Tampa Bay Buccaneers Head Coach Greg SchianoThe Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 0-7. They’ll likely be 0-8 with a road trip to Seattle next week. Fans were chanting “fire the coach” at the end of Thursday night’s 31-13 loss to the Carolina Panthers and billboards have been put up around Tampa Bay calling for Greg Schiano’s firing.

The hot seat for Schiano appears to be increasing in temperature by the day. However, Schiano says he can’t pay attention to the noise surrounding his job status with the Buccaneers.

“It doesn’t affect me,” Schiano said. “People are certainly entitled to their opinion. Here’s the thing, my whole career – player and a coach – you get up in the morning, you work as hard and as smart as you can. It usually puts you to bed tired and you get up and you do it again and that’s the way I do it. I do it the best we can.
