As some parts of the NFL world looks towards the 2023 NFL season, the Buccaneers could have some coaching changes on the horizon.
Times change quickly in the NFL. At the end of last season, it seemed like Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich was a lock to get the job as the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
That deal fell through and the Bucs seemed lucky to keep the offensive coordinator that had been with them for the historic Super Bowl run, but some fans would see it differently now.
Leftwich has arguably been one of the weakest parts of this struggling team in 2022, but that doesn’t seem like it is going to stop him from garnering some interest as a head coach based on his age and his attachment to one of the best offenses in NFL history.
Will someone actually give Leftwich a head coaching job after what they have seen from this offense? It seems impossible, but I guess nothing is ever really off the table in this crazy league.
Leftwich actually being able to get a job and leaving Tampa would be one of the best things that could happen for Todd Bowles and the Bucs.
The Bucs would get someone new to fill the role that would bring a fresh perspective and hopefully spice up the painfully-bland offense, and Todd Bowles wouldn’t end up having to fire a guy that he coached alongside for the last few years and bowing to the fanbase.
The situation would be a major win-win for both parties, it would just take someone silly enough to make a decision like this. Who knows, perhaps Leftwich still has some supporters out there.
One thing is for certain; if Byron Leftwich really does want a head coaching opportunity, this offense is going to have to look a whole lot better down the final stretch.
