The Bucs did the inevitable on Saturday, picking up the two-year option on coach Raheem Morris’ contract, according to Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times.
The two-year club option on Morris’ contract is worth $2-million per season, and he could make up to $3.5 million-per-season with incentives. Those are low marks for any head coach, especially one that Bucs G.M. Mark Dominik said was the NFL’s best coach in 2010.
We have to wonder if Morris will be happy under the terms of his old contract and whether the Bucs will be open to a bigger extension before the 2011 season starts.
