Report: Bucs' Morris will be back in 2010
Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris will remain Tampa Bay's head coach in 2010.
That news was confirmed in a statement released by Bucs co-chairman Joel Glazer late Monday night.
"We are committed to the plan that we began 12 months ago with Coach Morris, and we look forward to building on the pieces that were put in place this season," said Glazer.
The Bucs went 3-13 during the 2009 regular season, which was Morris' first on the job. He fired offensive coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski 10 days before the regular season started and demoted defensive coordinator Jim Bates midway through the season. Tampa Bay's offense and defense finished the season ranked 28th and 27th, respectively.
Morris remains the NFL's youngest head coach and avoids the fate suffered by the last head coach to go 3-13 in Tampa Bay (Richard Williamson - 1991).
