Dirk Koetter’s job is on the line as his seat has been heating up for the past couple of seasons. At this point in the season, his seat is red hot, and his rear is stewing in his own failures.
The Bucs have been consistently bad, one free agent signing failure after another, one injury after another, and one loss after another. Those are not, in total, the head coaches fault, but the head coach is partially to blame for a lot of it and totally to blame for the rest.
By the way, the organization seems to be cursed and doomed to repeat every season with a sub .500 ending, why would anyone want to be the head coach of the Buccaneers?
Head coaching in the NFL is a very lucrative job, whether the team is a contender every year, or at the bottom of their division, in the NFL.
There is only a certain amount of teams in the NFL, and they all need head coaches. Everyone will be chomping at the bit for the chance to be at the helm of a professional football team. It isn’t just the money, which is nice, it’s the chance to prove to the world that you can make a difference and that you have the knowledge, the game plan to be a winner, and make your team and your city winners.
It’s not an easy job, but someone has to do it, and there are plenty of coaches out there that want to do it.
The Buccaneers have a quarterback that can be great, wide receivers that are great, a defense that isn’t too far away from being great, tight ends that are great, and a city that is more than great.
If Koetter is fired, I am sure there will be more than a handful of coaches knocking on the door.
