Greg Schiano endorses Mike Glennon as starter, own future uncertain

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Mike Glennon is set to return as Tampa Bay's starter in 2014, if Greg Schiano returns.

Greg Schiano's future remains undetermined, but it seems that the current Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach has already settled on his quarterback of the future.

That might be a bit premature. In fact, I'm very, very certain it's premature. Mike Glennon was far, far below average in basically every statistic except touchdown percentage and interception percentage. He had, effectively, two good games in a 13-game season. He showed some promise, but he showed many, many issues that need to be addressed for him to be anything more than a solid backup.

In that light, endorsing him as the guy going forward is beyond ridiculous. Last season Schiano set off an offseason of quarterback controversy by saying Josh Freeman needed more competition, and yet this year he's satisfied with a passer who by any sensible measure had a worse season. One redeeming feature: Schiano's future remains uncertain, too.

Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter of ESPN claim there's a "general feeling of uneasiness" surrounding Schiano (via Rick Stroud), but then Peter King says he would be "very surprised" if Schiano was fired, or if he left for Penn State. Meanwhile, Schiano's press conference is scheduled for 2:30 PM, but that doesn't signify much, either: the Glazers may take weeks to fire Schiano (as they did with Jon Gruden), or they may do it minutes before a press conference.

If there's anything we've learned over the years, it's that no one knows what the Glazers are thinking. And until one of them comes out and either says Schiano is safe, or he's fired, no one really knows what's going on. Stay tuned, Bucs fans. We'll keep you covered.
