After the Buccaneers were dominated Thursday by the Panthers, dropping Tampa Bay to 0-7 on the season, there were whispers that coach Greg Schiano actually could be in danger of losing his job on Friday.
Obviously, Schiano hasn't been fired (yet), but Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported that Schiano met with the Glazer family, the Buccaneers owners, on Friday. Afterward, Schiano reported to the Buccaneers locker room that he was still the Tampa Bay coach.
As you know by now, the season has been a disaster for Schiano and the Buccaneers, particularly with the drawn-out Josh Freeman controversy and the way it was handled, the trio of MRSA scares, and the fact the squad has lost 12 of its last 13 games.
CBS Sports' Boomer Esiason also weighed in on the Schiano tenure on The NFL Today.
Right now Coach Schiano has a major perception problem says @7BOOMERESIASON— CBS Sports PR (@CBSSportsGang) October 27, 2013
Of course, this isn't to say that Schiano won't be fired this season -- or sometime very soon if Tampa Bay doesn't start winning games. But for now, Schiano still has a job.
