With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers searching for a new offensive coordinator, one has to wonder what it’ll mean for the future of Kyle Trask with the Buccaneers.

With the firing of Bryon Leftwich, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers find themselves in need of an offensive coordinator. The Buccaneers had a plethora of problems offensively, and any sort of change was needed, whether Leftwich being fired was the right one or not.

With the Bucs about to bring in a new offensive coordinator, what becomes of Kyle Trask becomes a bigger mystery than it already was.

When the Buccaneers made the former Florida Gators quarterback their second-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, it was surmised that the team hoped he would eventually take the reigns from Tom Brady in the Bruce Arians-Byron Leftwich offense. Fast forward to the 2023 offseason (for the Bucs) and Arians’ job now belongs to Todd Bowles, Leftwich has been fired, and Brady is assumed done with Tampa Bay. All of this culminated after a, shall we say, a season that didn’t quite live up to expectations.

We don’t know if the new offensive coordinator will subscribe to the scheme of run the ball on first down then “chuck and duck” through the air that we’ve seen the last few years. That remains to be seen, and let’s not get it twisted, a lot of coaches share the blame for that system. We don’t even know if the new offensive coordinator will be an internal hire or someone they bring in.

Regardless, you’d like to think Trask was drafted due to the staff trusting his ability to throw given the system right? Sure, that makes sense on the surface, but it’s still another question in a long line that are stating this team in the face.

The future of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers remains unclear. That includes Kyle Trask as much as anyone, if not more.
