In surprising news, the Buccaneers have declined the huge opportunity to coach at the Senior Bowl.
On Monday night, Bucs general manager Jason Licht said on the Buccaneers Radio Network that the Bucs main goal is to build their team through the draft. Turning down the opportunity to coach and get a hands-on evaluation of draft-eligible players in the Senior Bowl consisting of the best seniors college football has to offer is inexcusable for a franchise that was 2-14.
While some might believe it is solely because the Bucs are searching for a new offensive coordinator, the team that replaced them, the Jaguars, are also in search for a new offensive coordinator.
The only reason the Buccaneers might have to turn down a golden opportunity like this would be if major changes to the Bucs' organization are on the way. At minimum, I believe there might be multiple jobs on both sides of the ball that might need to be filled in the coming weeks.
The teams with the worst records who retain their head coach are "rewarded" with the opportunity to coach in the Senior Bowl. After a 2-14 season and now turning down this opportunity, there is reason to be concerned that the Bucs are just a poorly run organization, and that we need to just accept that.
