The Buccaneers fired coach Lovie Smith after just two seasons and to say Tampa Bay players were shocked would be an understatement.
Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David tweeted out the following immediately after the announcement: "WTF YO!!!! ... This is stupid, we can't even have a consistent coach, 3 coaches in 5 yrs ... Outside looking in, y'all wouldn't understand how great of a coach/person he is ... I guess yall got what you been asking for smh." David later deleted the tweets.
