Buccaneers fire OC Byron Leftwich

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have fired offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich.

The Bucs went 8-9 this season, winning the NFC South, but fell well short of  expectations, finishing with a 31-14 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round of the playoffs.

It’s not yet known whether this will impact Tom Brady’s decision to return to Tampa Bay, move to a different team, or retire altogether. Brady is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
