Buccaneers coach says everyone should be fired after blowout loss
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were blown out 48-10 by the Chicago Bears on Sunday, and it was a performance that left a lot of people embarrassed.
That included head coach Dirk Koetter, who stated that everyone involved with the performance deserved to be fired — including himself.
Dirk Koetter not sugar-coating things: “We were horrific in all aspects today. All aspects.” Asked if he’d consider switching DCs, he said “We should fire every person that was on the field today.” Said that included him.

The Buccaneers allowed 483 total yards, and Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky threw six touchdowns. Tampa Bay also switched quarterbacks at the half, though it did little to alter the course of the game.
The Buccaneers can’t quite fire everybody, even with a performance that bad. However, given Koetter’s forceful answer, defensive coordinator Mike Smith might be a little bit worried heading into work this week.
