Raheem Morris And The Bucs

November 28th, 2023

Tampa Bay fans in every corner of the universe are discussing a looming head coaching change for their beloved Bucs.

Joe gets it. Team Glazer surely feels it. The Bucs are 4-7 and sinking fast. Todd Bowles also sounds like a head coach without a fix up his sleeve, other than “we have to play it better and we have to coach it better.”

So Joe feels compelled to explore potential new Bucs head coaches on these pages.

Hopefully, Bowles stuns the NFL universe and wins the final six games of 2023. What a comeback that would be! But that’s about likely as Joe buying making millions on Only Fans or Ira Kaufman turning down a free calzone. However, Rachaad White rumbled for 100 yards rushing yesterday, so Joe holds out hope.

What about Raheem Morris as the next Bucs head coach?

Joe is not endorsing Raheem, but he is an interesting candidate on multiple fronts.

First, the former Bucs head coach (2009-2011) brings a ton of experience at 47 years old. He’s one of the rare men who has coached successfully on both sides of the ball, and he’s been around many systems and stud coaches. Also, he successfully groomed a rookie quarterback to a great year in his second NFL season (Josh Freeman, 2010).

Per Joe’s sources, Team Glazer loved Raheem and was sorry to see him go, but they felt compelled to launch him after he lost 10 straight to close the 2011 campaign as a 35 year old head coach.

Joe sees Raheem, now the Rams defensive coordinator, as a guy who could pull a strong offensive mind from the Sean McVay coaching tree to call plays for the Bucs. He might also turn to Greg Olson, the former Bucs offensive coordinator who guided Freeman and worked as a senior advisor to McVay with the Rams last year.

Olson replaced current Bucs offensive coordinator Dave Canales in Seattle. Olson also walked into a messy Jacksonville team as playcaller to start Blake Bortles’ second season. Bortles proceeded to throw 35 touchdown passes in his first season with Olson, one behind league-leading Tom Brady.

Overall, Joe thinks Raheem has learned a ton since leaving the Bucs, has a solid resume and has the juice to build a strong staff. Also, Joe thinks Raheem would do wonders with the big-money cornerbacks the Bucs seem locked into, Carlton Davis and Jamel Dean, along with Antoine Winfield if he’s re-signed.

Would Team Glazer interview Raheem? A solid maybe.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! It wasn’t just a 10 game losing streak. It was 10 straight blowouts! Talk about losing your players. The worst HC in NFL history!

  2. Bucsmarley Says:

    Joe have another beer😂
    Take the oc from dolfins, eagles or buffalo

  3. Andrew Fish Says:

    Raheem got a raw deal when he was coach. He was told they were not going to get any free agents and build through the draft like the Steelers. His OC quit right before the start of the season. If we could have signed any free agents I think he would have lasted longer.

  4. Bosch Says:

    Joe you started off saying you don’t endorse him, but every statement the followed WAS an endorsement. C’mon man!
    You, C’mon. Joe eventually will endorse a candidate. Joe listed reasoned positives of this one. Doesn’t mean he’s the best candidate. –Joe

  5. gregoreo Says:

    would our team still be youngry? he would be an upgrade over coach Bowles

  6. Steven007 Says:

    Not outside the realm of possibility. He was very clearly in over his head when he took over previously. But he said great success as an assistant to many prominent coaches and has a vast network of contacts now. We could do worse.

  7. BucBaker Says:

    What the actual @#%@#$??


  8. Marine Buc Says:


    If that is the alternative choice I would rather keep Todd Bowles for one more year and continue the rebuild until 2025.

    We will need the high draft picks and hopefully we put them to good use.

    I don’t want Bill Belichick either… He hasn’t won squat without Tom Brady.

  9. AtlBuc Says:

    Rah for HC Ryan for DC

  10. Marine Buc Says:

    Either hire an offensive guru or just keep the “defensive guru” we already have in place.

    Plus I would like to see if Dave Canales can progress after his first year at OC.

  11. Craig Says:

    I hope this is just the first of many such pieces.

    Raheem was too young to be a head coach last time and he has landed in some interesting places and maybe learned a lot, but let us consider a few other too, please.

    The younger Harbaugh might be ready to leave Michigan, after this last kerfuffle.

  12. Erik Hesson - Fine Artist and Founder of UniqueModernArt.com Says:

    He would be light years better than Bowles, I’m sure.

  13. HC Grover Says:

    Enough wit those negative waves Moriority….LOL

  14. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    I could get behind Olson for OC for sure. Maybe bring back Morris but second go rounds don’t often work.

  15. TheMightyVH Says:

    No fff-ing way Joe #justsaynotoraratheclown

  16. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Not sure about Jim Harbaugh either. He’s REALLY weird, more weird than the average NFL guy (who are themselves above average in that aspect vs us normal guys). Plus, it seems he burns bridges everywhere he’s been after a few years. On the good side, the offense would be instantly better for a while.

  17. Viktor Saint Claire Says:

    Well heck if we’re gong that route Joe, where’s Leeman Bennett, or Ray Perkins, or Richard Williamson? As an avid reader of JBF, this is a ridiculous idea. No, just no to Raheem (Youngry) Morris… pfft…..

  18. Statistically Insignificant Reader Says:

    Can’t believe I just read that. WOW.
    Fans would pack the stadium, what excitement that would create.
    Optimism would return. Free agents will want to be here again.
    What the hell.

  19. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    This has to be the worst idea I’ve heard so far.

  20. Tony Marks Says:

    Joe says:
    Hopefully, Bowles stuns the NFL universe and wins the final six games of 2023. What a comeback that would be! But that’s about likely as Joe making millions on Only Fans


    lol……So you are that optimistic then because there are MUCH stranger things than that making money on tik -tok so chances aren’t that bad I would think on only fans.

  21. J Dubb Says:

    I would be okay with it. As far as I am concerned, he overachieved with the roster he was given last time. It’s only after we let him go, we went after V Jax (RIP) and other free agents. It seems like all the players he had weee out of the league within a couple of years of him leaving and he still got us a record good enough for the wild card that we unfortunately lost out on due to tiebreaker. If given a team with talent like I think we have, I believe he would do well second time around.

  22. WillieG Says:

    I would love to have Coach Morris…..IF, IF, IF he leaves behind his alter ego – Nightclub Rah.

  23. Davenport Says:

    Should Rah get another shot?
    Yes, at 35 he wasn’t ready.
    But with the Bucs, no.

    If you want to recycle a prev Bucs coach, Gruden is the only one to consider.

  24. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Licht and staff blew it with JTS and L Hall draft picks
    Offense has 1st year OC and QB’s with 1st time with new OC. Mayfield needs to take the short passes more often that are open and stop scrambling around looking for something better and then getting sacked or fumbling.
    T Palmer is inconsistent – makes some tough catches and drops too many
    They only have 2 NFL roster caliber RB’s.
    Hainsey is a backup- they need to draft a new Center.
    If Bucs finish season 3-3, Bowles will be back, mainly because he has 3 years left on his deal and because this roster has some significant holes.
    I know the Eagles have 2 1st year Coordinators, but their OLine and DLines are among the best in NFL if not the Best.

  25. Popcorn Mike Says:

    I don’t think the Glazers would go with Morris. I think if Bowles is shown the door, the Glazers are gonna make a big splash. The question is who are the top coach’s that may be available in 024? Belichick is 71, Sean Mcvay would be my guy but I don’t know what’s going on with him and the Rams. He had mentioned burn out and almost didn’t coach this year

  26. Cobraboy Says:

    Good Lord.

    Are you serious?

    This team would lose a lifetime fan if they brought Radio back in any capacity.

    What an embarrassment.

    “Youngry?” For real?

    Are the Glazers ~that~ woke?

    He was possibly one of the worst head coaches in NFL history. I’d rather have the Ghost of Leeman Bennett and his RV than Radio Morris.

  27. stpetebucfan Says:

    There are many worse candidates than Rah. He was promoted too young, got too chummy with players almost his age and lest we forget he was part of the Glazers darkest era. They leveraged the Bucs to the max to pull off the coup of buying Man. U. In the end it worked out and now the Glazers are free again to be good owners. Back then they were simply trying to get through economic slump, overleveraged but they pulled it off…kudos to them…but a CHEAP 35 year old coach probably paid the price.

    Bottom line for me is I agree with Joe…Rah “might” be a good choice.

    Like most here I do not want another defensive guy as HC but I find Rah a LOT more open minded that Bowles or Lovie. He’s had a chance to grow.

  28. Tye Says:

    WHY would any actual fan of the Bucs want to go back to an ex for the next 3 years?…. That is an acceptance to return to the dark decade that was started by such a bone headed act of ignorance making him HC the 1st time….

    GOTTA be PLENTY of better options!

  29. Jack Clark Says:

    Eric Bieniemy is the best candidate to be our next head coach! He’s offensive minded, won two Super Bowls, developed Patrick Mahomes into a super star, the chiefs offense isn’t doing as well without him as their OC, he improved the sorry as Washingon Commanders offense in his first year, the commanders are leading the league in passing yards even with a sorry as QB, the commanders are averaging 4.5 YPC running so he can fix our running game too, and best of all he is an offensive minded coach who loves to pass and guess who we have? Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Rachaad White, and a decent pass blocking O-Line! We can demote Todd Bowles back to DC and keep Dave Canales as OC so he can learn how to be a good OC from a two time super bowl winning OC.

  30. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Has a head coach ever been hired twice to the same team? Let alone a failed one?

    Some of these articles, Joe, just leave in the drafts like the Rex Ryan one.

    Coming up- “Mike Smith and the Bucs”

  31. Mike Johnson Says:

    Say Joe, you are something else. You say, Hopefully Bowles stuns the NFL universe and wins the last 6 games. I’m still uncontrollably laughing dude. That would not be a stun. That would be a Fred Sanford Bonafide heart attack. A lot of us Bucs fans would surely go into cardiac arrest. Now. Actually, Old Rah might not be as bad as suggestion as a lot of Buc fans think. He’s made the rounds and is probably a hella lot smarter than he was. But I’d still luv to see Chucky come back and win.

  32. Conte Piscatelli Says:

    Did someone really suggest getting the offensive coordinator from Buffalo? Which one? Ken Dorsey was fired mid season and currently the Bills have an interim offensive coordinator.

  33. D-Rome Says:

    I have no doubt Raheem would be a fine Head Coach years later. He deserves another opportunity far more than a bunch of retreads that are out there. It’s my understanding some of the free agents the Bucs brought in during the 2009 off season thought he was a player. He was very young and inexperienced. He has two Super Bowl rings, most recently with the Rams.

    I’d have no problem with bring back Raheem one more time.

  34. stpetebucfan Says:


    “Not sure about Jim Harbaugh either. He’s REALLY weird, more weird than the average NFL guy \”

    A personal anecdote about Harbaugh that may influence my thinking. How many remember Super Bowl of 2013 aka “The Bro Bowl” because Jim coached the Niners against his brother John’s Ravens. The first time ever brothers ever coached against each other in the SB.

    Of course John won and imagine if that was a bitter pill to swallow for baby brother Jim.

    Fast forward a few years. I accompanied my wife to one of her Dental meetings in Atlanta. As fate would have it the NCAA was also having a tournament round that same weekend.

    We went down to breakfast and in walks Jim Harbaugh with his wife. Those of us who recognized him of course looked but one 8-10 year old little boy with his father approaches Harbaugh in excitement and says…”Hey are you the coach that just won the Super Bowl?” Harbaugh calmly replied with a smile no that was my older brother John with the Ravens, my team lost that game.

    The father was embarrassed but Harbaugh handled it with total class. He left the room a few minutes later and when he returned he brought a Niners jersey back with him to the buffet…he signed it…and gave it to the awestruck little boy. If you saw the reaction on the father’s face and the little boys excitement you’d realize why on the purely human level I’m a huge fan of Jim Harbaugh.\

    BTW he was in town because his brother in law was the head coach of Indiana that season and they were playing in the tournament.

  35. FortMyersDave Says:

    Rah gets an interview to help satisfy the Rooney rule.

  36. Bosch Says:

    The 2011 memories are still so painful. This was the darkest period of the Glazer era. I don’t think there was a game in that final stretch in which the opponent played their starters in Q4. It was bewildering because it followed an over achieving 2010. They played worse than any expansion team ever did with the possible exception of the 1976 Bucs (0-14).

  37. Hunter Says:

    With Raheem, the biggest problem was he got way way way too friendly with his players and went partying with them all the time, to say the least. Great dude and tried to build a great culture, but was too young & immature at the time.

  38. BA’s Red Pen Says:

    Never another D coordinator as head coach please. I have seen a few people saying the Bucs should look at the Dolphins OC, the Dolphins head coach is their OC so that ain’t happening.

  39. Kidfloflo Says:

    If any body has learned anything about the Glazers, they love a big splash, i.e Gruden, Arians, trying for Parcells like 3 times, no way they go back to the well with Raheem!! SILLY

  40. unbelievable Says:

    You’re funny Joe.

  41. BucsFan81 Says:

    Rex Ryan to Morris damn Joe do you want another lost decade. My god when I said coaching options I thought we would get legit choices not garbage re trends.

  42. Pewter power Says:

    Anyone but Todd Bowles

    If we lose to the panthers then Bowles needs to be fired if for no other reason so that potential coaches know without a doubt there is a coaching vacancy. It would be time to start the hire process early not at the end of the season.

  43. Buc Fan in CO Says:

    I’m not against the team exploring it. There’s no way he has coached for the subsequent decade without learning a bunch and growing as a coach and a leader. I doubt anyone in here isn’t better at their job now than they were in 2011.

  44. DS Says:

    He’s not bad also he had zero work with during his tenure ijs. Glazer gutted the team and left him to coach with a terrible GM

  45. Leighroy Says:

    What do you guys expect Joe to write about? We want a change, Joe is presenting the options – for better or for worse. There’s still a month and a half left in the season, so there are many, many candidates to get through. You don’t like the first two, and I don’t either, you probably won’t like the next dozen. But you might like a couple of them!

    Like it or not these are the guys available and if you’re so down on them, then strap in for year 3 of the Todd Bowles era.

  46. Pelsbuc61 Says:

    Been there, done that. Hell no!!! Bucs need to hire a young offensive mind who’ll bring in a DC for today’s game. Most importantly, a HC that’ll hold players accountable and bring in some alpha dogs personalities on the team like, Sapp, Nickerson, JPP and Suh. Fitzpatrick from the Steelers literally had a confrontation with another player for loafing. No such players on this sorry team that has assumed the personality of its lifeless coach.

  47. DS Says:

    Also if Rah is so bad why is he still in footballl? Teams desire his skills ijs

  48. Doc Says:

    Who has a better coaching resume may then coach Morris. Would be a very good choice. Will someone please provided a better qualifiyed coach, then coach Morris.

  49. BigPoppaBuc Says:

    I like this idea mostly because I HATE the idea of him finally getting another shot at HC somewhere and killing it. I really liked Morris even knowing he wasn’t ready for the gig. He’s a good coach. Although I don’t recall what he did that lost that team. They had such a promising season before it all imploded and the team clearly gave up on him.

  50. Darin Says:

    Raheem will be a good HC the second time around. Very good coach. Not sure if here would be the place tho. He’s a much better coach than Bowles that’s for sure. He can actually game plan AND adjust. What a concept. But who are all these fans talking about a coaching change? All the fans I know talked about that last off season. We saw this same show with the goat. Who in their right mind thought it would get better? Not it

  51. BucsFanSince1996 Says:

    At the time Raheem’s coaching style was considered similar to another former Bucs coach, Mike Tomlin. He got promoted too fast because the Glazers loved him and didn’t want to lose him to another team. I’m confident he will get another chance to be a HC in the NFL and believe he’ll be successful.

    If I owned the team he’d be on my list of prospects to interview but don’t know that he’d be my first choice.

    I would attempt to coax another coach out of retirement, Tony Dungy.

  52. ShakeandBaker Says:

    Had he not completely crashed here 12 years ago I probably would be ok with him. No way in hell though the Glazers would risk the fan backlash of bringing back the guy who coached the worst stretch of 10 games in the history of pro football. Now those were some seriously dark times.

  53. Duane in Sanford Says:

    I liked Rah. Team Glazer did not give him a bunch of money to work with. IIRC, Rah’s team tuned him out as well during that losing streak, so I dont see it happening. Its a scoring league, and we have an overpaid defense. This roster needs an offensive mind. Under Koetter we at least fired the cannons multiple times a game. 6-10, 7-9 is still enjoyable if the team scores points. Jaymiss was must watch tv regardless of outcome.

  54. TheMightyVH Says:

    If they bring anyone back it should be Coach Dungy with Peyton as his oc.

    Seriously, go get an offensive minded guy like the dude in Detroit – Ben Johnson

  55. Jmarkbuc Says:

    The tbb3

    The Raiders did it twice…

    Art Shell and Jon Gruden.

  56. stpetebucfan Says:

    Just curious? When a black coach gets a job interview in the NFL is it because of the Rooney Rule. When an incompetent white coach gets an interview is it because of the white privilege rule?

    Isn’t it long past the time for dogwhistles?

  57. John Mason Says:

    Joe…..You been slamming way to many beers…..NO NO NO on Morris….we need a offensive HC…..so plz don’t rile us up again like that…Morris had his chance…Bowels had his chance in NY…how did that work out…now look at the mess we are in!

  58. Hodad Says:

    Let the new G.M. pick the coach. I’m hoping that’s Ronde Barber who replaces Licht. I coud see Ronde following the Lynch career path.

  59. Tom horn Says:

    Your kidding right?

  60. HC Grover Says:

    Yougottabekiddingme. Thank goodness we still has da Fish in Miami.

  61. DS Says:

    Ronde would make a good GM even though he said Chris Conte was a good safety lol

  62. SB~LV Says:

    Joe should be banned

  63. Pewter power Says:

    Whatever happens what do we know for sure? If Bowles don’t win out he’s fine and once again Sean Payton is schooling us and from another division.

    What does it look like with a real head coach? Denver started 1-5 including getting beat 70-20 by the dolphins. Fast forward to week 12 they’ve won 5 straight including wins against the chiefs and bills! Does anyone think Bowles can beat the chiefs or get some kind of signature win to save his job?

  64. realistic-optimistic Says:

    No thank you to Raheem the Dream.

    What about Brian Johnson (PHI) or Ben Johnson (DET). Hell I would even consider Bobby Slowik (HOU). All are offensive coaches and have experience calling plays, all are young, all are guiding good offenses. I’d start my list with those three.

    Not really feeling Harbaugh. He would probably make us a winner in short order, but he seems to piss off every place he coaches.

  65. optimisticbucsfan Says:


    is williamson still alive?

  66. Paul Says:

    Im not sure which Joe, wrote this, but whom ever did needs to be drug tested!!!! You can’t be serious even mentioning his name on this platform. First an over the hill re-tred like Rex Ryan and now Morris??? How bout some offensive minded up and coming coaches like Ben Johnson. I don’t think its any coincidence that SF, Philly, and KC are consistently going deep in the playoffs. We need an offensive head coach period!

  67. EEK Says:

    an upgrade on the current HC
    he did have a sweet season
    there are way worse options
    teams will be lining up for Harbaugh

  68. BucsFan2520 Says:

    Seems the qualification to be a Bucs head coach or qb is preferably of color.

  69. Bobby Says:

    I like it the idea Joe, yea interview Raheem him. Your reasons are interesting. Why not?? While we are it at lets get Gruden an interview too.

  70. Bee Says:

    Joe smokin that wacky tobacky! Lol…no retreads please. Damn…some Bucs fans are really desperate

  71. sasquatch Says:

    This, at least, is a better idea than yesterday’s fragrant air-biscuit, Rex Ryan.

    Raheem has no doubt grown a lot as a coach since he was here. It’s not like he’s not on the NFL head coaching radar.

  72. Waterboy Says:

    I liked Rah and always felt he got a raw deal having such a young team that got derailed during the 2011 NFL strike. The media down there was quick to jump on him and eventually I think his young players started to believe a lot of the things that were being written.

  73. Waterboy Says:

    I’d be interested to see what Rah could do in New Orleans next season.

  74. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Joe…that is mean, lol.

  75. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Im with Hodad…

    At this point the GM is a much bigger issue.

  76. DS Says:

    @Joe do you have any intel the glazers are looking for a new coach ?

  77. HC Grover Says:

    They hire him and i am over it.

  78. Joe Says:

    @Joe do you have any intel the glazers are looking for a new coach ?

    No, but wouldn’t shock Joe one bit if they are.

    Just because they haven’t made a move doesn’t mean they aren’t preparing to make a move.

  79. OlBoy Says:

    Hahahahah hahahahahahaha
    Here’s your click.
    Just, no.

  80. Todd Rolls Says:

    No way I’ll stop being a fan

  81. HC Grover Says:

    Maybe Lovie is available?

  82. Todd Rolls Says:

    Richard Williamson available????

  83. Scott o Says:


  84. Capt.Tim Says:

    I was impressed with Rahim when he was here.
    They jumped him up the food chain too fast.
    Now? Yeah, I think he could be a great head coach.

    But not here. He deserves afresh start, not a return to his greatest failure.
    That would have a bad affect on him.

    He, and we, deserve a turn in a fresh direction.

    I would be more open to Canales as Coach.

  85. Leopold Stotch Says:

    Goodish news everyone. JPP is now a dolphin. Beats being an aint

  86. Old Sombrero Says:

    ‘Rah’ had absolutely zero control over his players. He wanted to identify with them at their level as if he was one of them. Players play. Coaches coach. He wanted to do both and actually did both.

  87. Jvato24 Says:

    Fair to say he did more with less than any Buc head coach in the last millennium

  88. IE Buc Says:

    Raheem was not ready to be HC when he got promoted. He should have stayed DC as planned. The Glazers panicked thinking another team was going to hire him as HC.

    The biggest what if was what would have happened if Rich Bisaccia had been named HC instead. He deserved the shot and job at that time to be HC.

    I believe that Rahhem can be a good HC now after all the experience and maturity he gained. He has been HC material for the last 3 years or so.

  89. Boltsfan17 Says:

    Hilarious! That guy is a clown too. If this inept franchise hired him, I’d walk away from this team forever.

  90. Sunken Ship Says:

    Hell no
    Awww hell no

  91. Fred Says:

    Joe….. can you fit another commercial on your website? Come on….
    Regarding Raheem…..no!
    I’d like to see Gruden return if the Glazers want a previous coach.

  92. Jeff Says:

    Hell No!

  93. Glass used to be Half Full Guy Says:

    If memory serves, I’m pretty sure 4-7 at this point in the season is about what was expected of this team during camp with all of the new pieces and the cap issues. I think what stings is getting off to a 3-1 start and seemingly regressing rather than improving.

    I was one of the few who thought (or hoped) or a 10 win season or at least 9-8 and a division win but I think most people pegged us as 6.5 wins (Vegas odds) with many fans taking the under.

    As for Morris…..I’m not sure. He definitely wasn’t ready for the job before but maybe he is now. Seems like a gamble tho. There’s definitely a shortage of good coaches these days.

  94. ghost Says:


  95. Onetrickpony Says:

    Frank Smith, o c for the Miami Dolphins.

  96. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Next coach will be White.

    Look at Team Glazer’s hiring history.

  97. PowerOfPewter Says:

    Put down the crack pipe.

  98. Tvan101 Says:

    I actually think this is a great idea.

  99. Bucsfan1011 Says:

    This is a great idea and I would love to see it happen.

  100. Winny Testaverde Says:

    Welcome to Desperation Nation: The Team, The Joes, The Fans

  101. TheLaughingMan Says:

    The Buccos need a Doug Pederson type HC….Rah ain’t it sadly….

    If you’re gonna do a retread why not bring back John McKay….and Doug Williams as QB….

    Just sayin…lol

  102. Duane in Sanford Says:

    It took an offensive mind to get Dungys’s guys over the hump, and another one to work with The Goat to get our second championship. Its a scoring league. This team doesnt have the players or the heart to play a style where they impose their will and grind the clock down for wins. What we learned about turnovers this season is that they only really matter if you commit them. This is a finesse team that should be managed as such.

  103. mord Says:

    Clone Mike McDaniel

  104. dalvincookrules Says:

    Just an all-around bad idea…. could Raheem surprise? sure, theoretically.

    Why not just go out and find a real coach instead.

  105. DoooshLaRue Says:


    The Glazer hiring pattern

  106. Mike S Says:

    Joe you’re an evil man

  107. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    50 years of prior NFL coaching history is the reason for the Rooney rule so just stop it upset white guy.

    St Pete thank you for that post it was right on point refuting the 1st guy mentioned

    For the maroon crying about Tampa Bay’s HC and qb choices please look at the HCs before Bowles and all three qbs rbs have been in our team are white and I believe Shawn King or Josh Johnson were the last black qbs on this team!

    Rah won 10 games his first year and almost got to the playoffs his 1st year and had coached on both sides of the ball since then. Like it was said he’s still in the league after 12 years so he has learned alot since then and teams have wanted his services. We’ve hired worst since he left

    Get Raheem, he was young his first time around, led the youngest team in the league to 10 wins, has coached offense AND defense. Always came off as really sharp. His problem was he was too buddy buddy with players, I’m sure he’ll never make that mistake again. He’s had success everywhere he’s went. Ink it.

  109. Mike S Says:

    You could not have a more terrible idea.


    You certainly don’t try to double down on the defensive minded coach + Sean McVay dink and dunk passing game combination.

    Don’t even think for a minute Baker is coming back so get that out of your head right now. The Baker dream is over. No more sales pitches. No more not so subtle sandcastle building and talk about bravado. No more groundwork to try to soften the blow. No more slow walked discussions about needing an experienced guy and all that.


    Joe… Joe… We’ve endured enough Joe. We’ve been through enough Joe.

    We need a smart innovative offensive minded coach in here that has a vertical passing mindset. WE WANT OFFENSE JOE.

    Don’t try to sell us a guy nobody else wants who isn’t on any short lists out there that the Bucs can get on the cheap. The only reason they would bring Morris back would be to give him a dirt cheap contract. Are the Glazers hurting financially? Is it austerity time? Is this what you are trying socialize?

    If they actually did bring in Morris it would be the ultimate slap in all of our collective faces after the last two seasons of coaching incompetence we’ve had to endure.

    Raheem was certainly put in a tough position that year as the Bucs HC. Since then he’s been building quite a successful resume and at 49, he’s likely going to have many successful coaching years ahead.

    I was impressed with him, despite the losses, but it’s hard to imagine the owners even contemplating bringing him back. But if the next HC is from the coaching ranks of other teams, his credentials match up well with the rest of them. He’s certainly a HC contender again.

    what if:

    tommy b is getting so itchy in his underwear sitting on the couch watch games on sunday…..

    and mentally he just has to get back to the sidelines…

    what if he’s going crazy yelling at the tv during bucs and pats games…

    what if he’s regretting agreeing to go in the announcer booth next year because he craves the sidelines so much…and knows he’s simply too old to get on the field and in the action any more…

    what if tom brady becomes the next HC of the bucs and they pay him handsomely…after all a handsome man needs a handsome paycheck…

    and what if to seal the deal the glazers give him a small piece of ownership within the franchise as good faith – and so he’s a buccaneer for life…

    and what if……….the new america’s team is back in business and is getting the brady rules delivered to us all over again…and we get a boatload of prime time games…

    what if…yes what if…


    no more #TB12……..it’s #TBHC (head coach)

  112. adam from ny Says:

    can you imagine tommy b strutting the sidelines in a headset, holding a waffle house menu !


  113. steele Says:

    Please, no retreads with notorious losing histories. No internal promotions. This team needs a fresh start and a house cleaning, culturally, physically and especially mentally.

  114. JackStanton Says:

    Stop with the affirmative action hires ready, haven’t we have suffered enough over the years?
    Interviewing all races is fine, just stop hiring someon just because he checks off some arbitrary box. Color, sex or any other qualifier other than most qualified and proven excellence in coaching is why we keep ending up where we continually find ourselves. On the losing end of the season.

  115. TampaBayBob Says:

    Just say NO! Sweet Mercy! NO!

  116. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Jack Stanton where were you when plenty of non white coaches were denied the chance to head coach because teams kept hiring tired losing retreads because they were white??? You must live in Siesta Key Sarasota because you have your head stuck in its soft white sand!

  117. Zoocomics Says:

    With the names you’re dropping Joe, I don’t see how we improve from what this team is now.

    I will argue schematically, I don’t recall what this team was on Offensively during the Olsen era with Freeman under center, I do remember the early success of the long ball by Josh. I’m pretty sure Raheem was a def 4-3 guy, he came from the Kiffin coaching tree, so I’m assuming it was a Tampa 2?

    I tell you, when we landed Arians, it just seemed like everything aligned for us coaching wise, given Bowles was coming off being fired from his first head coaching stint. Everyone else that survived Arians retiring in Arizona were fired. But it wasn’t all peaches and cream during that first Buc’s Arians season. Be curious how much success we would have had without Brady. Because A LOT of dudes would not have shown up to play for Tampa like they did with Brady being the main center piece on the team.

  118. Dlavid Says:

    Wow Joe, you really lit a fire this morning ! But I kind of like the idea. I believe Raheem has probably matured and definitely learn the game better on both sides of the ball. I do not discount this offering, the Glazer’s would have to look into his eyes and see what is in him.

  119. Daniel Says:

    Rex Ryan and Raheem Morris? No please stop.

    50 years of prior NFL coaching history is the reason for the Rooney rule so just stop it upset white guy.

    St Pete thank you for that post it was right on point refuting the 1st guy mentioned

    For the maroon crying about Tampa Bay’s HC and qb choices please look at the HCs before Bowles and all three qbs rbs have been in our team are white and I believe Shawn King or Josh Johnson were the last black qbs on this team!

    Rah won 10 games his first year and almost got to the playoffs his 1st year and had coached on both sides of the ball since then. Like it was said he’s still in the league after 12 years so he has learned alot since then and teams have wanted his services. We’ve hired worst since he left


    I’ll give you a pass and say you were in a medical coma for a few years or you’re talking out of your a$$.

    First – Raheem won 3 games his first year, 10 his second, then 4 his third. He also was the interim coach in Atlanta 2020 and went 4-7.

    Second – you’re missing josh freeman and Jamie’s Winston from your qb list.

    Third – plenty of coaches are great at what they specialize in but that doesn’t equate to being a head coach

    Plenty of places to check your facts before posting bs. This article was obviously written to create banter because it would be an idiotic move by the team and one that will make me disappear for 3 years until he’s fired again like lovie smith. I r always said ownership here does not know how to sustain success. It’s time they sell – I’ll trade a flash in the pan Lombardi for knowing your team will be in the playoffs every year with a chance.

  121. Mike Alstott Jr. Says:

    Joe why are you obsessed with PROVEN losers!! Rex Ryan now this??? Come on…

  122. Pmike Says:

    Are you out of your mind??!! Why would you ever take a step back like that!? Come on man!!!

  123. Allbuccedup Says:

    Why not Leeman Bennett, Tom Moore could be offensive coordinator there about the say age.

  124. rrsrq Says:

    Rah already sold his crib in Tampa, I do not think he would even comeback without a serious contract offer. He is married now. Would have made a lot of coaching connections now, but would he do it without a commitment to a future QB and he would bring back the 4-3 defense and sense I am rambling, go get SAPP from Colorado as your d line coach

  125. Joey Storm Says:

    Hell to the NO!

  126. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    I stand corrected BucsFan2520 dang you’re right completely forgot about them so yeah had a brain fart and was kind of lazy on that part so I apologize. When dudes cry reverse discrimination or Rooney rule because the Glazers are willing to give people a chance that weren’t given other places it irks the crap or of me because the history of the NFL proves that equality was not equal for the longest time but these people conveniently forget about all that.

    I understand your point, and agree with the history. I dont agree with hiring over someone else for that reason specifically – as long as they have an equal chance in the interview room. thats besides the point for me. my frustration is with the glazers. they choose mediocrity every time regardless of color. they are lazy and pick coaches they can low ball offers to.

  128. Henry Lynn Says:

    I would say no to this one that would be like bringing Jon gruden back.. I think there are some better choices out there

  129. BertoRican Says:

    I love love love love Raheem Morris and hope he gets a shot at annother head coaching job. Best attitude and quotes in the game. And he didn’t overly reward loyalty like Arians did. “I will tolerate you until I can replace you.” He got screwed by the circumstances. Not sure if the best path for him is the Bucs job though. If I were him, I’d have a hard time trusting the Glazers.

  130. Orlampa Turd Says:

    The Race to 10. I loved that guy. Bring back Raheem the Dream!

  131. Orlampa Turd Says:

    Raheem had his own problems (inexperience for starters) but never forget how cheap the Glazers and the Rockstar GM were when Raheem was here. There was no salary floor in those days if I remember correctly.
