The Buccaneers' decision to appear on "Hard Knocks" this year definitely wasn't Dirk Koetter's idea, John Breech of CBS Sports reports.

During a press conference on Wednesday to announce the Bucs as the newest team for HBO's Emmy-award winning show, Koetter admitted that he actually didn't want to be on the show at all.

"I like watching the show. I wish I wasn't on it," the Buccaneers coach said, via "I"m speaking for me personally."

Although Koetter didn't specifically say why he didn't want his team on the show, he did say that he doesn't view it as a distraction.

"Yeah, I don't buy that," Koetter said, via the Bucs' official website. "Again, we all have a job to do. The players have a job to do, the coaches have a job to do and this is a no-nonsense business. The NFL, there are bright lights. It's just part of the deal, and I think we'll be fine."

Koetter and the Bucs will be the 10th team to appear on the HBO show, following in the footsteps of the Rams, Texans, Falcons, Bengals, Dolphins, Jets, Cowboys, Chiefs, and Ravens. Both the Cowboys and Bengals have appeared twice during the show's run.
