Dick Vitale Outraged By Mike Sherman TalksJanuary 9th, 2012
This is what it has come to for the Bucs. It isn’t just that Team Glazer and Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik are being scoffed at by local talking heads over the known interviewees to replace jettisoned Bucs coach Raheem Morris. It is now national scorn.
First it was Deadspin, then it was PTI mocking if not laughing at who the Bucs are looking at for their new head coach. Well now, Dick Vitale has piled on.
The ESPN college basketball icon and Tampa Bay area resident took to Twitter to lambaste the talk of Mike Sherman being one of the leading candidates as the next Bucs coach.
@DickieV: BUCS may hire Mike Sherman. y is he on their radar? They say offensive genius.25-25 @Tex A&M fired by Green Bay that doesn’t = GENIUS!
Later, Vitale used Twitter to please with almost-Bucs coach Steve Mariucci to leave the NFL Network desk to run the Bucs.
@DickieV: @SteveMariucci Comeback to coaching – my BUCS NEED U! U can always get back into tv.
Joe will have more on “Mooch” tomorrow. He recently was in St. Petersburg and was kind enough to talk to Joe about the Bucs.
