Buccaneers make it official, hire Dirk Koetter as head coach
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made it official, hiring Dirk Koetter as their next head coach. Koetter was the offensive coordinator under the fired Lovie Smith. Koetter did a nice job with rookie quarterback Jameis Winston. “We are excited to announce that Dirk Koetter will lead the Buccaneers as our new head coach,” said Buccaneers Co-Chairman Joel Glazer. ”Dirk has established himself as one of the top offensive coaches in our game while enjoying success at every stop during his college and NFL career. His success with our offense last season, along with his familiarity with our players and our organization, makes Dirk the right man to lead our team moving forward.” Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
