TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Dirk Koetter will return to coach the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next year, despite the team’s losing record this season.

The Buccaneers missed the playoffs for the tenth straight year, going 4-11 this season with Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints left.

It will be Koetter’s third year as head coach for the Bucs.
