The Bucs' approach of going back to the good 'ol days could have gone straight to the source of the franchise's ultimate success.

LaConfara also says the team tried calling Bill Cowher but was told he is happy with his television work at CBS.

And he adds the Bucs may want to hire Tony Dungy in some capacity if Dungy were interested.
