Mandatory Credit: Douglas Jones-USA TODAY SportsThe Bucs’ locker room is not splintered, nor is it fractured. It’s obliterated. A Hall of Fame-caliber player like Darrelle Revis seemingly pining for the comparative functionality of a historically dysfunctional organization like the Jets indicates an irreparable problem.
 
Schiano met with the Glazers last Friday and is still the team’s coach. How long that’s going to last depends on how much worse the situation gets, if it can get worse. What would probably be best for Schiano is that the Bucs fire him before the season ends so he can be hired for a college coaching job and get started on recruiting. If his heart is set on coaching in the NFL, he’ll have to rebuild his reputation and find an explanation for what’s happened in Tampa. This current job is a total loss and the sooner that’s accepted, the better for everyone involved.
