Dirk Koetter to return as Bucs coach in 2018

Dirk Koetter to return as Bucs coach in 2018

Dirk Koetter will return to coach the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next year, despite the team's losing record this season.

It was the best season Gruden had with the Buccaneers, as he won double-digit games over the regular just once after that (11-5, 2005).

Koetter went 9-7 in his first year as head coach but has struggled this year, winning just four games heading into the final game of the season on Sunday. That's debatable, from our perspective, as Winston seems like the same mistake-prone passer he was when he came out of Florida State a few years back. The Buccaneers are now mired in their second five-game losing streak of the season.

All that talk about Jon Gruden leaving the "Monday Night Football" booth to return to coach the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? It'll be interesting to see what happens with the Bucs "D" under coordinator Mike Smith after it's been one of the NFL's more disappointing units, ranked last in sack percentage, 31st in yardage and 24th in points allowed.




Why did Tampa Bay keep Koetter? .

ESPN and the Tampa Bay Times were among the media outlets reporting the news Friday evening. "Everybody has their different characteristics, but at the end of the day we all love each other".
