Raheem Morris had a pretty good idea when he walked into a meeting with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers owners Monday he would not be leaving as their head coach.
One year after leading the Bucs to their biggest single-season turnaround in victories in club history, Morris and the Bucs entire coaching staff was fired Monday.
Morris said he was informed at 11:59 a.m. at a meeting with Bucs co-chairmen Bryan, Joel and Ed Glazer.
"It was the way we finished the season,'' Morris said. "The 10-game losing streak. You don't have that and survive in this league and we all know that. It is what it is, you have to be ready to deal.
"They blew it up. I have nothing bad to say about the Glazers, Mark (Dominik). The Glazers gave me a great opportunity and we almost pulled it off.''
