Bucs players grumbling about “college” coachesWell, it was fun while it lasted.With a style that made him a successful as a college head coach and no reluctance to send packing any veterans who were deemed to be unable or unwilling to accept his “toes on the line!” tendencies, coach Greg Schiano lifted the Bucs into contention via four straight wins.But 6-4 has since yielded to four straight losses, culminating in a 41-0 blowout loss in the Bayou, to the Bucs’ NFC South rivals.And the frustration is showing. The incident between assistant coach Bryan Cox and linebacker Adam Hayward was public; privately, the grumbling has begun.“Can we send these coaches back to college?” one player said after the game.Schiano won’t be going back to college any time soon, and the fact that several of the assistants have NFL experience make them other than college coaches. But the reality is that Schiano’s college-style approach to grown men will work only if the team wins. When losing takes hold, NFL players will complain about college tactics.The question moving forward is whether Schiano will adjust his style, or whether he will continue to do things the way he sees fit, continuing to identify those who don’t like doing it his way — and sending them down the highway.Based on the way Schiano has handled the victory formation issue, we’re guessing it’s the latter. And it may work. But if the Bucs don’t win, eventually there may not be enough players left to field a team.
How is this any different than any other coach or any other style? Everyone needs to win or it goes South.
Only player that can come out with that garbage is someone who scored yesterday. Ohh wait...It's wasnt a college coach that threw 4 ints and it wasn't a college coach that got kicked to sleep by every wide out New Orleans had.

Hayward literally almost got into a fight with a coach yesterday. That can't happen. Obviously, at least yesterday, things derailed. It'll be interesting to see who is suspended, dropped or outed this week, given Schiano's style.

When I had seen it on Twitter, it kind of sounded like Cox was going after Hayward, but seeing later reports and stuff this morning, Hayward is the one that went after Cox.Will definitely be interesting to see how things get handled.
