Raheem Morris Coaching Future: Buccaneers Coach Focused On Football

Raheem Morris' future with the Buccaneers organization is shaky at best, but according to Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times, Morris isn't concerned with his future, and is focused instead on football.

"I know there's a cloud outside the organization,'' Morris said. "But when you come into this building, there's a bunch of rays of sunshine. You see these guys and how they react to each other and how they play. You guys make it gloomy and doomy for us, but we do our best to keep rain away"

Morris also understands why the heat has come down on him and the coaching staff following their breakout year last year and their disappointing season this year.

It's pretty much the same staff. We went out there and won 10 games. Everybody loved us. This year, we came out and we're not having the same success, we're not as good. so obviously, it starts with the coaches, it goes to players and then it goes to management. That's how it works in this business. It's something we grew up doing, we trained that way. For those who are given a lot, a lot is expected. It's just the nature of the beast we live in.''
