Published reports say the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will bring head coach Dirk Koetter back for a third season.

With one game left in the regular season, the 11-4 Carolina Panthers are still competing for a chance to claim the NFC South crown.

Koetter's status had been tenuous due to this season's disappointing performance.

Of course, Tampa Bay's struggles this year can't be blamed entirely on Koetter.

But, just two years removed from a 9-7 record in his first season as a head coach, Koetter gets a reprieve from the Glazer family, which has been known to make rash coaching decisions in the past. "He came in - then he was the OC". "Being in the locker room after a win in the National Football League, no matter what the implications are, I think just being in that locker room after a win, with a bunch of guys you've worked hard with and care about, it's going to be rewarding for us". As the head coach, it has been kind of different but Dirk is the man. "Somebody wrote me the other day and said that they love me as a player, they love me off the field, but I should get traded, so we can get more picks". You just don't understand that relationship in that quarterback room.

The Bucs have played tough down the stretch.

The Bucs have invested heavily in surrounding Winston with a supporting cast on offense at the expense of their defense.

Since returning to the lineup in Week 13, Winston has completed 95 of 132 passes (71.9 percent) for 1,221 yards and eight touchdowns with two interceptions.

With a -3.53 nERD, Tampa Bay ranks 21st in our power rankings heading into Week 17. Toss in a couple losing seasons and another handful just over the.500 mark and Gruden walked out of Tampa with a 57-55 overall record with the organization.
