Buccaneers Have a New Season Spirit


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are trying to let go of their losing ways with new uniforms, a new general manager and most importantly, a new head coach. Today the team president, Bryan Glazer, talked up Lovie Smith at a Chamber of Commerce event.

Bryan Glazer told fans that when he was looking for a new head coach it was very short list, in fact, it was only one. He said Lovie Smith is a winner, and they're excited for this upcoming season.

"When it was time to make the decision, Lovie was the first call we made," he said. "We knew Lovie, it wasn't like we had to spend a lot of time to get to know him. He was here for four years, his first four years in the NFL, he was part of our family."

This season, the Buccaneers have new logos and uniforms. Bryan Glazer said this new concept started approximately two years ago, and it all came to fruition a couple months ago.

He said it's a "bold new look" and he's excited to see all the fans wearing it.
