If Koetter is to succeed, he’ll need help

It doesn't matter where a coach comes from.

It matters what sort of help he gets once he's here.

That's the part that has always been difficult for the Tampa Bay Bucs to fathom. They have hired former pro coaches, four of them. They have hired former college coaches, three of them. They have promoted from within, which is about to grow to  four times. They have hired a coordinator from another team, one of them.

Most of the time, it has failed.

Looks like Mike Smith is coming to help, or be the head coach in waiting…..

I’d like to see a defensive coordinator like Mike Smith, a former head coach that can help Koetter transition into his new position.
