Though Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris received nothing but praise after his team's 10-6 2010 season, now that the Bucs are 4-11 and have lost their last nine games in a row, he's on the hottest of hot seats.
Should team management feel that it's time to move on from Morris—though he's only held the position since 2009—making an offer to Bill Cowher might be a smart move.
Morris, who serves as Tampa Bay's head coach and defensive coordinator, has assembled a young team of playmakers who lack leadership and focus. At 35 years old, Morris is himself young and may need to step back into a coordinator position for a few more seasons before being experienced enough to be a successful long-term head coach.
Cowher is a veteran with 22 years of coaching experience to his name, including 14 years as the head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers. He's a leader, a disciplinarian and is capable of molding young players in just a short time.
Cowher is just what the Buccaneers need and the Buccaneers suit him, too. They're a defensive-minded team with a quarterback not unlike the Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger, and they have a fairly hands-off GM.
If the Buccaneers come calling, it would be smart for Cowher to consider their offer.
