A little more than three years ago, when the NFL’s coaching staff was on the verge of losing its NFL license, the league decided to re-examine the business of coaching.
The decision to look at the business was a logical one given the fact that the football franchise had already been sold and that the NFL has since been the subject of numerous lawsuits.
In addition, the NFL had been unable to find a replacement for its head coach, Tom Coughlin, due to a knee injury sustained in a 2011 preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Now, the coaching business is back in the news again after the NFL announced on Tuesday that it had reached a deal to acquire former Florida coach Jim McElwain, a deal that was announced after the three-time national champion Buccaneers were awarded a new franchise in 2019.
The deal was finalized at the end of October.
Under the terms of the agreement, McEl wan to remain in Tampa until 2022.
Under terms of an agreement with McEl, the Buccaneers will retain the rights to his name and likeness for six years.
“We’ve worked very closely with Jim to get the right fit and a new coach and we’re excited to be able to bring him back,” Buccaneers owner Stephen Ross said in a statement.
“The team will be better served with a coach with more experience than he ever had and will be more prepared for success in the NFL.”
McEl has spent the last three seasons in Tampa, where he has coached three different teams and has compiled a 534-174 record.
He has been a part of the Buccaneers’ playoff run in each of his three seasons.
The Bucs have never won more than nine games in a season, a mark that has never been matched by any other team in the league.
McEl won a Super Bowl ring in 2009.
In the deal, McVickers will also be paid $1.9 million in base salary and $1 million per year in incentives.
McVicks will become the third coach to be acquired by the NFL in the last five years, joining New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg in 2017 and former Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid in 2018.
McIlwain is one of the most respected and respected men in the game.
The former Heisman Trophy winner was one of seven coaches to win five consecutive Super Bowls from 2011-17.
The Buccaneers are still searching for a new head coach following the departure of head coach Lovie Smith.
The NFL has been investigating the allegations of sexual harassment against Smith since September, but the league is not expected to file charges in the case, which is ongoing.
“I feel very good about what we have achieved and what we are accomplishing with our players and coaches and I am confident that we will have a strong, successful football team for a long time,” McEl said in his statement.
McCullins first coaching job lasted two seasons in Miami.
In 2014, he led the Dolphins to a 10-6 record and a No. 2 ranking in the AFC.
In 2015, the Dolphins hired him to replace coach Dan Campbell, who was fired in May after the team finished 7-9 and was ranked 21st in the playoff race.
In 2016, McCills Dolphins team reached the AFC championship game and was knocked out in the wild-card round by the Buffalo Bills.
The Dolphins are 11-6 in McCULLINS second year as coach.
In his first season with the Dolphins, the team went 8-8.
McCoats team went 4-12.
In 2017, the 49ers took a step forward in the playoffs when they went 9-7 and won the NFC West.
McCollins team has won two consecutive AFC West titles.
In 2018, the Bears lost in the divisional round to the Seattle Seahawks.
In 2019, the Eagles won the Super Bowl with McCollins teams offense.
In 2020, the Chargers lost in overtime to the Washington Redskins in a rematch of the 2015 Super Bowl.
In 2021, the Broncos lost to the New York Giants in a wild-cards game.
In 2022, the Packers won the championship with McCools defense.
In 2024, the Steelers won the AFC North title with McCoates defense.
McConnaughton’s first year with the 49ERS was an emotional one for the 49er’s players.
They lost to a young Colts team led by Aaron Rodgers in Super Bowl LI.
After the loss, quarterback Colin Kaepernick said, “The game of football is the most important thing to me and I just feel like we’re all really disappointed with the outcome of the game.”
Kaepernick also said the players were disappointed with a lack of coaching at the helm of the 49ERs roster.
After a season in which the 49 players received a total of just $1,000 in salary for the year, the Niners announced on Monday that they had reached an agreement to purchase the team.
