A day after abruptly firing Super Bowl winner Jon Gruden, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have introduced Raheem Morris as their new coach.
Morris inherits a team that won three division titles under his
predecessor but has hasn't won a playoff game since capturing the
franchise's only NFL title in January 2003. The Gruden era ended
with four consecutive losses that denied the Bucs a postseason spot
following a 9-3 start.
The 32-year-old Morris has no previous head coaching experience.
The Bucs promoted him to defensive coordinator on Christmas Day,
and he recently interviewed for the Denver Broncos coaching
Mark Dominik is the new general manager. He has been with the
team since 1995 and replaces Bruce Allen, who was fired Friday.
