TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have fired coach Greg Schiano and Mark Dominik following a 4-12 finish.

The Bucs made the announcement Monday, a day after a season-ending 42-17 loss to the New Orleans dropped Schiano's record to 11-21 over two seasons.

Bucs co-chairman Bryan Glazer said in a brief statement that the team has "not lived up to our standards" over the past two years and "we believe the time has come to find a new direction."

Tampa Bay lost the first eight games of the season while going through a messy split with former quarterback Josh Freeman and an outbreak of MRSA infections in the locker room.

Dominik was promoted to general manager in 2009. The team went 28-52 in five years under his direction.
