    Byron Leftwich, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    Minority candidates don’t receive the same recognition as other coaches in today’s NFL, because opportunities are lacking on the offensive side of the ball.

    Byron Leftwich is one of only two African-American offensive coordinators (along with the Kansas City Chiefs’ Eric Bieniemy) in the league. Leftwich’s pedigree aligns perfectly with what many teams want in their next head coach, though; he simply needs more experience.

    The 39-year-old former NFL quarterback didn’t enter the professional coaching ranks until 2017. Mike McCoy’s midseason firing thrust Leftwich into the Arizona Cardinals’ offensive coordinator role after a year and a half as a quarterbacks coach.

    Bruce Arians hired Leftwich to serve as his coordinator with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Arians is grooming his protege to become an NFL head coach.

    “He’ll be a head coach early and fast,” Arians said after originally hiring Leftwich in Arizona, per NFL.com’s Chris Wesseling.

    Two years later, Arians brought Leftwich along to call plays and mentor quarterback Jameis Winston. Leftwich’s career will turn based on how he handles the 2015 No. 1 overall pick.

    “I have to learn him first. I have to learn Jameis. I have to learn how he thinks, how he executes, what he does well, what he maybe doesn’t do so well and then I have to get those things better as a whole,” Leftwich said, per Pro Football Talk’s Charean Williams.

    If Winston secures his status as a franchise quarterback by protecting the football and consistently making good decisions, Leftwich will be well on his way toward a head coaching opportunity. If the quarterback falters, his path becomes far more difficult to navigate.

    If Leftwich can break Winston of his bad habits, which Koetter couldn’t, he will quickly quell the angst many fans have expressed over his hiring. Getting Winston to trust his training instead of reverting to old instincts will be a tough task; an interesting season coming up for sure…

    Racism is nothing more than ” the belief that one’s own race is superior”. Where do you see anything of that nature in this post. Every time you post, you prove more and more how ignorant you really are.  You are a miserable and extremely insecure little bitch.

    Perhaps Boi sees this statement as his reason for calling the piece racist.  Identifying Leftwich as being AA before he’s even qualified (he hasn’t shown a bit of being qualfied to date as being a future HC) hints as some sort of reverse discrimination/racism perspective, if you ask me.   If he’s qualified, he’s qualified. Period.  Why bring up his race? It’s immaterial.

    Doesn’t this quote “Leftwich’s pedigree aligns perfectly with what many teams want in their next head coach”. Indicate he has shown some evidence of being some what qualified” “Though, he simply needs more experience” indicates what he needs to be fully qualified. Just like anyone else striving to reach the head coaching level.  So are you saying just mentioning the fact that he is a minority ( which everyone already knows) changes the situation some how?

    Again based on the actual definition of racism–what makes anything in the post scream racism?? What in it indicates a belief of superiority?

    Affirmative Action brings you gems like Raheem Morris.

    Well what brought these gems who also had low winning %.

    Raheem————— 354

    Leeman Bennet——–125

    Ray Perkins  ———–317

    Richard Williamson—-211

    Sam Wyche————–359

    Greg Schiano————349

    Affirmative Action had nothing to do with Raheem getting hired. Since the Glazers  still had to pay Gruden, they didn’t want to double dip and have to pay another top notch coach at the same time. Raheem was the scape goat & cheapest alternative. Everybody knew he wasn’t ready for that daunting challenge. But despite the fact that he wasn’t allowed to sign any free agents (  only coach in Bucs history that was totally restricted like that)–he still produced a 10 win season, the last one seen around here in quite a while.

    Dumbass, didn’t I say everybody knew Raheem wasn’t ready for that daunting challenge. And nobody even suggested that he is ready now. So your whole  “Theres a reason he doesnt have another HC gig, and its not his skin color” rant  is totally irrelevant.  You said Affirmative Action produced Raheem, I asked you what produced those other losers I listed. And you won’t answer that question. Why? Or is OK to be a loser with a worst record  just as long it is produced by whatever that other means is.

    By the way I don’t give a damn what you call me or what you say I showed my ass to be years ago. To be called a racist by a redneck with sheet over his head is an honor to me. So thank your hillbilly ignorant ass for that.

    The front office did not help Leftwich at all with no O’line or running back upgrades.
