News broke on Thursday night that the Tampa Bay Buccs will make Dirk Koetter their new head coach. He was previously their offensive coordinator.

Adam Schefter was reporting as of 5:57 pm that the Bucs and Koetter were closing in on a deal.


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.
