Dirk Koetter Will Still Call Plays


The man who guided the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ attack to a record output in 2015 will still be leading the offensive charge in 2016 and beyond. That man, of course, was Offensive Coordinator Dirk Koetter, who was promoted to head coach on Friday. During his introductory press conference, Koetter provided some clarity on who will be in command of the offense on game day now that he’s moving from the coaches’ booth down to the sideline. “Roles are going to have to be juggled around a little bit, but there’s already a model that exists in the NFL for the head coach as the play-caller,” said Koetter. “I will continue to be the play-caller for the Bucs. There’s a lot of hard work that goes into football, and one of my favorite parts of football is the strategy and the game-management part, the play-calling part. I think I’d be foolish to give that up.”
