Despite struggling in his first season, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris will return for another season according to a report from Buccaneer flagship station 620 WDAE.

Afternoon host Steve Duemig reported that in a conversation with the Bucs' head man, Morris revealed that he met with the owners of the Bucs, the Glazer family, this afternoon and he was told that he is safe for this season.

In addition, Morris and his coaching staff will be coaching in the Senior Bowl on January 30th.

This news flies in the face of a report by NFL Network's Jason La Canfora, who believes the Buccaneers could still be in play for former Steelers head coach Bill Cowher.

If Duemig's report is correct—and considering he works for the flagship station, there's no reason not to believe in its authenticity—then there will be some interesting times in Tampa Bay in regards to the disenfranchised fanbase.

As detailed in my column regarding Morris yesterday, the Glazers face severe backlash for maintaining the status quo.

With Morris apparently returning, we'll address later this week where the Bucs need to look this offseason, what potential free agency targets they should consider, and even talk a little draft.
