In his latest Monday Morning Quarterback column, Peter King of Sports Illustrated interviewed Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter in his “Four Questions” segment.
They touched on topics ranging from Koetter’s meticulous approach on coaching – “I have a 150-page book that outlines every step of the program,” Koetter explained – to his relationship with Jameis Winston and how it, along with his input in the overall game plan, differs in his new role.
