Dirk Koetter's job as head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is safe for at least one more year.

But are they making the right move?

By coaching the Buc's in the 2018 season, Koetter is given something his two predecessors were not, a chance to coach a third season.

Snapchat may bring 'Stories' to the web
Chopra was previously the CEO of News Corp .'s social news company Storyful, and also led video efforts for the company. Furthermore, Snapchat users will have all of their pictures from this year condensed into a single, editable story .

Of course, Tampa Bay's struggles this year can't be blamed entirely on Koetter. As the head coach, it has been kind of different but Dirk is the man.

But quarterback Jameis Winston regressed in 2017 and also missed time with a shoulder injury. "Everybody has their different characteristics, but at the end of the day we all love each other".

The Buccaneers won't be giving the quick hook to a second consecutive head coach after only two seasons. The Bucs have seven starting quality players on injured reserve, including defensive end Noah Spence, who played in only three games before undergoing shoulder surgery.

Cold spell to stretch through New Year's
Correia said its not uncommon for a week-long cold snap with an air mass such as this lingering over the region. Risky wind chills are likely this weekend into New Year's Day, according to the National Weather Service .

With that said, the Glazers and Licht felt it was appropriate to give Koetter another year. It'll be interesting to see what happens with the Bucs "D" under coordinator Mike Smith after it's been one of the NFL's more disappointing units, ranked last in sack percentage, 31st in yardage and 24th in points allowed.

It is important for a developing quarterback to have continuity. Here is to hoping that year three is the year for Koetter, Winston, and the Bucs.

Koetter was notified of the decision just two days before the Bucs play their season finale against the New Orleans Saints at Raymond James Stadium.
