Buccaneers Fired Head Coach Raheem Morris

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- After a disappointing 4-12 season, including 10 straight losses to end the year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have fired head coach Raheem Morris.

This time last season, the Buccaneers were considered an up and coming team after going 10-6 and just missed the playoffs under Morris. Expectations were high for the team as well as Morris, but the team struggled mightily on both offense and defense.

"We want to thank Coach Morris for all of his hard work and dedication as head coach of the Buccaneers," Bucanneers co-chairman Joel Glazer said in a statement.

In three seasons as the Buccaneers head coach, Morris went 17-31.

Buccaneers Host Bears in London (TEST TEST TEST)

(LONDON) -- The (4-2) Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be making their second appearance in the NFL International Series game in London on Sunday.  They'll be the home team hosting the (3-3) Chicago Bears. 

The last time the Buccaneers made the trip to London was in 2009 against the New England Patriots, they enjoyed the trip but not the 35-7 loss at Wembley Stadium.  Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris said, "We're road warriors, you go on the road and you have to go play.  We're out in London and enjoying the people, the town, and everything that is going to happen."

Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher admitted he didn't really know anything about the London culture, "I'm so not cultured when it comes to that stuff.  I'm going to have fun in my room I guess watching TV."

Kickoff is set for 1 PM Eastern Time.
