The Buccaneers issued in essence a vote of confidence on coach Raheem Morris late Monday night, with a statement from owner Joel Glazer expressing “confidence” in the path Morris is on.

However, as we have been reporting, the Bucs reached out to Bill Cowher late in the season and have made an effort to secure his services.

Tampa Bay, however, has been unwilling to pay above the $5-6 million range for Cowher, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. There are also concerns about how much the team would be able to spend on players. That has blocked a deal to this point; should some of those parameters change, things could get interesting.

Cowher has also had contact from the Bills — one report from Western New York says Cowher will meet with team officials today — but some close to Cowher would be surprised if he went there. However, Cowher to the Bills should not be ruled out if Ralph Wilson makes an offer in the upper-echelon of coaching contracts.

Tampa Bay, Chicago, Houston and Carolina were the four teams Cowher was targeting should there be openings, but none of those are vacant and most likely will not be. While there is some uncertainty about the labor situation in 2011, the market could end up being more conducive to Cowher’s desires, with Chicago and Houston again with coaches entering the season under scrutiny, for instance.

Regardless, recent reports that Cowher had cooled his interest in coaching in 2010 are untrue, as he has been actively working on assembling a staff, weighing all options and receiving calls from teams.

sigh...Don't you just love our owners?  [banghead]

Did you really think the little leprechauns were going to pay a Cowher salary?  Once again they cheap out on us.

THANKS GLAZERS and when the team sucks next year, and they will I'll remember when we had a superbowl winner instead of a Turd at the helm.

Wait till they refuse to pay a top rookie salary. Want to see it come unglued? Wait till next year.

I've been saying to you guys for over a year now...the Glazers have become the new Culverhouse.

They dont want to spend money anymore. So forget about getting any big-name free agents.

And it is why Im done paying for high-priced season tickets.

Sounds like Cowher was trying to use the Bills to increase his asking price (seeing as they'd love to have him, but he's not really interested now that all the other teams have backed out from seeking him).

Glad we didn't fall for that at least.

honestly....  as a season ticket holder, youre best bet is to jump ship and root for the team at home or in a bar somewhere.   you wouldn't walk into Best Buy and spend top dollar on a used, inferior television that was broken the first day you bought it...  even if you bought that same tv every year since 1976!  So why drop thousands of dollars a year on this charade of a NFL football team?
Lame... i wish i lived in tampa i would take your season tickets..its about the team and the logo thats a higher power than anyone or group of people (glazers).

If true, that royally sucks. Either stand behind Morris and don't pursue any back channels, or fire Morris and get your guy. No in between.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

The sticking point isn't Cowher's salary demands but the limit on spending for players.  In a way that vindicates Gruden/Allen if this is true that they were handicapped.

I get the feeling that this will be another one of those things attributed to a random unknown source, not corroborated by any other sources, will never be really confirmed, but people on this board will quote for 1-2-3 years as fact.

And for Raheem/Dominik in an uncapped year they will have to rely on the draft to maximize the teams talent level.

In other words.....we're doomed.
