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.
