Bucs feel they're headed in right direction under Koetter

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Despite winning just five games and missing the playoffs for the 10th consecutive season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers feel they're progressing under Dirk Koetter.

Koetter is the coach the Bucs are betting on to help quarterback Jameis Winston realize his potential in 2018. That's a bit of a surprise considering ownership's lack of patience with predecessors hired to change the team's fortunes.

The Bucs have made four coaching changes during a decade-long playoff drought. Raheem Morris was fired after three seasons, while Greg Schiano and Lovie Smith exited with losing records after two years.
