We can’t imagine many coaches of 1-12 teams expressing unbridled joy regarding their professional circumstances. But it’s still a bit alarming when a coach openly states that he might not be happy with his job.
After losing to the Jets in a game that featured a successful surprise onside kick by the Bucs, coach Raheem Morris said Monday on WDAE (via JoeBucsFan.com), “It was one of the few times this year that I enjoyed being a head coach.”
Morris’ candor comes a week after safety Tanard Jackson told the St. Petersburg Times (via JoeBucsFan.com) that Morris “said he was getting a little bored as a head coach” before he became more involved with the defense after the termination/reassignment of Jim Bates.
[UPDATE: Rosenthal says, “Thanks for reading PFT.”]
With the Bucs heading for what would be the most single-season losses in franchise history, such words from Morris could prompt some pointed conversations at One Buc Place in January regarding whether Morris will continue as the team’s head coach.
