Newly hired Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter, is fully aware of the two-year death sentence that has been placed on Tampa coaches, lately and is not concerned with it one bit. Instead, he will focus on the task at hand, and do what it takes to break that two-year cycle. Good luck Dirk!
“The NFL is a brutal, results-driven business. Just ask the last three coaches of the Buccaneers, who combined for a dismal 36-76 record over seven years. Only Raheem Morris, producing the lone winning season in 2010, survived for a third try. Naturally, Dirk Koetter knows the clock has been ticking since Thursday but he isn’t concerned with it.”- “The clocks ticking everywhere on every coach in this league,” Koetter said. “I’m not paying attention to that, and that won’t be decided by me.” – “Instead, he’s paying attention to what he can decide and trusting his experience will lead him in the right direction.” – Reported by Zach Shapiro
