With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers entering their final regular season game this week in the midst of a nine-game losing streak and several questions surrounding the future of head coach Raheem Morris, comes the rumor of the possibility that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers might have already met with former NFL head coach Jeff Fisher.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat writer Rick Stroud reports early this New Year’s Day morning on Twitter, that former Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher was seen at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers team hotel last night in Atlanta. This might simply be a coincidence since Fisher’s son was playing in the Chick-fil-A- Bowl which was played in Atlanta.
But, as Stroud reports, Jeff Fisher is reported to be on the top of the list of coaches which could replace Raheem Morris if the Buccaneers ownership decides to move in another direction at the head coach position.
If the Buccaneers do indeed offer the position to Jeff Fisher, a hiring of the former Titans head coach could also spell the end of General Manager Mark Dominick. Fisher is widely believed to be one of the high profile coaching names which is expected to want total control over their staff and will want to bring in his own general manager.
With a loss this afternoon against the Atlanta Falcons, the Buccaneers will have lost as many consecutive games this season as the team won last year as every aspect of the Buccaneers play on the field regressed.
