The NFL season ends on Sunday, and with it, so will the tenure of several NFL head coaches. With the termination bonanza known as "Black Monday" approaching after this week's slate of games, it's time to speculate on which coaches will lose their jobs. First, it was reported that Jets coach Todd Bowles would face the axe, and now, we might have another one.


While nothing is certain​ yet, the expectation around the league is that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will move on from head coach Dirk Koetter after Sunday's game against Atlanta, according to reports.

Koetter, who had head coaching stints in the college ranks at Boise State (1998-2000) and Arizona State (2001-2006), has been the head coach of Tampa Bay since the 2016 season. In three years, he's compiled a 19-28 record, losing double digit games both of the last two years after leading the Bucs to a surprising 9-7 record in 2016.


It appears t​​hat Koetter knows his time in Tampa is up, as he signed off his last weekly call-in show of the year by thanking Buccaneers fans for their time together, a poignant and telling sign of things to come.

While Koetter might not have had much success the last two years, he's still a good coach, and should get another crack at some point.​​ And if not? Hey, he's a pretty good offensive coordinator.
