  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers v Carolina Panthers

According to a report from Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, which has been confirmed by Adam Schefter, Dirk Koetter will return for the 2018 season.

Multiple outlets are reporting that the Glazer family, owners of the Buccaneers, made the decision to bring Koetter back Friday morning.

"Dirk has been here [since] my first year", said Winston on Thursday. The Bucs have some young playmakers we'd expect to be featured more next season, including wideout Chris Godwin, tight end O.J. Howard and running back Peyton Barber.

It's an annual tradition to be swamped by rumors of Jon Gruden's potential imminent return to coaching, but those stories seem to have a lot more to them this time around.

He spent five seasons in Jacksonville before being named the offensive coordinator in Atlanta from 2012-2014.

However, the 2017 season is a year Tampa Bay wants to forget. This is somewhat surprising given the big expectations for a Bucs team that's gone just 4-11 through 15 weeks of play. Like and follow on and Facebook.
