Dirk Koetter will be retained by Buccaneers in 2018

NFL Power Rankings: Panthers rise entering Week 17 Tampa Bay Times: Dirk Koetter will return to coach Bucs next season
Eugene Bates | 30 December, 2017, 03:10

Despite multiple reports linking Gruden to the Tampa Bay job, it turns out those rumors were a bit premature.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have chose to retain coach Dirk Koetter, according to multiple reports on Friday.

The team informed Koetter on Friday that they will keep him as head coach.

Continue reading on the Tampa Bay Times.

Tampa Bay hired Koetter to further develop then-sophomore Jameis Winston, who was the No. 1 pick in the 2015 National Football League draft. Though turnovers are still an issue for Winston, he has completed a higher rate of passes for a higher average per completion this season.

Mere hours later, a auto registered to DeSean Jackson was involved in a single-vehicle accident.

Koetter was the Buccaneers' offensive coordinator in 2015.

But, just two years removed from a 9-7 record in his first season as a head coach, Koetter gets a reprieve from the Glazer family, which has been known to make rash coaching decisions in the past.

The overall disappointment brought by these two former Redskins, both on and off the field, has certainly done little to help Tampa Bay as they've limped to a 4-11 record, the second-worst in the NFC.
