“They Feel Their Hand Is Forced”December 27th, 2011
Speaking with confidence that Raheem Morris will coach his last game as a Buccaneer on Sunday, Tampa Tribune beat writer eye-RAH! Kaufman dared to speak for Team Glazer during a radio interview this afternoon.
Kaufman told Rock Riley on WDAE-AM 620 that Team Glazer wants Raheem to return but they just can’t do it.
“At this point, [the Glazers] feel their hand is forced,” Kaufman said. “They’re not competitive. They’re the worst team in football right now. Nobody can argue that.”
Kaufman went on to say that the notion that Team Glazer won’t invest heavily in a new coach is ludicrous, citing their track record, including paying Chucky’s massive salary for the last three seasons while he plays talking head. “It’s not so easy to say cheap, cheap, cheap, they won’t spend,” Kaufman said.
Kaufman said he believes Team Glazer will target a high-profile guy to be the Bucs next head coach and Mark Dominik could become a “casualty of war” if they hired a guy like Bill Cowher that might want complete control.
