RAHEEM MORRIS 17-31 The Bucs' eighth head coach was appointed in January 2009 to succeed Jon Gruden. He had only a month earlier been promoted to defensive co-ordinator following Monte Kiffin's resignation to coach at the University of Tennessee. Never played in the NFL but after spending time coaching at his alma mater, Hofstra, found himself as a defensive quality coach for the Buccaneers in their Super Bowl season and then through the 2005 season. Had a season as Defensive Co-ordinator at Kansas State before returning to the Bucs to coach the defensive backs in 2007. His first NFL season was a tough one losing his first seven games before beating the Packers in the Throwback Game in November 2009 and ending the season with a 3-13 mark. But 2010 was a remarkable turnaround and Raheem received much consideration for the NFL Coach of the Year award in leading the Bucs to a 10-6 mark. But the 2011 season fell apart after a promising 4-2 start and Raheem was relieved of his duties the day after the season finale in Atlanta, a game that saw the Bucs finish with 10 straight defeats. His time will be seen as a popular one with his players but just too inexperienced at this stage in his career to be a successful NFL head coach. He remains one of the nicest most genuine people I have ever come across in the game. He moved on to a variety of assistant coaching roles with the Atlanta Falcons and after the firing of Dan Quinn in October 2020, was named the interim head coach. He then went on to become Defensive Co-ordinator of the Los Angeles Rams and won a Super Bowl ring with them in the 2021 season.
