process draft and now a guy that's emerged is this now an area of depth. But a I mean Italy while also Ian are you a substantial question. Mark's own you only really. Whom have been dying and aren't but what you built lightly upon how. Again I know some people collect it correctly because I got cut by. But he and Jack and they'll look courses are you aren't purple and Morton who lives. I'll look on technical switched Q wouldn't recruit vector is upon how will that. All the rest of what it Carter. The best guy at returning from your score. With that it was critical wood and an olive with a little bit so. Out. 78. I'll Lauren incorrectly in type of who went so low but you know big question mark I don't bet grew. Went a little Rollins are you question mark and are guys who they have a really good turnaround in. Aren't going to be the 27 you look what you want to implement 2060. I too had a you know now you're at it in the what are the top of the order but luckily quick vote goes to court that I prepared. But that particular part of the club coordinate sports so I look at it. We're talking about. The on the radar. Oh I think he could. To put water on the lead on a record in which it at carton but that didn't stop for our attention at that says. And you know sticking with a bunch of junk got. And it's not quite yet you know can't or you could arrogance to go to competent but irk the book reports about what we're. We all had a series very good packer for all I want to you know he's the kind of person it still. Also what it appears that so. Probably could open now who almost got another guy and it. His position and it would at all that are critical for her to. Good stuff as always Paul appreciated have a good week yeah I'll talk again on Monday okay. I'd like to regulate today go that's Pawlenty or green or analyst joining us for a couple of minutes on the Schneider or challenged on her carry average right now you were cart. They treat you fair eighty plus years immediate and call me 144 prior to go to Schneider jobs dot com. Talk more about this for the guys it's actually been there I checked it out a close and personal my Clements medical serious radio joining us next on the go Michael show. Order the marsh field including bill Michael sports talk network. There were were there for their football thing. And so good don't follow through on the field in this question achieved your big guys I was syrup for the blues. I really liked it. The classroom. Transition to the field for your normal work number word our doesn't go on a roll a good job what the most years so. That's that's that's the fault of the we all know this because you. You don't really motivated as of them really rolled almost two good games. Many yellows the words of Mike McCarthy. And you know there are a lot of via optimism I guessed optimism reigned supreme all the time when your you know here this time a year. We all know that. So while laughter wings you don't actually pans out but Mike McCarthy's and it look a lot of the young guys it really been impressive. But athleticism that he says quote he jumps out the field at you. So you that's what they were shooting for this offseason and it seems at least as of right now Mike McCarthy's happy. With what they accumulated we're gonna talk with my Clements medical series radio just one moment is Porsche program he brought about a Marshal clinic don't just live shine. At the march took like tonight we've got my Ron walked out of the waterfront helps feed the hungry. I'm going to be able to do this the walk portion at the run porch with a walk fortune but I'm going to be able to do a pain free because of Marshall Clement because and he's been fixed up. I'm feeling great no problems there going to be heading around the summer fest grounds for polish fest tonight. And it's all thanks it for the most part two on the Marshall clinic for the job that are my doctor doctor outs Ekene did thanks to them. Where they Patricio like you know like Fran and out like an insurance Carter and number. And all you have to do is to find a more information about the martial clinic. Go Marshall clinic dot org it's Marshall clinic dot org don't just live. Shy and they are the official out to writer yours truly in the go Michaels sports talk networked in studio back in our flagship station in Milwaukee. My Clemens mental serious radio so Mike does the athletic schism jump off the jump off the field edges. Well I guess so you know and I think it was an honest assessment from the coach was tested as anything you can get in the overall personality the team in. Sometimes you look at those answers and say you it's pretty much the same thing every year where it's a little different every year whatever and a this is a guy that's watching all the practice tape. And so if that's his take I'll go along with that so far. What I usually can do in an OT or mini camp is C a couple of perimeter players are secondary players the jump off and I. After gone through all of these things now I'm not shows sure of Weis he is a star. But as you've already eluded to in this half hour. Maybe one of the coaches gave up a name air force so the first thing your look and four is. Offense just. The offense in general not Aaron Rodgers has looked tremendous. I mean tremendous he's looked as hot as he was. In the win over the Cowboys. Down on Dallas but Brett Hundley has struggled. I talked Alex and held about that he's a CI you know he missed almost pre season games he hasn't been a live football game in. Except for a couple snaps toward the end the games last year. And almost a year and a half so yeah he's a little off. A little rusty if you will and maybe that's was we were seeing with some of these OTA sessions will look bad. And just two weeks ago McCarthy said yet were were way behind an offense. But McCarthy explained don't forget were installing a playbook here over the OTAs and and here's where you hit the wall regardless who's running offense. We're watching video this morning there's always things that go long column in the early stages of development of an offense. When you have new players. It's just not quite right so you know governments wrong robber. Actually picked me definitely got a they get pressure so we had six or seven plays just in front its practice and policy quarterback. Panel that you may view ago and it was a terrible play I view it is the most wonderful player of the practice was as kitten everybody ready to. The play when things break down it's hopeful but some games played that's a reality of the preceding games at a higher rate in these these four practices. Do your role or Royals personnel and the and it's it's helpful our young players are ready for training camp and his staff for helping to root for pre season games. So McCarthy likes the adversity. For Brett Hundley or even Rodgers or Joseph Callahan these quarterbacks. Now was do this now and OTAs have have plays break down and three or four plays what do you do with the football he doesn't mind them. Arm right now what offensively speaking of Mike I know that you know you'd mentioned that you're installing a offensive playbook. You had adversity for our Brett Conley. But it is Aaron Rodgers alluded to you're talking about a lot of people. That are looking at this offense and saying this can be pass happy this. You know don't worry about the running back situation it's nice to have a compliment there. But for the most part with the addition of Martellus Bennett you think you got speed on the outside wide receiver position Jordy Nelson Randall Cobb needs to be more active. I mean it seems like this is going to be all set up to just winging the ball all over the place yeah. And the other thing is this. With the changing of football and things you can do when you go from fifteen weeks to nine weeks of OTAs in recent years with the CBA. Restrictions. The coaches got to say how can I get the most out of the sessions what are the things we need to work on. Another thing is that you had a horrible performance from your secondary last year particularly in the NFC championship game against Julio Jones and the Falcons so. McCarthy came out of that experience on that blow out in a lamb by saint. We may not run the football told July we got to work on the secondary we got to throw the kitchen sick at the secondary and try and figure out who's gonna start. And what our problems are back in there and evaluate these guys these defensive backs as early as possible. I talked to Aaron Rodgers about that he's it would you know remember this is mini camps and OTA's. But there's other things that the offense had to work on so here's what. Yearns answer. Yeah I think. That is just hard to run the football and opt outs on because. You're not able to at the same aiming points. Near ground on the pads cold you know options Lyman. The night in the same time the movement it's it's really either of the year it is from a slant and the defense favor because sort of supple bull rush without drugs on Thornton's line. And on the flip side you know we got to work on our passing and we've we've got to be. Excellent in the passing and we ran some weapons which changed. Potentially some approach. You're wanting to probably gets more two tight end sets out there are so we we've got to work on on plays we haven't maybe. I had in the plan or at least in our minds the last couple years since that's also I'm sure are wired her pass tomorrow morning near tears. So. Aaron Rodgers I know that you it said boy he looks like you know. Go back to week channel last year when something flipped and he became the guided through the team on his back and he was is unbelievably sharp. You said in the OTA's and mini camps he's been that kind of sharp. Do the coaches think he's been that kind of sharp as well. They do a talk now extend tell he's the quarterback coach former NFL quarterback himself. And Alex is a pretty squared is straight shooter particularly neon season I asked and I think aaron's looked in these OT eight. Great authorities have played an excellent spring. I think he's in better shape he's been in. I mean he's muscular him he's he's doing really well in the weight room the dining hall shows. The dining hall even the dime back I'll bill Agassi in the dining hall. Busy being competitive in the dining halls like throwing you know what the dinner rolls. You know right inside the coffee mugs that people aren't even dunking anymore or discipline errant toss it and yeah yeah. You know it was really cool was it I think was Lance Kendrick to tell me we're talking about you know playing with a quarterback Aaron Rodgers and he said. He's even I'll play this Fauria and Monday show. He said this guy so good it was you're doing occur and over the middle rock crossing route. He said he can take it off the football. I said you mean like a changeup reasoned yeah I mean he could see you stand there and he's in full. Our motion but that he could take a little bit off the ball when he just knows he's got as that but you know fifteen yards do you measure crisis over the middle of the field that's a goodies. He is speaking cross you over the middle of feel the guy that they're gonna utilized we will assume a lot. And you keep your fingers crossed that there's not an injury after the build up to Martellus Bennett's presence on this team by. More so I think his personality. You know you would do you and I talk about this while ago. Is this going to matches have been a team that's very much stand in line don't make waves if anybody makes waves are usually pretty much get rid of them. This is a guy that's very outspoken how's he been received. Well you know that's one of the things you want to ask about like it from his teammates because we thought that perhaps this packers' locker room needed that kind of personality maybe there and add them on sister Michael Finley I don't know. But they they you know or or more vocal leadership. Of course Charles Woodson was the right vocal leadership. But there's somebody else is just kind keeps a loose key and keeps people. Gets the different departments whether it's offensive line or the defense get these guys together. So I asked David Bakhtiar was it interesting cat and himself when he won the left tackle job as a rookie and for the next couple years he didn't talk much and eventually one day David said look. I'm ADHD. I have a hard time communicating. And this guy has grown so much and you're just you're so proud of what Bakhtiar is done consistently last tackles a football player toll ask him. What about Martellus Bennett Z weren't on yet. Having care to like that is what you need you need someone on your team like that on that and that's a tough role as much as it. Looks on it's that's tough one to bring an everyday into that comes also consequences I think Marty's a guy who understands when he doesn't very and it's at that's also personality. You don't get to choose it catches you can fare pretty well and I'm excited to see what we can do with him off. Bakhtiar he's a sharp dude. And you wonder if he's really the leader of that offensive line. Maybe the most guys and he's a step up after TJ Lang is gone or Josh didn't I said he's had no it's still Brian blog is Rome. Am still guerra to Bryan I know the Bryant seems like a you know just easy gone down on the farm guy from Iowa. But he said blog is as our leader he is Smart he's he's he's. Intense in the classroom when we're getting our work done. And we follow blog is lead. On the it's interesting because you use the in a lot of sense I think most Packers fans who would you agree that or hold their cross their fingers that. He does sustain an injury this year and it's not to say that were expecting it but he has had some injury problems and he's getting older as far as his career goes. You can't open yourself man you know sprigs at will back up hopefully can take over. If indeed if and when he's called upon. But you know bowl locker he's a veteran guy yes where he's also the guy that you know boy your hope when he doesn't get hurt because one injury on the offensive line. That will be problematic to injuries three entries on an offensive line I think he'll be devastating. So that's why they dread drafted Jason springs at tackle there's another guy that they're talking about in camp six foot 5315. Pounds a rookie. They picked up from Canada the university of Manitoba. His name is Jeff Gray and McCarthy at some pretty I praise for him yesterday just on how well he's taken up the playbook so. And help shed maybe Doby another candidate to look for when they put the pads on in training camp another kid that is just jumps out. Personality. All over the field is your second pick Josh. Josh Jones. The rookie that they picked up from North Carolina State and you talk to him about learning this playbook. I mean that's the hardest part of have been an NFL come from college to the NFL has the playbook. As as it manic as a learning curve you know I mean it's like first Tom. You know going going to. Calculus class but I'm pretty sure you don't need some some studying when you know you can do is you know kind of assuming. You know first day class youth says homer to god or not and you got to study you know now. So build now here we come back and the problem resist. When you play Seattle week one and Russell Wilson scrambled all the field. What defensive backs are gonna keep up with those Seattle Seahawks receiving corps in week two when your plan. Matt Ryan and Julio Jones my comments and do what what corners do you have the keep keep up with those guys just with their speed. And you had these breakdowns last year Sam Shields a loss right away he was your speed guy. To Mary's Randall with the groin injury had to have surgery. He's a first former first round pick they're probably gonna play in the nickel at the star position as has he grown and so he asked him. What did you do in your off season to get ready for your third year. Got healthy. And when. And I'm in it is always too good to be out. What's the next six weeks or four trick. Nonstop trying. Did you have anything from this team it yourself. Have your that that was the year you would no. What is you know. That none who nobody. OK. RIR. I. Another awkward moment with to Marius Randall going into year three yeah they are now you don't have to be the best talker in the world. You know how long it took for Nick Collins to come around but at some point you've got to. Vocalize to the media to your teammates. To your opponents to the world as though who you are is a football player and I don't know what's going on with this guy. I mean I don't get it I don't get it he's he's confident his physical ability. By it. So you've got Davone how's a guy that eventually even keeper on because you still had Sam Shields he didn't take anybody's job when he went to Jacksonville. You've got Kevin. Kevin King who you just got into camp and he's the six foot three guy with some speed. Maybe the you're gonna put that rookie up against Julio Jones but on the other side it's going to be run Davone Haas. Well who else is going to be easily talk to Joseph Whitney hand and you got anybody fast they can break through that could be maybe the next Sam Shields story and here's what. Joseph went the defensive back coach says well here's a look at that so far OTA's and mini camp. I believe with you know bring it house fact that this in the work team can be. On the mayors and she's she's had a really good its tail how's that how's his camp has. And the best out of everybody so the wrong done in in her waters aghast that home. You know purpose. Been really good and into this situation and so I'm excited about what we can't be now we have to get there. You know I knew going into last year how I knew I didn't think would be what it was. But I knew arm there was some growing pains that we have to work through it and think it will be. As hard as it was and they know never spit on the go down their respect after gassed or injured reserve and and have those type injuries but all. I'm expecting much better outs odds seem good practices before and there's groups in this this group here has had those I. So that's packers' offense back Joseph ways seeing Q when Rollins has improved okay you're not talk much about to Marius Randall and but. He sang hey you know guys flash in forming is herb waters this is a receiver they had in camp out of Miami undrafted two years ago. They were so deep at wide receiver they said. But we don't want to do this guy. Hate Joseph would do you want isn't absolutely all taken bring him thome and that first week then last year when. Shields went down for the season it turned out in Jacksonville. That that's when they crossed over her from offense over to defense and made him defensive back in he was flashing. This spring showing off that speed from Miami it's like the Sam Shields story too except. Something happened they won't tell us what the injury is. And from what we heard from coach with their he hopes he gets him back in time for trained him. Well it real quick my before what you go going back to her waters and diocese course Nepal limit. And the the question is if her waters is developing. Randall's coming in now again he doesn't sound like a guy that believes that he needs to prove himself which Lester was bad year in a good year this first year last year was not a good year. So but if he looks better. And he is healthy. Rollins and company in her waters in the edition. Has this gone from a position of weakness to a position of strength and depth you whores Izzo are you just a giant still a giant question mark back there in your mind right. Where it's a giant question aren't because you don't have the experience and you're still looking for at least one other guy outside of Kevin King. Who's got the speed and so far from what I saw and since king couldn't come to camp and to this week nobody could cover Jordy Nelson. Down the sideline. Good stuff is always Michael thanks for everything and we'll chat again next week okay thanks bill are but it jocular they don't like Clemens and we went a little bit long but I wanted to get all of it in for him like Clemens was up at the Packers mini camp he's been the OTA's. And it is kind of give me a little bit of depth there and some insight. And always appreciated when we come back have you been updated to what's going on your 170 US open your leader is now teed off.

Add to the the summer that's grounds for the opening of polish fest in the B units run walk to polish for the polish fast. A couple of things. First of all occasion in here. Minnesota Vikings wide receiver they picked up Michael Floyd remember. And now he is scheduled for each show cause hearing later this month some reports have surfaced that he is violated the terms of his house arrest by drinking. Remember this the guy was hammered. Hammered the documents from the court obtained by. Numerous sources. Floyd was contacted on June 12 after of you out a hall monitoring reports indicated he missed the test is well is the presence of alcohol. In several tests. Quote we are where the situation and revolving Michael Floyd. And looking into the matter that like he said we are still gathering facts in it's usually at the usual remarkable. For a team when their players in trouble. And this is not only something that could end up costing him as far as his NFL career. But this could end up costing him freedom because the indeed. Was told he is not allowed to have drink alcohol whatever. Man oh man he he go back to jail for this after the arrest he was immediately let go by the Cardinals finish the sixteenth season with the Patriots. Signed a one your one point four million dollar deal with the Vikings. The house arrest sentence. Was transfer from Arizona to Minnesota last month. Allowing him to participate in vikings' offseason programs one term of the house arrest was though he does not drink. And he's subject to random alcohol screenings according to TMZ which first reported the violations. He's come out now in vehemently denied it said that that's not true. He has not been drinking and alcohol president so we receive mechanical declined to comment on the reports today. But Michael Floyd at least apparently for the time being. Back in some hot water. Due to alcohol consumption meanwhile our own back yard. John Horst is the new GM will be announced as the new GM of the Milwaukee Bucks at least that's what reports are saying after there was some disagreement. Among ownership and Jason Kidd and company as they could not come to terms with Jason panic. But nevertheless they chose John horse no horse. Is he's been with the team for quite some time. Its now like he's new OK he was so brought on by John Hammond back in 2000 in the eight. And John Hammond was hired as the Milwaukee Bucks GM for the three years prior worst and worked as the Detroit Pistons basketball operations staff under him and and since arriving in Milwaukee. He's been a big time member the Bucs front office. As it's grown over time he's been involved in team decisions that you small including attending the NBA draft combine. In certain years being a part of the team's draft room conversations as well. Also has these solid and it was reported on the bucks contract figures in salary cap situation and is well respected within the organization by many. Adrian which are ski of the vertical says the Bucs were close to hiring him and looks like that's going to happen. But also that there was a quote contentious ownership disagreement. During this search. Owner mark last three and another top minority owner along with Jason Kidd all were backing Zandt. But other ownership. While you can only assume it's wet seasons. In other team decision makers did not want Justin's and it. They won it porch so looks like horse is going to be the guy.
