Tampa Bay Buccaneers will retain Dirk Koetter as head coach

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.

The chokehold Eric was put in by officer Daniel Pantaleo lasted anywhere from 15 to 19 seconds. In 2015, the Garner family settled a civil wrongful death suit with the city for $5.9m .

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.

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.
