Default Shanny to Tampa??!!?? (Raheem Morris got the job)

GRUDEN GONE!
Posted by Mike Florio on January 16, 2009, 5:56 p.m.
The city that will be hosting the Super Bowl in 16 days suddenly is in the market for a new head coach.

According to Adam Schefter of NFLN, the Buccaneers have fired head coach Jon Gruden.

(Maybe, in hindsight, he should have taken the Tennessee job.)

There had been some quiet speculation that something could happen in Tampa, but with nearly three weeks since the last game Gruden had seemed safe.

The timing of the move makes us wonder whether the Bucs quietly have lined up a successor, with speculation sure to center on a guy who took two weeks off after unexpectedly being fired two weeks and three days ago, former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan.

Such a move would violate the Rooney Rule, which requires at least one minority candidate to be interviewed for each head-coaching vacancy. But if everyone involved is appropriately discreet, no one would have to know that someone like Shanahan already was lined up for the job.

It remains to be seen whether G.M. Bruce Allen stays or goes, since he was hired after Gruden arrived.

More to come, undoubtedly.

Add Tampa to the list of supposed Shanny destinations........

ALLEN GONE, TOO

Posted by Mike Florio on January 16, 2009, 5:57 p.m. EST

The Buccaneers have officially announced the termination of head coach Jon Gruden.

And they’ve also fired G.M. Bruce Allen.

“We will be forever grateful to Jon for bringing us the Super Bowl title, and we thank Bruce for his contributions to our franchise,” said Buccaneers co-chairman Joel Glazer in a team-issued release. “However after careful consideration, we feel that this decision is in the best interest of our organization moving forward.”

The departure of both men puts the Bucs immediately in play for either a new G.M. and head coach or a new coach who’ll have full power over the personnel office.

And the Bucs are an attractive options. They’re scheduled to be $45 million under the cap for 2009. Just last week, Allen seemed to commit that ownership would spend the entire cap surplus in the coming year.

I hate these stupid ass speculation threads... people act like feminine women around here, gossiping about bull****.

Well I guess it's what I should expect when people believe everything is about heart.

I'd say this is a pretty done deal. Kinda wish it had happened earlier. Wouldn't have minded bringing Gruden in for an interview.

Gruden is mostly known for the offense right? If so, I'd much much rather bring him in as the OC and keep bringin in more ex-HC's

Imagine if that Jake Plummer trade to Tampa would have actually gone through and Jake had not retired was in fact starting QB for the Bucs....

That would be so hilarious....

Shanahan would take it just to be reunited with Griese.

That is the only thing that makes any sense. Why fire a coach 2 weeks after the season. All the best coaching candidates have been hired, and assistants are getting lined up. If not to hire Shanny, then why do it. Gruden and the GM were fingercuffing the owners daughter?

Just this evening on WFAN-NY I heard Mike Francesa say he expects Shanahan to be hired in Dallas as some point this offseason.

When thinking of the next place of Shanahan, I figured Tampa. However, I thought it was going to be next season, not this season. Hope it works out for him.

Francesa has been talking about the Shanny/Dallas rumor since he was fired. I don't think he has any concrete info and it just guessing since they have the offense and defense.

He did say today that he thinks Jerry Jones wants Garrett to be hired by STL so he will be off the hook for all that money he just gave him and will make it easier to fire Phillips or demote him to DC. This is what Francesa saying and he thinks who he is and isn't always right.

Shanahan would be a great fit in TB. They REALLY need QB and WR but they have a real defense and ST's. He could be GM and Coach. Plus, he could get back to FL.

I think this is just the RIGHT opportunity at the right time for Shanahan. IF he wants to coach next year, would you take TB or the STUPID CHIEFS!

Hello Mike Shanahan - I'm taking bets on this one.
