Things to Consider During the Bucs Head Coach Search



1) There are no glamour picks out there, boys and girls. There's no Bill Parcells to tempt and taunt our ownership this time. The biggest name in HC is Bill Cowher and he's staying put in his cushy commentator job (until the Jets or Cowboys job opens most likely). We're going to have to accept that whoever gets the Bucs' HC job is not the best-of-the-best-of-the-BEST.

2) Previous experience with Head Coaching hires is that the Big Name isn't always the best choice. Ray Perkins, anyone? Sam Wyche, fresh from coaching Cincy to a Super Bowl loss? It ended up being a respected long-time coordinator in Tony Dungy, about as unglamourous a pick as possible, who turned the ship around and made Tampa Bay playoff (and Super Bowl) contenders. This is where Jerry Gray, who HAS a few years of coordinator experience under his belt, might surprise...

3) The What-The-Hell hires never worked, did they? Leeman Bennett was a so-so HC for Atlanta and was out of coaching for a few years when Culverhouse picked him to follow McKay. Total disaster that was. Richard Williamson was the "Parcells Dumped Up" pick (the FIRST time around, fer crissakes) that was clearly a placeholder guy, sorry man. And then there was Raheem...

4) No one should consider if the coaching hire is going to bring back the ticket buyers. There has been more at work - actually a lack of work damn you unemployment figures! - with the declining attendance than just the lousy coaching. The best way to bring the ticket buyers back is LOWERING THE TICKETS PRICES MORE! AND FREE PARKING! GAAAAAH!

That said, I still hope the Glazers can mend fences with Tony Dungy and bring him back now. Hopefully everybody's matured and learned their lessons from the last time...
