Buccaneers Fire Head Coach Greg Schiano, GM Mark Dominik
(NEW YORK) — After two seasons, Greg Schiano’s time in the pros could be coming to an end as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced on Monday that they’ve let their head coach go, as well as general manager Mark Dominik.
Before coming to the NFL, Schiano had spent 11 seasons as the head coach at Rutgers University. He failed to find the same success at the NFL level that he had on the college ranks.
In two seasons in Tampa, Schiano went 11-21. After initial success in his first season, the team has steadily declined. Since Week 12 of last season, the Buccaneers have gone 5-17, which is tied for the worst record in the NFL during that time.
Meanwhile, Dominik had been the Buccaneers general manager since 2009.
Buccaneers co-chairman Bryan Glazer released a statement about letting Dominik go, saying, “The results over the past two years have not lived up to our standards and we believe the time has come to find a new direction. Mark has been a valued member of our organization for two decades and we respect the passion he showed for the Buccaneers during his time here.”
