Dick Vitale “Crushed” By Chip Kelly’s DecisionJanuary 23rd, 2012
Basketball Hall of Famer, Bucs season ticket holder and hardcore sportsaholic Dick Vitale has a keen interest in who Team Glazer and Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik select to replace jettisoned Bucs coach Raheem Morris.
So for the second time since the Bucs’ hierarchy launched their search for a new Bucs coach, Vitale, the pride of Sarasota, has taken to Twitter to express his outraged.
This time, like many Bucs fans, Vitale is deflated over Oregon coach Chip Kelly turning down the Bucs offer to coach the Bucs.
@DickieV: I am crushed what happened to the Kelly deal with the Bucs? Don’t want a re-thread! HELP US
Joe will somewhat echo Vitale’s sentiments in that Team Glazer should forget about a retread coach so long as his name is not Schottenheimer, who has a documented track record for turning around teams.
Get Tom Clements down here (or Dallas), pronto, for a second interview. Get it done!
