Fired Twice in the Same Year! Ouch!

Thursday morning, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Head Coach Raheem Morris pulled the plug on his Offensive Coordinator, Jeff Jagodzinski after only three preseason games. Incase you forgot, last January Jagodzinski was fired from his previous job, that of Head Football Coach at Boston College. Jags, as he’s commonly known, was dismissed when he interviewed for the New York Jets Head Coaching gig after being told he DID NOT have permission from his current employer. It was an ugly game of chicken played out in the media between Jags and BC Athletic Director Gene DeFilippo.

Now, only eight months later, Jagodzinski has yet again received another pink slip. Well… to be perfectly fair, he wasn’t really fired outright as much as replaced by Quarterbacks Coach Greg Olson. Apparently Jags was offered the chance to fill the open spot of Quarterbacks Coach, but wisely passed, knowing there was no way for him to safe face.

In one of the stranger tidbits to come out from this story is the fact that Jagodzinski, as Offesive Coordinator, didn’t even call his own plays, but deferred to Running Backs Coach Steve Logan. Seems he still thought of himself as the big cheese in some ways.

With Chan Gailey getting the axe earlier in the week and now Jags, makes one wonder who might be the next fall guy.

Suggestions, in the form of comments, are of course always welcome.
