Schiano Not Worried About JobSeptember 25th, 2013
In his crowded, delayed daily news conference this afternoon, Bucs commander Greg Schiano spoke about nothing but franchise quarterback Josh Freeman getting the boot and the promotion of Mike Glennon to the starting gig.
Nothing, that is except one question: When Schiano was asked point blank if he was worried about his job security, Schiano, before he could blink, blurted out a firm one-word answer while looking directly into the questioner’s eyes.
It sort of stands to reason. Before announcing the benching of Freeman, Schiano, along with rock star general manager Mark Dominik, consulted with Team Glazer about the move, and Team Glazer was on board (apparently) with demoting Freeman.
If Team Glazer objected and the move was made any way, then Schiano would be in a world of hot water.
When Schiano mentioned it was an “organizational decision,” he means it. All the important parties both wearing suits and coaching whistles all agreed. The patience with Freeman to end his inconsistent ways had been used up.
