Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter is expected to interview for the same position this weekend with Tampa Bay, a source told FOX Sports.

Koetter is considered a strong candidate to replace Jeff Tedford, who left the Buccaneers to become head coach of the CFL's B.C. Lions. Koetter, 55, already has previous ties to Bucs offensive line coach George Warhop. Both were on the same Boston College coaching staff under Dan Henning in 1994 and 1995.

It also doesn't hurt Koetter that Atlanta scored 56 points against the Buccaneers in a Week 3 victory.

The Bucs, however, could have competition for Koetter's services. A source told FOX Sports that Koetter is held in high regard by two other head coaching candidates: Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and San Francisco defensive line coach Jim Tomsula.

Quinn and Tomsula both have already reportedly interviewed with the 49ers for the vacancy created when Jim Harbaugh left for the University of Michigan. Quinn is expected to speak with several other teams during Seattle's bye week before a second-round playoff game.
