“Favorite Coach Ever!”

April 30th, 2017

MLB reacts.

If you think the Stick Carriers are fired up for winning Bucs coach Dirk Koetter, you should see the players.

One in particular is middle linebacker Kwon Alexander.

Yesterday at his post-draft press conference, Koetter was asked how he wanted his team thought of. He quickly replied “Badass.”

Well, Paul Ryan of WFLA-TV Channel 8 recorded the press conference and Twittered out the clip of Koetter’s quip. This caught the eyes of Alexander, who replied to Ryan’s post with the following comment:

@Showtime17Kwon: Favorite coach ever!

And Kwon is hardly the only one to say this. Last year in a postgame locker room celebration, America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, gave Koetter a game ball for his first NFL win as a head coach. Jameis remarked that Koetter was the best coach he ever had.

The Bucs are building something here folks. Might just be a fun ride.

    Love this coach. He gets what it takes to win. No BS. I’m proud to be part of the new Buccaneers BMFS (Big M F Sticks) carrying team

  2. Bucco bruce Says:

    This calls for!Tampaaaaaaaa!!!!!

  3. denjoe Says:

    Definitely, awesome that he tells it like it is. great coach. I don’t like all the lovie and schiano haters they all have contributed in various ways. Koetter is a mixture of natural motivator,coach and teacher. His biggest attribute I think is knowing how to use what talent is available to him, and raising it up,(by coaching them up) if he has to. IMO

  4. Bucco bruce Says:

    Number one offense this year and number 7 rated defense

  5. LakeLandBuc Says:

    It’s good to have a player’s coach.

  6. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    I agree…I’m a little than most of you..about to turn the big 50..been watching my Bucs since day one, though it was from faraway..

    I’ve NEVER seen this energy. I’ve never seen this much respect for our HC. Kwon is 22 years old!! 22 freaking years old!!! Some kids entering the nFL these past few days are his age!! This guy is a vet now! When I saw that Tweet, I about jumped out of my seat and went to hug my football gods mantle..the entire mantle.

    Koetter and his no bullspit speeches. He speaks his mind and the players listen..

    We’re on something special folks, something really special..let’s hold on tight to our armchairs cause we are going to FLY!!!

  7. WeAreLost Says:

    He fires me up and I’m not even on the team. Love coach K!

    Dirk Koetter: The Original Stick Carrier

  9. Defense Rules Says:

    How could anyone NOT love this coach? Amazes me that it took so long for any NFL team to offer him a HC position.

  10. MadMax Says:

    Definitely my favorite since Gruden (and will soon pass him if we can get to the promised land).

    Im pretty sure the Glazers are happy to see that the Coaching/GM carousel has ceased. I think we’re going to see a 5 year perennial playoff contender starting this year! Great time to be a Buc fan!!! My kitty fan friends are hating the DJAX signing and Howard drafting….I chuckle at them. “Serious fire power” came from one of them. HAHAHAHA……I said yup, get ready for another sweeping!!!

  11. teacherman777 Says:

    Best Coach in Bucs history.

    He’s authentic and very creative.

    Remember how the Falcons used to destroy us all the time?

    He would pas directly at Leonard Johnson all game.

    He would also always have a bruising running back like Snelling and quick twitch scat backs.

    He knows how to build a great offense.

    We are so lucky to have this guy!!!

  12. OneBuc55 Says:

    The Licht/Koetter/Winston connection…

    Licht buys the groceries, Koetter cooks the meal, and Winston serves it up…As long as we keep these 3 together we shouldn’t have any problems filling up the trophy case at One BuC Place…

  13. tdtb2015 Says:

    Fire them cannons!!!

  14. No_Bucs_Given Says:

    Dirk and Licht need to be around for a looong time.

  15. carrythatmofostick Says:

    well lifeasabucsfan, i just turned fifty to the 4 and like you brother have seen them all from MCkay to Gruden, and i too am loving me some Mr Koetter, and it looks like the team does too!!! i have not been this stoked for this team in quite some time, man these are some good times, go bucs

  16. carrythatmofostick Says:

    i really don’t count raheem and lovie, and imho lovie had to be on a par as one of the worst hire ever by this organization

  17. Kevin Says:

    Glad all the dummies who scoffed at the idea of giving this man his first head coaching gig with us didn’t get they’re wish. He’s so much more than just a coordinator. The man get’s it. This is going to be a fun team for years to come!!!

    Bucs are back !!

  18. richbucsfan Says:

    I think the years ahead will be fun. Gone are the Yuccaneers. Welcome back, Buccaneers!!

  19. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Bucs signed:

    Thomas Sperbeck, WR, Boise State, UDFA
    Likely camp bait…but he DID run the 40 in 4.47. He has topped 1,200 yards in each of the past two seasons. 5’11”, 180 lbs.

  20. Buc50 Says:

    I was a huge Raheem critic but I think he was just too young. I think he’s a good coach and he’s proven that with the multiple stops he’s had since he coached the Bucs. No other Bucs head coach is still in the league.

  21. Casual Observer Says:

    Don’t even need to play the season. Just give us the SB trophy now. Save injuries.

  22. ARGH_M8E Says:

    Thomas Sperbeck, WR, Boise State
    Christian Kuntz, LB, Duquense
    Anthony Auclair, TE, Laval
    Paul Magloire, S, Arizona
    Riley Bullough, LB, Michigan State
    Sefo Liufau, QB Colorado

    ANYBODY KNOW OR SEEN THESE GUYS PLAY REGULARLY, drop some knowledge on me please. Speebeck sounds intriguing, thanks Bonzai

  23. 1sparkybuc Says:

    Clearly the best OC and HC in franchise history. Knows the Xs and Os and tells it like it is. The players couldn’t trust or believe anything Jon Gruden said. That’s not the case with Koetter. The players respect him. They trust him and they love him. They’ll run through a brick wall for him. The word gets around the league. The best free agents will want to play for him. Great weather, no state taxes, and a great HC, is a winning combination. I’ve seen them all from the very beginning. Koetter is head and shoulders above all of them, Gruden included.

  24. Buc1987 Says:

    Let’s be real. Any coach that says stuff like carry a big mofo stick is going to have his team fired up.

    So much charisma on this team, not seen since Sapp days. We’re definitely building something special here.

    1sparkybuc…might Tampa become an NFL powerhouse?

  25. Bird Says:

    Love em

  26. JonBuc Says:

    Gruden flashed…then got cocky and things started to go sideways. Dungy was actually guilty of being “too nice” and stubborn with an anemic offense. Koetter appears to have “all the right moves”…hopefully it continues.

  27. Ndog Says:

    That’s right it doesn’t matter what you think of the draft at this point or even certain players it’s time to all get on board. You can always say I told you so later if you’re right, but just hope you’re not so we are a bad a** team! Let’s do this!!!!!!!!

    Carrythatmofostick…. to give her credit, the wealth of knowledge known as LifeofaBucsfan is a LADY! And we are all glad she’s here!

  30. NJBucsFan Says:

    Lovie who?

  31. Capt.Tim Says:

    When was the last time that a Bucfan said
    “I love our GM/Coach/Qb”?
    This going to turn out to be a fsntastic draft.
    Plugged holes with talent.

    Next task, Mr. Licht
    Go find us a lethal DE. Even if hes only lethat a couple more years

    Thanks Rob..

    A lady in public but a loud-foul mouthed biatch when my Bucs are on…I think my two sons are not going to be around during game day anymore..When Bucs are losing, I am terrible to be around with..

  33. Buccfan37 Says:

    No doubt LifeOfABucFan, Bucs losing is a major league bummer.

  34. delson Says:

    Nobody was more excited than me to have hired Koetter as OC. Then to have him take over as HC was the BEST move the Bucs have made in the past 3 years, right after the Lovie firing. We have spots on our defense that need to be filled but 3 straight strong drafts for our offense was all we needed

  35. Biggun Says:

    I’m drinking the Kool-Aid……. But let’s not forget our DC Smith he’ll tighten the screws and dial in the boys its going to be lethal…

  36. JGA Says:

    You wanna keep this train rolling ? Four things we need to do ASAP in this order (Based on remaining contracts)

    1. Extend Licht (Priority one)
    2. Extend 13
    3. Extend 3
    4. Extend Koetter

    Failure to do ANY of these four things = Back to being league doormats !!

    GET IT DONE GLAZER FAMILY !!!!! Pretty please 🙏🏻
