    DK did the best job….but not by much in my book….

  2. Clarence Says:

    lmao at the single vote for lovie. Merry Christmas to all Bucs fans, it’s been a cruddy decade.

  3. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Greg Schiano should have been given another year with all the BS he had to go through, bucs defense including gmc was best the bucs had since the gruden days

  4. Not there yet Says:

    That’s the worse poll I’ve ever seen. Dirk Koetter is getting all the votes for having the same record as the other guys almost. But I bet no one will compare the rosters. Dirk has more talent on his team than all the others combined. Worse coach ever

  5. Rick Says:

    Not a whole lot of winning there. *sigh* merry Christmas ya’ll!

  6. Rashad Says:

    Raheem the dream did more with less. Give him this roster . Then I would say schiano next. Had he been given more time to learn how to deal with grown men, he may have been something.

  7. csidedave Says:

    Hopefully the NEXT ONE!!

  8. PSLBob Says:

    Should have included “Nome of the Above”.

  9. Rojas Says:

    Raheem.. did more with less.

  10. TexasTony Says:

    Are you kidding me! These choices why even vote!

  11. Lordcornelius Says:

    This is like a who’s the smartest dumb person award

  12. Buc50 Says:

    Funny how everyone was calling Raheem Radio and now he’s in the lead for best coach in the past 10 years and deservedly so. Pathetic!!!

  13. WalkdaPlank Says:

    The 2010 season was a fluke but it’s the only thing us Bucs fans got this decade.

    Raheem fielded a playoff caliber team with the most starting rookies and youngest overall team in the NFL and for the most part a bunch of scrubs.

  14. rrsrq Says:

    If the Bucs has invested in talent and veteran leadership, Rah might still be coaching this team.

  15. LakeLand Says:

    Rah won 10 games with a bunch of undrafted free agents

    Greg Schiano,Lovie Smith, Dirk Koetter won less games with high paid free agents/high draft picks at most positions.

  16. rrsrq Says:

    @ Buc50

    Don’t get it confused, they were not calling him Radio (the person that Cuba Golding played), Radio Raheem came from the movie by Spike Lee “Do the Right Thing), the character played by Bill Nunn

  17. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    “Other than that, how was the play Mrs. Lincoln?”

  18. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    What do you like best – poop, feces, turds or defecation?

  19. rrsrq Says:


    Radio Raheem was a character played by Bill Nun in Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing”, not the person that Cuba Gooding played

  20. Fire Goodell Says:

    Picked Raheem. If he won 10 games with that roster in 2010, how many could he win today?

  21. Destinjohnny Says:

    If schiano stayed we wouldn’t look like we do now

    Sheesh…reminds me of the last Presidential election…

  24. SchwiftyBuc Says:

    They all sucked equally should be an option.

  25. Jim Says:

    “BEST”? Did you say “BEST”??

  26. DB55 Says:

    Raheem had a lot of bad boys and that’s why they won. 🤔

  27. Dlavid Says:

    Good night after looking at the four names I thought no way to choose ! Who was best ?? What a laugher ! Joe you really put one on us here !

  28. Dom is gone ... Licht Says:

    LOL you mean who sucked the least… RAH he did more with less… Dork dead last has had the most talent and done nothing

  29. Wesley Says:

    Raheem had NOTHING to work with and still won 10 games.

  30. Kobe Faker Says:

    Amazing the love for Klueless a position coach who was pushed to Head Coach by the teflon power hungry Gump

    Ohh what a tragic redneck shakesperan tragedy indeed

    “Klueless is the white man for the job”

    The Buc Sheep

  31. quatteolou Says:

    Schiano should have had more time.

  32. Kalind Says:

    Those 9 votes for Lovie….are those his family?

  33. Buccfan37 Says:

    Always liked Schiano but the big ruckus on rushing the endgame kneel play was BS that strangely caught wind as being a fireable offense and he was gone.

  34. GoBuc Says:

    does everyone agree that this is the most depressing poll? raheem morris?? really? merry xmas… i guess 🙁

  35. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Schiano was like a Belicheck and would have instilled discipline on a team that had lacked for years but some in the media didn’t have the stomach and fortitude to give him that chance and ran him off. I still can’t get over the billboards. An all time low.

  36. Jean Lafitte Says:

    From day one training camp the media railed on “toes on the line”

  37. unbelievable Says:

    Man some of ya’ll have short memories.

    Schiano went from 7-9 to 4-12, that’s why he was fired.

  38. Buc believer Says:

    I liked his rushing the end game kneel! Play till the FINAL whistle blows! Schiano was hosed!

  39. Buc believer Says:

    @unbelievable…. what’s worse??? Going 7-9 to 4-12 or going 9-7 then back to back losing seasons??

  40. Bird Says:

    Tough call

    I agree Lovie is the worst. He should have 0 votes

  41. TonyC Says:

    Koetter reminds me of Sam Wyche in a lot of ways. He kept getting passes by Culverhouse (based on past resume) and wasn’t able to put together a winning season. I voted Raheem based on the talent level and his overall enthusiasm (something that Koetter just doesn’t have).

  42. Willy D Buc Says:

    Raheem had better o-line talent than Koetter, but y’all shouldn’t forget that the team quit on Raheem.

  43. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    People choosing Raheem have really, really bad memories.

    He won 10 games because we had the easiest schedule in 20 years…and have not had an easy one since.

  44. Rob Says:

    They all suck. How many playoff wins from that illustrious group? A joke and an ownership that swings and misses every time, except with Gruden. Go Bucs!

  45. ToesOnTheLine!!! Says:

    Screen name says it all…Schiano was building a solid defense year two but got hosed by MRSA, ESPN talking heads sucking foolish fans in with fabricated drama (where’s that proof of leaked medical records?), and a “franchise (killer) QB” that was exposed as physically strong yet emotionally fragile.

  46. Buc50 Says:

    @Bonzai we can’t win 5 games in consecutive years and you say Raheem had an easy schedule. He played who was in front of him, that’s all that matters.

    Jean we finally agree on something. Schiano was a tirant but that is exactly what this organization needed and still needs.

  48. lambchop Says:

    The real poll should be how many of these Ex-Buc HCs really should have been and would have shined as coordinators and not HCs. Schiano is a good defensive coordinator. Raheem was too much of a player’s coach and he was quite young taking over the helm without a good supporting cast of coaches/mentors. He would have been a better position coach.

    None of these guys are legit playoff head coaches though. Rah might do better his 2nd time around with the experience.

    But all of these coaches also need a GM who has a football IQ and is not a doormat to the coach.

  49. Loyaltotheend Says:

    Votes for Lovie prove his family and relatives visit this site

  50. Jean Lafitte Says:

    I had nothing against Lovie Smith but he wasn’t what this team needed. He was too much of a Dungy disciple. This team needs a strong disciplinarian type coach. A Tom Coughlin would be sweet but he’s up there in age. Maybe we could pull Bill Cowher out of retirement. Maybe ask Schiano again.

  51. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Speaking of Bill Cowher, that coach could get animated on the sideline with that square jawline and spit hahaha

  52. Bucfan1988 Says:

    Rah did the best, but they quit on him that last year. Did more with substantially less talent than what we currently have.

  53. Bucfan1988 Says:

    Drug Martin over 100 yards rushing tonite for Raider Nation against Broncos…

    Yeah, I think that tells you how PATHETIC our O-line is when it comes to run-blocking…..

  54. Loyaltotheend Says:

    Rah his team quit on him that means he doesn’t get my vote

    Schiano had a promising 1st year but Freeman and MRSA killed any chance he had of being a good NFL coach that and Dominik being awful

    Lovie was just a desperate nostalgia hire and was a joke

    Dirk while he has his faults his teams never quit like Rah so while the wins aren’t there Dirk is the best but can’t over come a bad GM, a bad defensive coordinator and an awful kicking situation

  55. Matts17 Says:

    I couldn’t in good conscience vote for any of those stiffs. That list just perfectly illuminates the Glazers’ inability to pick a head coach.

  56. Jean Lafitte Says:


    The Bucs had one of the easiest schedules in the NFL entering the 2010 season the year Rah went 10-6.

  57. Krojen Says:

    As much as I’d like to say Raheem did more with less.. he also had one of the easier schedules ever. It felt like every week we were playing a bad team that was down to their 3rd string QB. I still give him the nod, though.

  58. BucLover727 Says:

    Rah for Bucs HC in 2019!! Yeah, I said it!

  59. BucLover727 Says:

    Merry Christmas!!!

  60. EA Says:

    Very tough one to pick, I voted for toes on the line because at least he was a disciplinarian.

  61. PSLBob Says:

    AlvinS Harper, damn man you made me actually LOL!

  62. Patrick Says:

    Yeah Raheem won 10 games and most of them were against crappy teams.

  63. Dan Says:

    Raheem was 10-6 end of story.

  64. T REX Says:

    Tallest midget. All are trash.


  65. Maze Says:

    I see 32 morons cast their votes

  66. Rod Munch Says:

    Morris and isn’t not even close. Morris had by far the least amount of talent (after years and years of terrible drafting by Gruden) and had the Bucs one BS offensive PI call away from the playoffs (that the NFL later apologized for – sorry Bucs fans, but the Packers get better TV ratings and need that spot).

    Morris made Josh Freeman look great, and once he fired his DC and coached the defense himself, the defense looks good – all with a lot less talent than any of the other coaches had.

    Morris absolutely should have been given another year – and instead the team goes with the fake tough guy Jersey Trash (TM) Schiano who promptly ruins Josh Freeman and puts the team into the dumper.

    Dirk meanwhile has had a franchise QB and a ton of individual talent (albeit it with very little to no depth) and has done nothing with it. He’s an emo idiot who can’t manage a clock, who can’t make halftime adjustments, who rarely has his team ready to play. As for Dirk just take what JPP had to say about Dirk’s coaching…JPP said he “likes it”. Yeah! What a ringing endorsement! That sums of Dirk, he’s a good to great OC who shouldn’t have ever been pushed into being a HC and has shown why he was in his mid-50s with a long track record of success and yet never had previously been an NFL head coach and will never be one again.

  67. EA Says:

    you guys must not remember the last year of Morris, players just quit on him, he had no respect in the locker room. I don’t think the other 3 lost the respect of the players like that.

  68. Jameis Wienstien Says:

    Imagine what Radio could have done with all the talent on this team. We would be perennial playoff contenders right now.

  69. WillieG Says:

    Morris was not ready to be a head coach. He liked to go out drinking with his players. His 10 win season was a fluke. Then he lost the locker room.

    Lovie was stuck in his scheme and wouldn’t change.

    Schiano was, and is, a college coach. His authoritarian style was not suited for the NFL, but he was needed to bring discipline back to the locker room.

    Koetter’s biggest mistake was keeping Smith so long. But he built the absolute best offense in Bucs history. The O line sucks. JW (who Koetter didn’t want) sucks. There are still plenty of holes on this team, so Licht shares a lot of the blame for the record.

    Overall, I have to say Koetter is the best because of his success with the offense, in spite of all the issues and problems he’s had to deal with. The others didn’t really have any success beyond 1 good (but non-playoff) season by Morris.

  70. QUE5 Says:

    Raheem was the best out of that group. Really it’s not even close.

  71. Kansas95Buc Says:

    Raheem did more with less, not exactly sure what happen in 2011
