The firing of head coach Lovie Smith by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Wednesday night was a shocking development.
And it doesn’t seem to be sitting too well with some of the Buccaneers players.
Linebacker Lavonte David tweeted about the decision to fire Smith shortly after learning about the move. David summed up his feelings with a simple, but telling “WTF YO!!!”
Smith is the third head coach fired by the Buccaneers since the end of the 2011 season. Raheem Morris was let go after three seasons in Tampa Bay. Greg Schiano lasted just two seasons as the Buccaneers coach and Smith just two more.
Whomever replaces Smith will be the third different head coach David has had as he gets prepared to enter his fifth season in Tampa Bay.
