Bucs continue front office changes as Kokinis' name surfaces

Doug Williams departed the Bucs front office early in the week, and pro personnel assistant Victor Green was next to go on Thursday.

So who is coming aboard to help G.M. Mark Dominik?

Pewter Report sources believe former Browns G.M. George Kokinis is a candidate to replace Williams.  Dominik would not comment on Kokinis, who many thought would wind up back in Baltimore.

Meanwhile, Redskins G.M. Bruce Allen spoke briefly Wednesday about Williams possibly working for him again.

“I talked to Doug today,” Allen said. “We shared some fun stories and
he told me what transpired [in Tampa Bay], but I’ll leave that between
us.  We’ll see [about Williams joining the Redskins.] He’s got some plans.”

    From a team rapidly sinking to the bottom of the league to a team that is obviously on the rise………. Good luck getting the job Doug!!!

    “Yeah, Williams and Green love it out there on Pitcairn Island so far. No stress and the weather is always sunny. Arrr, the lucky dogs.”.

    It wouldn’t be the same without Mangini to aptly name the duo ManKok.

    And we have been led to believe that TB was on the mend.
    HAHA. Bye Bye. Former Browns GM? Hell, they might as well sign Millen too.
    LMAO.

    Respect to Doug Williams. I think he should enjoy life. I had the pleasure of being his bar tender once and he was a great tipper. Good times.

    Maybe Kokinis will be given the time to do the job. The guy knows talent and evaluation. Obviously what he didn’t know was that Mangina was a lying scumbag who brought on his friend and then threw him under the bus at the first instance of issue.

    I just hope Doug does not go to the same voodoo lady in N.O. that he did the last time he decided to “depart”.

    “I talked to Doug today,” Allen said. “We shared some fun stories and he told me what transpired [in Tampa Bay], but I’ll leave that between us. TRANSLATION: What’s happening in Tampa is a JOKE and we swapped stories about how far that franchise has fallen in the last 15 months.

    Are you serious? Does “on the rise” mean age?

    Yea, out with the old losers and in with the new losers.
    Crap trickles down and Tampa Bay is “Glazed” over
    with it right now !
    Ownership sucks, the rest doesn’t matter.

    I can’t believe Kokinis would accept the pay package they will offer.

    Maybe so… or maybe Kokinis was a fine mid-level executive who either was unready or unable to handle the leadership position he was given — thus forcing his friend to try to do both jobs all season.

    OK haters…, maybe Bruce Allen and Doug Williams had a nice chat about the 2004 draft in which they drafted Michael Clayton (BUST), a journeyman linebacker (Marquise Cooper) who is sadly presumed dead at sea, and at least three players who I’m pretty sure Allen made-up (Jeb Terry, Casey Cramer, and Lenny Williams).
    Or perhaps they are talking about how well they developed QBs in the Gruden era and how fun it was to collect and hoard old broken QBs like Griese and Jake Plummer. Or maybe they reminisced about drafting Dexter Jackson in 2008, or Gaines Adams in 2007. Or maybe, maybe they are chatting about how awesome it was to have the oldest defense in the NFL and watch them all become too old at once and lose their last 4 games of 2008 and slide from first in the division to OUT OF THE PLAYOFFS.
    If you don’t think Tampa Bay is in the process of FIXING their problems, then you don’t get it.

    @rocknrollsinger,
    I agree Completely with everything you say. Were doing the right thing in Tampa Bay. Wish we drafted some DE’s but we bought Simeon too. Bruce Allen is only good for mediocricy, the gut loves veterans with maybe a year left. GO BUCS!!!

    Bruce is a dollars and cents cap guy, and he did an amazing job at salvaging the sh!theap left by golden boy Richie.

    dead on rocknroll….
    For the LIFE of me can someone give me a name of 1 QB Gruden developed as a head coach?…Just one. And don’t say Rich Gannon. He did s*** in spite of Gruden and was in his mid 30′s when Gruden worked with him…
    The Bucs are doing what Rich McKay did. Build through the draft…
    I’ll say it…Williams was a FIGUREHEAD period…if not then he was a huge FAIL being part of that scouting department that should have all gotten fired. It was obvious to me that Dominick and Raheem took over this draft and did the work they couldn’t do…
