Did NOT see this coming! University of Southern Mississippi’s Head Football Coach Todd Monken was in the middle of contract negotiations with Southern Miss and it is a week and a half before National Signing Day. Tampa Bay announced during the #AFCChampionship game that Todd Monken would become their Offensive Coordinator and Wide Receivers coach.
Personally I am upset for Southern Miss, but professionally Southern Miss should’ve known that this was coming. Monkey will join forces with Buccaneers Head Coach Dirk Koetter again after he coached under him in Jacksonville. Monken has turned the Southern Miss college football program in three years and I just can’t imagine who they will hire to step in now. It has to be someone that has worked under Monken, but for now the Golden Eagles Fans have to wait and see.
