The Buccaneers fired Lovie Smith roughly a week ago, in what was considered a surprise by many in the NFL.
After interviewing two other candidates (Sean McDermott and Harold Goodwin), Koetter reportedly got the job. He was rumored to be the frontrunner immediately after Lovie Smith was let go.
As for fantasy implications, we'll hit those this offseason.
For the record, I never actually played football. I have no doubt that I would get crushed running across the middle for a pass, every single time.
