Bucs QB Winston says no friction with Koetter

Bucs QB Winston says no friction with Koetter

Jameis Winston is denying a report that a rift has developed with Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter.

"Obviously, a lot of stuff can come out when we're not doing as expected". The strain between Koetter and Winston is mostly derived from the latter's feeling that he was not "supported properly" by the coaching staff while forced to miss three games in November as the result of an injury to this throwing shoulder. Lovie Smith was sacked as coach after Winston's rookie season in 2015, and ownership replaced him with Koetter, in part because of the relationship he had forged with the quarterback as Tampa Bay's offensive coordinator. Head Coach Dirk Koetter's team enters Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions at 4-8, a whopping four games in the win column behind the Atlanta Falcons, which rank third-place in the rough-and-tumble NFC West. But another slow start, coupled with heaps of turnovers (three by Winston), consistently undermines the chance for the win.

After the game, Winston said these reports were not accurate. "First and foremost, I'm a strong believer in coaches coach and players play". "I think Jameis and I have an extremely consistent relationship and I don't think anything is different about it. I know the truth about out relationship". If Koetter and Winston can't turn the tide of losing the final three weeks, perhaps Bucs management will once again make a change.
