TAMPA -

It has been nearly two weeks since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 2012 season came to an end, but coach Greg Schiano says he's still not ready to announce any staff changes.

"I am still in the process of evaluating everyone,'' Schiano said. "When we're ready to announce any changes, we'll do it all at once rather than just announce them one by one.''

Schiano, who guided the Bucs to a 7-9 record during his rookie season as an NFL head coach, began the offseason looking for a receivers coach to replace P.J. Fleck, who left to become head coach at Western Michigan University.

Schiano is also on the lookout for a quarterbacks coach to replace Ron Turner, who left the Bucs last week to take over as the head coach at Florida International University.

Schiano may eventually have to find a new offensive coordinator as well. Mike Sullivan, who orchestrated the NFL's ninth-ranked offense in 2012, is among a host of candidates being considered for the Chicago Bears head coach's job.

The inconsistent play of the Bucs defense, which ranked first against the run but last against the pass, could lead to some changes on that side of the ball, but Schiano would not discuss any such possibilities.
