Why Coaches Move

January 19th, 2013

There has been some movement among Bucs coaches, some guessed at, some real. This is not uncommon within the NFL.

But for some Bucs fans, this is cause for alarm. That was one subject explored during a recent ESPN NFC South chat.

I feel its a little strange that 4 coaches have left the Bucs after 1 season of being on the staff. 2 got hired to Head Coaches but why would a 7-9 team get poached? Cooper left to be the same position somewhere else. Thoughts?

Two guys with some college background got head coaching jobs in college. On Cooper, somebody had to take the fall for the horrible pass defense, so i don’t think that one was poaching. On the D-line coach, I don’t know.

Well, let’s think about this a moment: P.J. Fleck, who Bucs receivers loved and who guided the group to the best results in Bucs history, got offered a head coaching gig at 32 years old. How is this a bad thing? Why would anyone try to pin this as a negative on the Bucs much less Greg Schiano? Geez. Is a guy not allowed to seek career advancement?

As for Ron Turner, Joe only wished he could have bought him a farewell beer from a local craft brewery. Turner’s resume is less than spectacular and Joe isn’t shedding tears that he got a head coaching gig in South Florida. Look, “this Joe” is from the cornfields of Illinois but one would have to be brain damaged to prefer a gig in Champaign than Miami.

And yes, the Bucs are not changing defensive line coaches.

So in Joe’s eyes, thus far, only one transaction among coaches has been made from the pen of Schiano, and to suggest a guy in charge of a unit that nearly set an NFL record for most yards allowed should have been granted job security, Joe believes said person has been ordering too many double-Captains.

There is no conspiracy here.

    Cut some slack….all of the Buc coaches were assembled at the last minute…very late in the process. Many from the college ranks. I am certain that most weren’t the first choice for Schiano.
    I think changing coaches is not necessarily a bad thing. It provides players to learn new techniques and forces them to put their best foot forward to impress their new coach. It also wipes the slate clean and gives them a chance to start anew.

    Really, its the only explanation. The sheep have to blame the coaches, right? Why else would all the Hall of famers and Pro-Bolwers that the Rock-star has been drafting are underperforming.

    NFL = Not For Long in playing and coaching. A good coach or player you have other opportunities. Some better some worse. WR Coach to Head Coach great opportunity. CB coach who coached a bad results group, goes to CB coach back in college good opportunity. QB coach to Head coach great opportunity.
