Tedford Takes Leave Of Absence

September 23rd, 2014

jeff tedford 0911

NFL Network is reporting the Buccaneers’ offensive coordinator will leave the team.

Insider reporter Ian Rapoport delivered the news.

This is a disaster for the Bucs. What a major, additional setback to the new regime.

Joe wishes Tedford well as he recovers from coronary artery stents and, possibly, more.

For Joe, this news makes an even greater case that Josh McCown should never return as starter and Mike Glennon should take the command for the remainder of this lost season. Let Glennon develop and audition under McCown and quarterbacks coach turned offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo.

Also, Joe hopes Lovie Smith will tap his contacts and get another offensive mind in the mix quickly. An experienced quarterbacks coach might be a fantastic move.

  1. ShutTheBucUp Says:

    Figured that might be the end result. Clearly something isn’t right with Tedford. Not sure what the hell we do from here.

  2. FanOfBucs Says:

    Best of luck to Tedford.

    A Bucs life is always a thrill.

  3. Patrick in VA Says:

    Can’t argue with it. Mike Shanehan is unemployed. Let’s let Tedford get healthy and Shanny can turn Rainey into a stud

  4. robert9 Says:

    best of luck. smart move.

  5. Louis Friend Says:

    Revising my prediction about this season: 2-14 now.

  6. robert9 Says:

    what sucks is this will just give lovie an excuse. frasier will/should be next. that defense is awful!

  7. BoJim Says:

    Thoughts and prayers.

  8. Louis Friend Says:

    God hates Bucs fans.

    Get well soon Tedford.

    Tedford was to return today and again was a no show. I don’t portend to know what his condition is, but when his absence starts to materially affect the Buc’s offensive effectiveness, other alternatives must be considered.

    With all due respect and empathy, Jeff Tedford should be given the appropriate time to recover from whatever condition he has. If his recovery is extended or is subject to relapses or secondary side effects, He should be given the old Jimmy Raye title of SR. Offensive Assistant and have him mentor a new young OC who comes from a system similar to what Tedford wants to do here at the Bucs.

    Scott Frost is a young successful OC at Oregon who plays the style of offense that resembles what I can make of the new Bucs offense. He is ready to move to the next level and would make the perfect student for Tedford and could bring that Oregon high octane offense to the Bucs.

  10. chef paul Says:

    This season can already go f*ck itself! Did I miss a news story from Aug 2013 that said the entire city of Tampa got together and broke every mirror in town?

  11. Clintro Says:

    Wow…. we are screwed.

    I think this is the right move, Tedford needs to get healthy, but damn the timing sucks.

    Get Better Soon Tedford, we want to see more of that play calling from the Buffalo game!!!

  12. Buc Neckid Says:

    Joe called this weeks ago
    Said that it might be a “big” deal
    It is
    This Offense needed Tedford
    Arroyo is not doing much with it
    Best wishes to Tedford and his speedy recovery
    Whether or not he ever returns to the BUCS

  13. RCH Says:

    Welp it looks like we are in the running for Mariota now.

  14. AnotherJ Says:

    2-14 here we come…

  15. AnotherJ Says:

    Get Mike Martz, or Jagodzinski on the horn!

  16. lightningbuc Says:

    Tedford saw enough of this circle jerk to know he wanted nothing further to do with it.

  17. Tom Edrington Says:

    Made this call a while back, he has to avoid stressful situations and as the Bucs remain winless, it will be tough for the healthy folks to breathe the air over there at One Buc.

    It will get more and more stressful as he weeks go by.

    He may never be able to come back.

    Coaching = Stress.

    Fact of life.

  18. Patrick in VA Says:

    Didn’t they say that McCown had a huge impact on the way they were crafting the offense when he got there? If that’s the case, how is it a long walk to get from what Tedford would do to what Arroyo (who has studied under Tedford for a while) and McCown were putting out there? Seems like they would’ve had at least 80% of the offense down and it would just be a matter of plucking plays out at the appropriate times. I feel like maybe Lovie doesn’t trust either McCown or Arroyo and hasn’t let them utilize the Tedford playbook

  19. Love and Warrick Dunn Says:

    Stick a fork in it.

    This will be a season long preseason. Find out who’s for real and who’s not. I’d love to see if Glennon is or is not the guy, but, it’s a little harder with no OC. But, at least put him out there.

    It might be prudent to search for a new OC. It ain’t worth dying over.

  20. Joseph Mamma Says:

    This is the jagozinski situation all over again basically

  21. Mathius Says:

    Hope tedford gets well soon.

    Hope i dont have to hear lovie apologist mention tedfords absecents is the reason for McCowns poor play

  22. billy buckaroo Says:

    I hope the plays go from the OC direct to the QB now
    And not thru anyone else to approve or override.
    Too many cooks in the offense kitchen so far to get it right.

    Take this as unfortunate but also an opportunity Mr. Arroyo.

  23. CB Buc Says:

    Who didn’t see this coming?
    Built in excuse for Lovie…

    A total mess.

    Can we just clean this out, hire an energetic young coach and start over in 2015?

  24. The Buc Realist Says:


    is it too late to have a revised worst 20 Bucs from the last 10 years by the bye week???



  25. biff barker Says:

    It’s a disaster no doubt but I wish Coach Tedford a full recovery.

  26. andres Says:

    Get well soon, rest up. Look forward to what you do with Mariota.

  27. mpmalloy Says:

    This is actually good honest news.
    No lies. No Bullshit. No attempted manipulation of the facts.
    I hope Tedford can return at some point.
    But this is by far the best thing for him to disconnect
    from the source of his stress.

  28. biff barker Says:

    AnotherJ Says:

    Get Mike Martz, or Jagodzinski on the horn!

    Jags? Hell No!

    Martz is an interesting candidate though.

  29. oldfart44 Says:

    Something isn’t right here. He had two stents put in; not a bypass. Strange.

  30. Bill T Says:

    Poor guy was probably feeling even more pressure to get back since the Bucs have performed so poorly.

  31. Scott Says:

    I pray that he get’s well soon, but it isn’t going to make much different who replaces him unless the new guy can also coach the defense and special teams.

  32. Ur mom Says:

    Welcome to Tampa Mr Mariota

  33. Scott Says:


  34. BUCTROOPER Says:

    Once again… Prepping for the draft in September.

    Remember the good old days when you only worried about PLAYER health?

    Just tank it. Go for WINSTON!!

  35. Patrick in VA Says:

    @Bill – At this point, it doesn’t matter what the actual medical issue is. point is, he’s not coming back for a while for some medical reason. What it is is between him and his doctors

  36. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    There is nothing more important than a person’s health. My prayers are with Jeff Tedford and his family….hoping for a full recovery.

  37. bucsQcCity Says:

    Get well Mr. Tedford. There’s nothing more important than your health and quality of life. Come back next year when we’ll have fixed the QB and OL issues.

    In the meantime let’s cut Glennon loose. Let him show us what he can do.

  38. ShutTheBucUp Says:

    How about Chud? He had a good offense in Carolina. Then again, he also had a decent QB to work with.

  39. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    An entire offseason of preparation is now moot. Wow. Hope he recovers, but in the meantime the Bucs are in a world of hurt. This dead horse of a season just got kicked. In the balls.

  40. DB55 Says:

    Well well well, didn’t see that coming, not!! Been saying it all along just retire mr tedford your family needs you more than we do.

    Now with his health being taken care of let me rip some things up. The BUCS played so bad they gave this man a heart attck. Lovie defending mclown prob cuased more stress illustrated by the now famous facepalms tedford would do in the booths.

    Martin is not hurt, truly believe he was benched by lovie so he could bring in Rainey. And after all that garbage talk about Vjax not separating n needing to catch more balls I think tedford has seen the light. This is not the place for him. He prob held out this long so Lovies son could get his 10%.

    Godspeed my friend

  41. RastaMon Says:

    Weeks ago when the Tedford story broke… posted a link to what his condition was…as I recall…it as a ENT issue…saliavry gland/throat medical surgery…which would explain why he can’t “call” plays….there are nerve /vocal cord issues with surgery

  42. Architek Says:

    My thoughts and prayers are with the Tedford family.

    Jeff if you and or your publicists read’s this please put God and family first.

    We will welcome you back with the 1st overall pick and hopefully we get a real QB for you upon your return.

    If you can’t return just know that God has a plan for your life.

  43. BirdDoggers Says:

    This outcome was looking more possible by the day. There’s no sense in rushing back if he’s not feeling well. The demanding, high stress job of a coordinator doesn’t mix well with heart issues. Hopefully he can make a full recovery and either come back to the team or enjoy retirement.

    The Lovie hiring was supposed to bring a sense of stability this team has lacked for many years. So far, it’s business as usual. Changing the uniforms and going back the Dungy roots haven’t helped so far. Tedfords situation was unforeseen and can’t be blamed on Lovie, but it just seems like this team can’t get it right. It’s early on in the Lovie era, but improvement has to be made soon.

  44. unbelievable Says:

    Ladies and gentlemen, introducing your 2014 Tampa Bay [deleted for vulgarity]

    But seriously, get healthy Tedford! Wishing u the best. Not sure what this team is going to do in the meantime…

  45. Buccfan37 Says:

    The hyped up offensive genius coordinator that never was. Stay as far away from this quagmire as you can Tedford.

  46. DB55 Says:

    Keep practicing in the FL sun and we’ll keep getting more people hurt. You know who plays around with the FL sun? Tourist. Locals know better than that. First thing tourist/visitor want to do when they land is go drinking on the beach. By 8pm they’re passed out with a migrane, that’s called dehydration sir. Next 2 days they struggle to move.

    Only a tourist would decide to practice at 2pm in the FL heat.

    Lovies next job will be sitting next to herm Edwards, bc this is exactly what this situation reminds me of Edwards meltdown with the jets. Stay tuned folks it’s about to get bumpy.

  47. Patrick in VA Says:

    @DB55 – Every team is beat up. Chicago has a ton of injuries. Carolina has a practice squad running back. Remember our first two games against second and third stringers? Injuries. It’s not because they practice in the sun. Try again.

  48. NewTampaChris Says:

    I wish Tedford well. But yikes, this franchise continues to be a dumpster fire. And to think, I had been looking forward to this season.

  49. ToesOnTheLine Says:

    Wow MRSA and a starting QB meltdown in week 3 last year, a week 3 meltdown in Atlanta and OC health issues/leave of absence this year…only the Buccaneers can be this “lucky” by week 3! Get well coach Tedford and hopefully you can get out of Tampa and have a successful and healthy coaching career somewhere else in the NFL. This town is obviously jinxed and a place where coaches go only when no better offers exist 🙁

  50. DallasBuc Says:

    The sht pile he was given to work with probably caused his heart condition and the nose dive this team has taken to start the season would cause anyone in their right mind to get away and no longer be associated with this stinkhole operation.

  51. STFU Sapp Says:

    Marty Schottenheimer. . . PLEASE!

    Or Martz

  52. Greg Says:

    Well, maybe we get Scott Frost and Mariotta as a package deal next year!

  53. me Says:

    Josh Mc is not good. glennon is worse

    You live in VA Patrick? You’re prepping for cold next week right? STFU cuz you know not what you speak. Yes teams have injuries but none have 90% of their starters injured. Martin, Simms, James, McCown, mankins, Vjax, safarian jenkins, clayborn, Johnson, mccoy, foster, Jenkins, Tedford. This doesn’t even include non-starters that are hurt.

  55. DallasBuc Says:


  56. ElioT Says:

    Oh well…

    The “Speed in Space” bull**** wouldn’t have worked any way as this team has NO FREAKING SPEED!!!!

    What a disastrous start to the Lovie regime. Not even out of September and the season has already imploded. #CURSED

    Fell so blessed to be raised a Bucs fan. SMH!!!

    Go Yucs!!!

  57. "that guy" Says:

    this offense was so terrible it gave him a heart attack. oc resigned, now its lovies turn.

  58. ElioT Says:

    They’d even screw up going 0-16 as the Jags or Raiders would likely match the effort and win the tie breaker for 1st overall pick. Hell, even if they got the first overall pick, they’d most likely select the wrong guy, and we’d be watching “what could have been” over and over… and over.


  59. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    No one who isn’t named Matt Millen survives 0-16. So if that happens you can welcome yet another coaching change, an offseason of hope, and then reality setting in and Bucs fans getting their hopes switch-beaten like Adrian Peterson’s kid after refusing to eat his carrots.

  60. Patrick in VA Says:

    @DB55 – Clearly I just picked the Bucs arbitrarily as a team to follow because I like to be miserable every football season. No chance that I am from the Tampa area and know exactly what the weather is like there.

    I had to move because the Tampa economy didn’t suit my financial needs. You may be loving life living off your waffle house grill master salary but some of us need a bit more.

    So, let’s take your line of thinking a bit further and say that because the Bucs are practicing in the FL sun then it stands to reason that Miami should be at 100% of their starter’s on the injured list, ya know, since they’re closer to the equator and it gets warmer there. Right? How’s that working out?

    We were destroyed by injuries last year as well and that’s with Schiano’s crazy two water bottle rule and keeping the AC at certain temps. So blaming Lovie is just asinine.

  61. robert9 Says:

    the 1st statement from his next job interview…… man, you sure as hell lucked out getting the hell out of tampa last year. lol

    speedy recovery sir.

    lovie will be to coaches what jfro was to QB’s

  62. OAR Says:

    Breaking news: This just in….. the sun causes dumpster fires.
    Also, on the medial front…… heart conditions are caused by $h!t piles and stinkhole operations!

  63. OAR Says:

    More news coming in regularly on the INC (Inane News Channel) stay tuned…..

  64. csidedave Says:

    DB55 that’s right. Everyone knows that tourists should be told to stay out of the midday sun because you might break your hand, fracture your wrist, sprain an ankle or hurt your knee. Makes a ton of sense.

  65. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    He should have been replaced a long time ago, like, before the season went up in smokes in week 3. Arroyo is in over his head and should not be asked to do what he is doing for the rest of the season.

    We set sail on a boat full of holes that sunk very quickly. There is always the draft…Right?

  66. Patrick in VA Says:

    Maybe one of their changes that are coming is that they will start crowd sourcing offensive play calls from fans at home games via the team’s app. Can’t do any worse and it might be a draw to get people to go to the games.

  67. buc4lyfe Says:

    Wish you only health and life tedford but Finally….. Thank you for doing what they’ve been doing for the players even when it’s just a scratch.. But no I won’t say it, I won’t say that this is yet another lovie pick that has yet to see Acton on the field or do anything for this team, guess he should have been given a physical too. Was this kind of pair gonna resolve itself in a couple weeks? Yes this is bad but according to what lovie had been doing it’s going even better than he planned. With a top 15 defense and a bad offense or qb situation, there was no way were going to find a franchise qb as a middle of the pack team so why not sabotage your first session and go draft one so your full go for the next 15 years, More than enough to make us relevant again, get the best qb and no one will remember this season when your winning

  68. road warrior Says:

    AnotherJ Says:

    2-14 you are very optimistic.

  69. Couch Fan Says:

    Feel bad for the guy personally but so sick of this crap as a Bucs fan. There is always next year I suppose.

  70. Patrick in VA Says:

    @Couch Fan – They should have changed our team name with the uniforms to the Tampa Bay Little Orphan Annies. We’re always hoping that the sun will come out tomorrow.

  71. csidedave Says:

    So 2 of the last 4 offensive coordinators have not been able to call a single regular season play? Maybe there is something to the curse theory after all.

    Is it you Simeon? Or you Gramatica? Who ever it is, we are so sorry!

  72. DB55 Says:

    Patrick in VA

    Miami practices indoors. It’s called the bubble, look it up. #genius

    As for my salary, the FL economy hasn’t effected my family as much as yours obviously. We’re actually preparing for a royal carribean cruise (that’s the expensive one not the cheap carnival cruises that leave out of tampa) 7 day carribean cruise in a suite. You know Patrick, education does wonders for your salary. Get an education, you’ll make more money without having to move like a gypsy and you’ll sound like you have a clue when responding on JBF.

  73. BFFL Says:

    No point in sacrificing your health for this pathetic team

  74. james west Says:

    although unfortunate for bucs fans, this is going to be tedfords out. after witnessing this LSD lovie smith debacle, I wouldn’t have the heart to go on either. good luck tedford

  75. Patrick in VA Says:

    @DB55 – Congratulations to you and your family on being able to take a vacation. Make sure not to spend too much time topside, you might break an ankle.

    So you’re saying that the Bucs practicing outside is leading to their injuries? Well, let’s look at the Washington team that’s right down the road from me. As a reminder, that’s up here where we’re getting ready for winter, as you said. They have 17 people on their injured list and are going to have a hard time putting together a starting lineup for this upcoming week. And they practice in an indoor facility as well.

    Keep on sluggin’ though. You’re bound to land on a good point eventually.

  76. DB55 Says:

    Eventually I might. I’ll keep trying!!

  77. IK Says:

    Sad for Tedford. This is very discouraging that he is so ill that he can no longer work. All jokes aside (regarding the state of our qb’s, o-line, etc.), Mr. Tedford’s health is likely in peril.
    Wishing him the best.
    Heart disease is merciless.

  78. Mike in Orlando Says:

    Sure it’s not MRSA? What next.

  79. Buc1987 Says:

    “They have 17 people on their injured list”

    Don’t worry man Glennon will carry this team on his back until everyone is healthy. (that’s sarcasm for the clueless people out there)

    BUT fans will come out in support of him and cite the injuries and saying anything different won’t matter. The injuries excuse will not be allowed to be called if Glennon comes in and stinks it up, I suppose. Although the excuses will follow with this next loss. That will have the Glennon bashers and supporters all worked up into a frenzy. I’m sure Joe already has something typed up already, anticipating the loss. I know I’m anticipating another Atlanta-like beat down.

    So let me say this then I support Glennon because that’s all the Bucs currently have. Yes you can throw OUT Kafka too for those of you Kafka fools out there. He’s been in the league for 4 years now. He’s worse than McCown.

    So I say for 2014. Long live the MGM. It’s not that it matters anyways anymore. It’s a throw your hands up in there and say oh well ef it. Once again though. It’s screw Glennon time. Thrown in with a garbage line up, but we’ll see. Should be atleast more fun than watching the trash that is McClown.

  80. TBSwarm Says:

    Here is how I see it. We are gonna have a top 5 pick again this year, get some quality players and DEPTH!

  81. Jim Walker Says:

    My daddy used to say when he was unlucky it was “snake bit”. It seems the Bucs are snake bit.

  82. Jim Walker Says:

    At the end of this year I would cut Johnson, Bowers, Clayborne, and Jenkins. They are terrible and cannot stay on the field.

  83. PhillyBuc Says:

    First the players give up against ATL and now the coaches. Could this season possibly start any worse? Look for another epic beat down against Pittsburgh. Ugh

  84. sho nuff Says:

    this is seriously a limp d**k organization…everything they go get is busted. nicks, revis, mcsniffles…oh and that O coordinator from boston college who didnt know how to call plays….pitiful

  85. sho nuff Says:

    give me 1 reason why i should blow out a beautiful fall sunday for the bucs?

  86. Espo Says:

    Sho Buff, I’ll give you a reason not to. I don’t want you there.

    Best wishes to Tedford. It sounds like he’s being making the right move. I don’t know him personally but I’m sure he hates having to do this.

    I have a feeling this might help the team in a way. Arroyo will hopefully be able to call plays as he sees fit. Let the rising star show what he’s got without having to run someone else’s game plan.

  87. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Jim Walker Says
    “At the end of this year I would cut Johnson, Bowers, Clayborne…”

    Bowers and Clayborn will be unrestricted free agents.

  88. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I was skeptical from the start on the Tedford hire. There were, and are, better options out there.

    The problem is Arroyo will be promoted, even though he sucks.

    I was also skeptical of Frazier, but I know Rod won’t be available until after this season.

    If everyone wants the first pick of the draft, the last thing you should want is Glennon to start. He’s just good enough to win 6 games at minimum.

  89. MGMob Exterminator Says:

    @Buc1987: Wanting Kafka to start is as foolish as wanting Glennon to start because McCown has been bad. I actually friggin despise Kafka, but what gets me more is the mob mentality of this idiotic mob. From the beginning of the season all I heard was how Glennon should start by default because we already know McCown is nothing more than a backup and with Glennon there is at least potential to improve. I wonder why that does not apply to Kafka if Glennon plays like a gun shy game manager when our team is being blown out.

    My only fear is if Lovie will actually like gun shy Glennon in the hopes that if our defense becomes elite, we CAN/MAY with this Matt Cassell twin brother of a QB.

  90. MGMob Exterminator Says:

    rewording the last sentence of my previous post:

    we CAN win with this Matt Cassell twin brother of a QB

  91. Buccfan37 Says:

    Ever since the beginning of the Bucs, practicing in the Florida sun was supposed to give the Bucs an advantage when other teams come to Tampa and melt in the heat. To this day I have never seen that to be the case.

  92. Craig Trigueiro Says:

    As a doctor it is clearly much more than stents.

  93. Brandon Says:

    Well, whomever is OC, he will definitely enjoy the ability to pick from Brett Hundley, Marcus Mariota, and any other QBs that flash top of the 1st round ability.

  94. RastaMon Says:

    Weeks ago when the Tedford story broke… posted a link to what his condition was…as I recall…it as a ENT issue…saliavry gland/throat medical surgery…which would explain why he can’t “call” plays….there are nerve /vocal cord issues with surgery

  95. Patrick Says:

    It’s just unbelievable how horrible of luck this franchise has.

  96. Pruritus Ani Says:

    Tough break for everyone but especially, for Tedford. To put things in perspective, we always have another season, but we only have one life. I hope he recovers. It does suck as I was really looking forward to this season. Yeah as a Buc fan, I ve endured some curses but this year is one for the ages.

    As an aside fire the strength and conditioning coach. I’ve never seen a team so poorly prepared for a season. My 87 year old abuela is in better shape.

  97. MTM Says:

    Does any reasonable minded Bucs fan think Tedford’s absence is the reason the offense is horrible. Child please! Two back up QB’s, O-line of castaways and a case of offensive sabotage. Finally get a first down, then fumble the ball away. The Buc’s are the East Coast Raiders!

  98. Buc1987 Says:

    Hire Robert9 or Robert8 or whichever one he is this week to be the new OC. Tell him to bring his Madden 2015 playbook with him and let him fly.

    Rasta, what you posted was a radical parotidectomy. I have no idea if that is what he had done, but that is surgery to remove the parotid gland, the major salivary gland. Clench your teeth, and feel your cheeks with both hands near your ears. That muscle you feel is the masseter muscle, which closes our jaw to chew. On top of that is the parotid gland, which makes saliva. The glandular elements of that gland can become cancerous, which may require a radical parotidectomy to remove the gland, adjacent tissues, and lymph nodes. (Think the John McCain look—–his was for a malignant skin tumor but same area in general). That is why I have kept asking if any of the Joe’s have actually seen Coach Tedford, to see if outwardly he looks the same. He may have had cardiac stents, but as noted above by Dr. Trigueiro, this should NOT result in a very long illness/rehab period. In any event, this is all conjecture and matters little. As noted previously, I only wish Coach Tedford the best, and godspeed on a complete recovery.

    We need to fire whoever conducts our pre employment physicals. That guy must be blind, the stuff that gets by him!! Toes, Knees, Hearts!!
    Is that guy even looking???

    As I , and others have stated- it is a far larger issue than a couple of Stents- which only effect RobertIQ9 ,for any length of time.

    Get Well Jeff Tedford

    Bring in Martz. Bring in Martz

    As others have done, I too will use this excuse to revise my season prediction.
    No. 9-7 . I wish that were true

    I am now predicting 4-12, and Glennon winning the only thing”Mr.Checkdown” will ever win.

    The first pick
    Marcus Meriota.
    Winston will prove to be to stupid and immature. Already wasted time on that road

    Losing Tedford killed this season. Still have faith in Lovie

  101. Capt.Tim, trapped in Davie Jones's Locket Says:

    Am I the only one, or is anyone else deeply concerned that this team is being accused- again- of quitting.

    That’s like the 4th time it has been called out.
    I don’t recall any other team being called out for that, before week 15

    Could have had Norv Turner and Mike Munchak! Just sayin’.

    I’d rather Tebow or even a loser like Jamarcus Russell. At least then there’s the possibility of greatness. I saw more than enough of Mike Glennon last year to know he doesn’t have what it takes. Him playing is hopeless.

    In fact, I’d still take McCown over Glennon but get him into some other system posthaste cause he can’t do beans in what they have right now.

    I want to see enjoyable games, not develop someone else’s backup next year.
