Tampa Bay Bucs Fire Offensive Coordinator: Good Bet

The Tampa Bay Bucs season is already looking dismal.  Sure the oddsmakers at SBG Global have made the Bucs a -135 favorite to win OVER 5 ½ regular season games in 2009, but the UNDER 5 ½ potentially paying out $105 for every $100 bet is looking mighty good about now.

In a stunning move 10 days before the start of the regular season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have dismissed offensive coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski.

 

The Bucs announced the move in a statement Thursday morning and said quarterbacks coach Greg Olson will take over as coordinator.

"We needed more direction," Bucs coach Raheem Morris said in an early-afternoon news conference. "We needed more precision. [We weren't] getting it at the time, so you make the change."

But with just a few days before the start of the 2009 NFL season, this type of move can potentially throw the team in disarray.

Gambling911.com does not consider Tampa Bay a team likely to win the NFC South division, hence, we are focused primarily on the regular season win totals betting offered at SBG Global.

A team source said conflict had been building since early in training camp over coaches and players not agreeing with Jagodzinski's coaching philosophies and teaching methods.

"This guy was better suited to be a head coach than a coordinator," the team source said. The source also said Jagodzinski was not calling plays in the preseason. That responsibility fell to running backs coach Steve Logan, who was Jagodzinski's offensive coordinator at Boston College.

Byron Leftwich is set to start as quarterback for the Bucs.
