Raheem Morris Fired As Tampa Bay Buccaneers Head Coach

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have fired head coach Raheem Morris, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Morris was one of a handful of coaches who were fearing Black Monday. His Bucs lost 10 straight to end the season at 4-12. His firing isn't a major surprise.

Morris and the Bucs had a surprise 10-win season in 2010 which meant they had expectations entering 2011. They started off well winning four of their first six before hitting a 10-game losing streak. Not only were they losing, but they were often getting blown out.

Morris' Bucs career ends after three seasons -- three wins in 2009, 10 wins in 2010 and four wins in 2012.

The Bucs' job should be somewhat attractive because they have plenty of cap space and a solid quarterback in Josh Freeman, even if he did struggle this year.
