ORLANDO, Fla. - Local 6 Sports Director David Pingalore has learned through multiple NFL sources that Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris will be fired after the team plays their final regular season game against the Atlanta Falcons Sunday.
The Bucs are currently 4-11 and riding a 9 game losing streak. The Bucs finished last season with a 10-6 record.
Pingalore was told that the Bucs wanted to fire Morris five weeks ago, but with Morris also serving as defensive coordinator, there was no one qualified to take over the heading coaching duties.
Morris recently told reporters, "I'll be the first person, when this thing is done on Monday, when we come in here, raise my hand and say, 'You guys can absolutely put this season on me.' Now, let's find a way to make it better."
The 36-year-old head coach has been in charge for the past three seasons.
Pingalore's sources said the Glazer family has grown weary of Morris hanging out with players off the field and that he has lost a majority of the team's respect.
