The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are near and dear to Jon Gruden’s heart, but by the sounds of it he upset the teams head coach.  In the game on Monday, Jon Gruden said this about Jameis Winston, after Winston threw a pretty ugly pass.

“I think coach Koetter lost confidence in Winston after he forced the ball into a double zone,” Gruden said on the national ESPN broadcast as Aguayo trotted out onto the field.

According to Pewter Report’s Mark Cook, the Buccaneers coach responded taking a shot at Jon Gruden.

“That wasn’t a lack of confidence,” Koetter said. “Again, when analysts say stuff like that, that’s like – when Jon (Gruden) was coaching and someone said that about him, you know what he’d be standing up here saying? ‘That guy doesn’t know what I’m thinking or anything about my team.’ He gets paid to talk on T.V. I get paid to coach the Bucs.”

I know when Gruden reads this it will sting a little, but Dirk is right on this one.
