Buccaneers fans all across the country have known for some time now that Dirk Koetter wasn’t going to make it past this season. Well, after a 32-31 loss to the Falcons, the Glazers have decided to fire him sooner rather than later.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter was the first to report the firing.

Again this comes as no surprise. Since taking over in 2016, Koetter has to lead the Bucs to a 19-29 record with only one winning season. The past two seasons have brought high expectations for the Bucs. They were supposed to finally take that next step in their development and compete for the playoffs. Instead, the team fell flat and has posted a losing record the past two seasons, including a 5-11 mark this year.

The Bucs have a talented roster, especially on offense. What lost Koetter his job was his inconsistency to manage the offense and his ability to put even an average-level of defense on the field. Since 2016, the Bucs have fielded a top-10 offense twice, but a bottom-10 defense all three seasons.

Ever since the firing of Jon Gruden in 2008, Tampa have gone through four head coaches. The Bucs haven’t reached the playoffs since Gruden’s final season and have had a losing season eight times. Hopefully, the Glazers can finally find the right guy.
