Bucs OC: Winston-Koetter relationship healthy

Todd Monken, the Buccaneers' offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach, was animated on Friday when discussing recent reports about the relationship between QB Jameis Winston and coach Dirk Koetter.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Bucs offensive coordinator Todd Monken: "I don't know what Jameis will be in five years. I have no idea what he'll be. But I'm not gonna put some sort of parameters on what he can be at age 23 and had a season where he's been banged up and fought his ass off to come back."

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

"If you don't care, you don't argue, if you don't argue, it doesn't matter." - Bucs offensive coordinator Todd Monken on Jameis Winston and Dirk Koetter. He likened it to a marriage.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

A very fired-up Bucs offensive coordinator Todd Monken said, "Nobody has Jameis' back more than Dirk [Koetter]." He believes any frustration for Jameis and Dirk is totally normal and the result of being 4-9.
