With the inconsistent Bucs recently becoming consistently bad, a question has surfaced regarding whether the team can sever ties with coach Raheem Morris after the season, with no buyout or other financial penalty.
The folks at JoeBucsFan.com suggested last week that the Glazer family can opt out of the deal after 2011, notwithstanding widespread reports that the Glazers exercised a two-year option on Morris after the 2010 season. The subject came up during my weekly Tuesday visit with Steve Duemig of WDAE in Tampa, and Duemig seemed to suggest that he’s also heard talk of a post-2011 opt out.
A source with knowledge of the situation has since advised PFT that Morris is under contract through 2012. (Duemig has since been told the same thing, possibly by the same source.)
