pit's ask a lawyer day at fox 13. pnumbers to call will be at the pbottom of the screen. pit's free. pthat's the best part. pfirst we need the forecast from pdave. p>>dave: a lot of cloud cover pthis morning. psun will be up in 22 minutes or pso. p56 degrees, we've been steady pbecause of all that cloud cover. pand i want to say low fog. plook at the visibility, half pmile or so. pwe will get a little sunshine pfor today. psomething we didn't see a lot of pyesterday afternoon at all so ptake that 55 degrees and bring pit back in the 70s. plooks like a shower possible ptomorrow and again on saturday. phowever, second half of the pweekend looks nice. pall the details in a few pminutes. plet's check the roadways this pthursday morning. p>>vanessa: and the most serious pcrash we're experiencing this pmorning for folks just waking up pwith us is the deadly pedestrian pcrash. pwe have a live look now. pthis is fletcher and this is in pthe intersection with bruce b pdowns boulevard.
7:02 am
resence out here. edestrian involved crash. pthe pedestrian has passed away. pyou can expect extended road pclosures, especially in the pwestbound direction. pwestbound traffic is being pdiverted. palso seeing some eastbound pdelays. palternate up here, fowler pavenue, more information to come pas we get it. p>>russell: thanks. pwe are starting with some really pstunning news. pthe bucs are moving on without plovie smith. pthe team fired the head coach pafter losing pfox 13 sports anchor is here to ptell us why and who could be his preplacement. p>>reporter: good morning. pthis is going to be a swift psearch. pglazers did not make this psurprising move without knowing pwho they're going to replace him pwith and i don't see them going pany other way that dirk cutter. plovie is 8-24 record and really pthe fear of losing an offensive pcoordinator.
7:03 am
pleague and in one year made them pthe top five offense. plovie smith was given just two pyears, not a lot of time for pturning things around. pthis was a struggling franchise. pif you compare wins of other pfirst year bucs numbers, the pnumbers aren't good. pat no point did smith even get pthis team to the 500 mark during phis career. pbucs co-chairman glazer put his ost on the team website last pnight. pit reads, after careful pconsideration, we informed lovie pthat we've decided to make a pchange. pi want to thank lovie for his phard work and dedication during phis time year. pthis decision was a difficult pone on a variety of levels. pi'm disappointed that we were pnot more successful these past ptwo seasons, but we're committed pto doing what is necessary to pgive our fans a winning team pthey deserve.
7:04 am
pmanager jason light will oversee pthe process for finding our next phead coach. pwho that's going to be, i'm psaying it's dirk cutter. pthat's the direction the bucs pwill be turning to. pfirst they have to satisfy the prule by interviewing an pafrican-american coach but pultimately, they will land on pcutter. phe's going to be the next head pcoach. pcutter really has a terrific prelationship with jameis winston pand that's the one player, and peveryone knows, that everyone pcenters around. pcutter was a head coach at boise pstate and arizona state before pmoving into the nfl as an poffensive coordinator with pjacksonville, atlanta and coming pto the bucs in 2014. pjust a couple of weeks ago, pcutter was asked if he's pinterested in becoming a head pcoach in the nfl. p>> can you imagine if i had to panswer all the questions of the phead coach, how pissed off i
7:05 am
pcall out the media in phoenix pand ask them. pi was fortunate enough to be phead coach for nine years in two pdifferent schools and high pschool coach at one time in my plife. pthat was fun. pi have a great job. pi have the greatest job in the pworld. pi love working with coach smith pand the offensive staff and we phave a fantastic group of layers that are excited about pour long-term future. pyou know, you don't control pthat. pwe're trying to do the best job pwe can right for you. p>>reporter: koetter, it's a pchange in lovie smith. plovie smith dry, laid back, pconservative type of coach. pkoetter just lays it out there. phe tells it like it is and preally, that's what's been great pin covering him. pyou know you're going to get an phonest opinion, one that maybe phe shouldn't be saying but he pdoes and people, i think, prespect that. pthis is really why koetter is pthe logical choice to replace
7:06 am
pbucs went from 30th to fifth in ptotal offense. pthey were 17th in the league pthis season for passing yards pand fifth in rushing. pnow, both were major pimprovements from a year ago but pthe bucs offense said they had pto adjust to the sudden loss of pthe offensive koord coordinate or coordinator. pquarterback's coach had called pthe plays for that season. pit was a complete mess. pbucs were 17th in passing, 29th pin rushing offense. pjust two years ago. pnow, a lot of people thought plovie smith would help the pdefense improve. pwhile it might not seem likely, phe actually did, when it comes pto yards allowed, the bucs pdefense gave up fewer -- 30 pfewer yards this past season pthan a year ago. p15 fewer yards in passing. pnot a whole lot in nearly 15 pfewer yards rushing per game. pthey also had two more sacks pthan they did in 2014. pnot a drastic improvement. roblem is, this defense was pultimately ranked 10th in the pleague which sounds great but
7:07 am
pleague in points allowed and pthat's the category that you preally need to look at. pthere's been a lot of twitter preactions. pbuccaneer linebacker davidson, a ptweet out saying this is stupid. pwe can't even have a consistent pcoach. pthree coaches in five years. poutside looking in, you all punderstand -- wouldn't punderstand how great a coach or erson he is and i guess you all pgot what you've been asking for. pthere's been a lot of criticism pduring the year from fans pwanting lovie smith to be fired pand ultimately that's what he's psaying. phe later took down his tweets, pthough. pbrandon myers sent out a tweet. pdirk has been the man since he pcame through the door. pand former buck nears pquarterback shawn king said, ponly in america can morris get pthree years to fix the bucs and plovie smith only two. retty telling right there. phe really is respected around pthe league, lovie smith is, and pi know steve who works for the pnfl network said that you have
7:08 am
roblem for what's going on here pin tampa bay because they've pjust now fired lovie smith, tony pdungy and john gruden. pso coming up in the next half phour, we'll look at the few pother names the glazers could pconsider but i'll tell you, it's pgoing to be dirk koetter. p>>laura: bucs have gone three pthree coaches. pmorris was the immediate preplacement. phe spent three seasons here. pgreg shianna was after that, pthen lovie smith, eight wins, 24 plosses during the last two pyears. pbut he seems to have improved pand i think that's what has peverybody talking this morning. pdespite the record, after all pthe team did a lot this season, pdidn't they? pwinning four more games than pthey did last year. pfox 13 alcides segui is getting psome reaction on this.
7:09 am
pfacebook earlier this morning. pwe did get some feedback for psome of our viewers. pthis person says they don't pthink he had enough time. phe needed at least two more pyears. panother person says, i don't plike him. pbut we are becoming the coach of pthe week franchise. psomeone else says that's pterrible. psomeone else says that's sad. pand then just when i was pconsidering season tickets. phorrible decision. pso it seems like the majority of pthe folks on facebook not pagreeing the glazers' move to pdismiss coach lovie smith. pit will be interesting to see pwhere he goes next. pa short time ago, i actually pspoke with one of the coaches at pjesuit. pinteresting perspective, what he phad to say. plisten in. p>> i thought he was a good pcoach. pi don't know what they're going pto do. pyou know, i hate to see a coach plose their job. pi just hope they don't -- what pthey have coming up, you know,
7:10 am
pwho they're going to hire after pthis. p>>reporter: there are talks it pcould be dirk koetter. p>> i think what he did with pjameis and the offense was pgreat. pi think he's a good leader. p>>reporter: so people are pfrustrated that the glazers -- i psay most people are frustrated pthe glazers moved away from plovie smith and it will be very pinteresting to see what the next pstep is for the franchise. pkevin is going to continue pfollowing it and sports pdepartment as well. pgo to our website, pand we'll keep you up to date pwith the very latest. pnews conference is scheduled psometime this afternoon. pback to you guys. p>>laura: all right. pthank you. pand again, don't forget to check pout everything., we're on facebook pand twitter, too. p>>russell: 7:10. pbreaking news right now. prescue workers in upstate new pyork frantically working to free p17 miners. pthey're trapped more than 900 pfeet underground.

7:14 am

7:17 am
pwhat's going on. pcover. pthis will all burn off. ptake a few hours but it will. pso i look above and i actually pthat. pthat's why i think once the low pcloud cover burns off, we bring ptoday. pthe sirata beach area showing psome of the low clouds and fog pthat they are dealing with. pwe turn that tampa cam around pand you can see it's looking pwest on kennedy. phoward frankland being out here pso you can't really see that pright now with some visibility pissues. pwe're down a half mile or so in psarasota and venice but notice ptampa international, still preporting 10 miles visibility. pthat fog is not quite at the psurface. pit's just above the surface and pi'm thinking that maybe some of pthese northeast winds we have paround eight, 10 miles an hour pare kind of helping the psituation out this morning. pnonetheless, sun will be up in a pfew minutes and we'll start the rocess of getting rid of some
7:18 am

7:22 am
ptalking about the need for fresh pblood. phe also said trump speaks his pmind freely. phe wrote that while the pcandidate gives some interesting pinterviews, it's how he captures pthe frustration of americans pthat has him leading the polls. pwrote, quote, voter er rs have been pchoosing new ideas and energy. pthe op ad repeated the long held pbelief that candidates should pfocus on economic policies. phe even touted his own job pcreation here in florida saying pthe same change could be seen pnationally but the dramatic pchange in government. pscott ended with an appeal to prepublican voters to stay pfrustrated. pas he put it, major change is pneeded. p>>laura: it is 7:25 now. pmost americans live paycheck to aycheck. pyesterday we told you that some eople can't even afford to pspend $500 on an unexpected pexpense.

7:30 am
pas a matter of fact, laura, i pasked him several times, now is pthe time to do it. pyou're going to be killed ptomorrow. pyou're going to be executed. pnow is the time to come clean, pto tell us what you know, to pexplain what happened, to show premorse and he said, i have no preason to show remorse. pi didn't do this. pi didn't kill these women at pall. phe reiterated that over and over pand over again throughout the phour interview that we sat at pthis prison, going over all the pfacts in the case and again, he pspent half an hour really going pover all of the details of the pcase and how the evidence pdoesn't add up, how he was pframed by police, how he was pframed by an f.b.i. analyst and phe's convinced that at the end pof the day, florida is executing pan innocent man. phe said that over and over pagain, laura. p>>laura: and for you personally, pjust as a journalist, this was a punique opportunity. pyou declined the opportunity to pto witness the execution ersonally.
7:31 am
pwhat was your impression as you psat there, just as a journalist? p>> well, as he walked in the proom, i could share with you pthat he was absolutely somber pand serious. pi mean, the gravity of the psituation really hit that room pthat we were in and we were like palmost in a cell-like room, very psmall. pand the moment he walked in, you pcould feel it. pyou could feel that intensity pand as i sat with him, the pfurther thing he said was the pfact that, yeah, i'm going to be pkilled tomorrow and how do you pdeal with that? phow do you know? pand deal with the fact that ptomorrow is the day you die. pmost of us don't know when we're pgoing to die. phe does. pit's going to be today at 6:00 .m. and he shared with me that phe will spend three of those phours with his wife and they pwill share that time together pand during that time, he will phave his last meal. pi asked him, what will be your plast meal? phe said steak and potatoes but phe didn't plan on eating it.
7:32 am
pi'm interested in spending as pmuch time with rosalie as ossible. p>>laura: let's talk about the prelationship with his wife. pit's a love story to them. pwe can't forget he's a master pmanipulator here, generally pregarded as that. pthis was a sensational story pwhen it first happened, the way phe met his wife and what phappened in the days after they pmet. pit was something, wasn't it? pit was in the news, the pheadlines. p>>reporter: absolutely. pkeep in mind that she was part pof his defense team. pshe was looking to find evidence pto exonerate him and during that ptime, the two fell in love. pshe ended up leaving her husband pwho was a high powered attorney pin tampa, and they ended up pgetting married in a prison phere. pso the whole thing was kind of psensational and took on a whole pnew headline and a side show on pthis already tragic story. pkeep in mind, there are three pvictims here and all of the
7:33 am
pthe meantime, they waited 30 pyears for justice. pall of these families. pkeep in mind, he's had 10 ptrials, eight times juries have psent him to death row. pnow the families of the victims, pthey see it as justice today at p6:00. p>>laura: and we heard from the pbest friend of one of the pvictims who said these women pnever got a chance to get pmarried. pthey never had an opportunity to pfind love or experience any of pthose moments. p>>reporter: nothing. pthey were just ripped from phaving a life. pand think about what it did to pthe families. pi mean, they've been suffering pfor years. pi can tell you natalie holly's pfamily, her mother was in her p80s when bolin was being tried pfor the last time. pshe passed away so she will not pget to see justice but the rest pof her family will. pclearly this family, all the pfamilies have endured a lot of ain for 30 years. pending today for them. p>>laura: we know this was a long

7:35 am
