Job security not on Raheem Morris' mind



The Bucs have lost five consecutive games and could fall substantially short of their 10-6 mark last season.

But coach Raheem Morris said his job security (or lack thereof) hasn’t been something he’s dwelled on.

“I am not an insurance salesman,” Morris cracked. “We coach football.”

He then added, “We are not in the business of being concerned about job security. They will call you up when they want you to go. They will let you know and you shake their hands and you walk out and you be proud of what you were able to accomplish and what you were able to do. My job right now is to go out there and win football games.

“We got five of them guaranteed left (and) I can’t wait to play them.”

Morris has one year remaining on his current contract. General manager Mark Dominik, meanwhile, received a four-year extension in April and is signed through the end of 2014.
