A day after the Bucs fell to 0-5 in the same year that someone thought it would be a good idea to fire Jon Gruden and replace him with a guy in his early 30s who was never a coordinator nor an NFL player, the man who became the new head coach of the team suggested that the entire coaching staff received some pointed criticism on Monday.
“We had our coaches meeting this morning,” Raheem Morris said Monday, per JoeBucsFan.com. “We got our faces ripped off as a coaching staff, me included.”
It’s unclear who delivered the message, but it sounds like it didn’t come from Morris. If it was someone else, it could have been G.M. Mark Dominik, or it could have been someone from the ownership level.
Either way, the “face ripped off” comment from Morris didn’t make its way into the quotes that were distributed by the team via e-mail.
Several of you have asked whether Morris might already be on the hot seat, in his first season on the job. The broader question is whether the Glazers would entertain the thought of hiring a new coach while buying out both Morris and Gruden.
