Report: Greg Schiano refers to pre-Schiano Bucs as 'laughingstock'
Greg Schiano continues to make friends around and outside the Buccaneers organization.
Greg Schiano, among those who ran off quarterback Josh Freeman in a display that reminded me of a coach trying to coach NFL players the same way he coached college players, continues to … well … I’m not really sure what the hell he’s trying to do here.
According to the Pewter Report, Schiano told suite ticket holders on Thursday that the team was a laughingstock before he arrived and that’s why he was hired.
Oh, and this.
Schiano said to season ticket holders this morning this "situation needed Greg Schiano."— Pewter Report (@PewterReport) October 3, 2013
In case you’ve missed it, that’s a third-person reference.
Just in case you’ve forgotten, the Buccaneers nearly agreed to terms with Chip Kelly to be their head coach before the now-Eagles coach rebuffed the organization and returned to coach for another year at Oregon. Yeah, Schiano wasn’t the team’s first choice.
And in case Schiano needs a reminder, here’s his career NFL win-loss percentage.
Now, just for comparison’s sake, here was the percentage of previous Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris.
So, um yeah, Morris’ actually is better. Pretty funny for a laughingstock, right?
