Fair Or Foul : Lovie Smith

 

Lovie Smith was named head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for his 31st year of coaching, after having spent nine seasons as the head coach of the Chicago Bears (2004-12). While with the Bears, Smith amassed a record of 81-63 (.563 win pct.), including three division titles, two NFC Championship Game appearances (2006 and 2010) and a berth in Super Bowl XLI. The AP Coach of the Year in 2005, Smith becomes one of only eight active NFL head coaches with at least 80 victories, and his 81 wins with Chicago are the third-most in Bears history.

Smith was fired after his 2nd season. Many blame the struggles of Defense on Smith , however they finished 10th in Defense , and was led by a Rookie QB. Was the firing fair or foul.
