Little by little, MMQB writers Peter King, Jenny Vrentas, Robert Klemko and Gary Gramling, among others, have been counting down the top 100 most influential people for the 2015 season. So far, two Bucs have made the list – General Manager Jason Licht and Offensive Coordinator Dirk Koetter.

Earlier this week, Koetter was named the No. 16 coordinator in the league by NFL, on either side of the ball, by NFL Media's Bucky Brooks, and the No. 7 Offensive Coordinator in the league. Koetter's ranking in the MMQB's top 100 – 73rd.

Licht, the man largely responsible for bringing Jameis Winston to Tampa, was listed at No. 89.

The list is only halfway done, though, having reached No. 51 this past week. Numbers 50 through 41 will be released next week, and there could still be a few Bucs making an appearance, possibly Head Coach Lovie Smith or Winston.

Koetter is one of two Offensive Coordinators to make the list so far, joining Seattle's Darrell Bevel (65) while Denver's John Elway (91) and Indianapolis' Ryan Grigson (60) join Licht as the General Managers to be metioned thus far.
