Will Dirk Koetter survive 2018 season?
The Bucs knew Jason Pierre-Paul would help their pass rush when they traded for him. But he’s proved more than a pass rusher, taking on a leadership role with his words and his work ethic.
“Very pleasant surprise,” Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said, via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. “I guess I wasn’t expecting JPP to be the practice player and the leader that he’s been so far. Really fired up about it. Sometimes a guy that’s got his pedigree comes in and is looking for way out of drills and that’s not him at all.”
