He was followed by Jon Gruden who was the Bucs coach from 2002-2008, 7 years, .513 win percentage, three division titles, one conference Championship, one Super Bowl.
- 2002 -- 12-4
- 2003 -- 7-9
- 2004 --5-11
- 2005 -- 11-5
- 2006 -- 4-12
- 2007 -- 9-7
- 2008 -- 9-7 (loosing the final 4 of the year)
So...... I might be wrong.
Gruden's tenure w/ TB is a perfect example of just how lucky Kubiak has been to work for Uncle Bob.
Here's another former HC's records for one team before he was ultimately fired:
Any guesses on who led his team to these records before being dismissed? Try Wade Phillips in Arlington for the answer. Just another example of a HC who failed to meet the expectations but has obviously outperformed Kubiak as a HC. Wade is a constant reminder to Kubiak on just how lucky he has been because I believe had he been in any other town w/ any other owner kubiak would most definitely would've already been an OC as opposed to being a HC. Others have been fired despite accomplishing more. No doubting that.
