The Best Tampa Bay Bucs Coaches of All Time

Updated September 23, 2019 1.3k votes 325 voters 8.4k views12 items

Throughout their time as a football franchise since 1976 the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had a variety of coaches, but who is the best Tampa Bay Bucs head coach of all time? We want you to help us answer that question by voting for your favorite Buccaneers coaches, keeping stats like Super Bowl wins and playoff runs in mind.

There's only one Bucs coach who brought the team to the big game, and that is Mr. Jon Gruden, referred to as "Chucky" by Tampa fans because of his physical appearance and scary demeanor. He took the Bucs to the Super Bowl in 2002, defeating the Oakland Raiders 48-21. Tony Dungy also brought the Bucs to the playoffs several times in his coaching stint from 1996-2001, but wasn't able to win a championship. 

If the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a best of all time team, who would coach it? Vote for your favorites below, even  if the coach never won a championship with the Tampa Bay Bucs.
