Schiano tells Bucs players they’re stuck with him


As the Buccaneers prepare to head to Seattle in Week Nine before welcoming the Dolphins and the spotlight of Monday Night Football to Tampa in Week 10, the status of coach Greg Schiano remains murky.

According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, Schiano told the team that he met with owners at some point after Thursday night’s loss to the Panthers. Per Glazer, Schiano also told the players that they are stuck with him.

The question is for how long? Some believe that Schiano could be bounced after the inevitable thumping in Seattle. Otherwise, the organization will suffer a potentially enormous national embarrassment the following Monday night, when plenty of fans don’t show up and those who do continue to express loudly their opinion that Schiano should be fired.

The Bucs have shown in the past a propensity to make changes when changes aren’t expected. With Schiano, change will likely remain expected until it happens.
