It would appear that Tampa Bay Buccaneers pro personnel director, Doug Williams now has a tough decision to make, does he stay in the NFL or does he jump back to college and renew his coaching career. According to Rick Stroud, of the St. Petersburg Times Williams has been offered a one-year contract extension to remain with the team in 2010. With reports late last week swirling that he has interviewed with Southern University for there vacant head coaching spot it would appear Williams in a tough economic climate is in a solid position.
But with the CBA set to expire after the 2010 season and the potential for a lock out in 2011. His thought process might be to except the job at Southern for job security reasons.
However, this is the first sign that head coach Raheem Morris might be coming back for 2010. Why else would the team offer to extend Williams? Surely they would not extend Williams this week, just to fire him next week. If the Glazer’s did not already have an idea that they are bring back Morris.
Of course, the other possibility is that they already know Williams is going to except the job at Southern and are merely making a PR move to give the fan base the warm and fuzzes, with everything that has come out recently in regards to Williams demise within the organization. Couple that with leaking sensational journalism about Williams being more of a hindrance than a help to the team, wasn’t really being swallowed by the majority of the public.
