The field of potential candidates to be the next head coach of the Washington Redskins thinned on New Year’s day.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were finalizing a deal with Lovie Smith, the former Chicago Bears head coach who directed the Bucs’ linebackers from 1996 to 2000.

London Fletcher liked the move.

Fletcher played for Smith in 2001, when the Rams had the No. 3 defense in the NFL and advanced to their second Super Bowl in three years.

We could be hearing Fletcher opine more in the offseason as he looks to become a member of the media. After lacing up the cleats for the last time, the linebacker said he will look into a broadcasting career.

If his Twitter account is an accurate indication, Fletcher’s not considering coaching as a career move just yet.

As for Smith, Tampa offers a well-deserved opportunity.

In his list of options for Washington’s vacancy, CSN reporter Tarik El-Bashir called Smith “probably the best coach not employed.”

In other coaching news, the Houston Texans reportedly locked up Bill O’Brien, so the Penn State head coach and former Patriots assistant is eliminated from Redskins’ radar as well.
