Dirk Koetter: Bartender And Janitor (Video)

September 2nd, 2018

“Look, Ali, if you want to grow a real beard switch to scotch and soda.”

Very cool inside look here as the Buccaneers continue to invest in high-end video production to help you better know your favorite team.

Today, the Bucs released the production below titled: Koetter. It’s a 10-minute peek at who Dirk Koetter is as the pride of Pocatello, Idaho.

The Bucs went back to his hometown to talk to family, friends, coaches and a dude who lives in Koetter’s old house.

Who knew Koetter was a bartender and a janitor at local sports bar? Great stuff.

    It truly is a refreshing experience to see things like this that humanize coaches and players. Sometimes we can forget that these are people we cheer for one week than demand their livelihoods the following week are people just like us.

    Well done. Would love to see Dirk take the Bucs to the Super Bowl.

    That was cool. I like how he worked at “the Press Box” in Idaho. Licht has been known for being seen at the Press Box in south tampa. I’m thinking now he found Koetter just because he was up near Idaho somewhere and was craving some good wings.

    Be careful. .statements like that could get a mental health investigation started given how bad the roster is and non competitive the organization has been and will be.
