Report: Buccaneers to hire Jason Licht as general manager
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have hired Arizona Cardinals vice president of player personnel Jason Licht as their new general manager, the team announced.
Licht has spent the previous two years with the Cardinals, after having previously worked in the front offices of the Eagles, Patriots and Dolphins.
The position became open shortly after the season, when the team let go general manager Mark Dominik as well as head coach Greg Schiano. They have since hired former Bears coach Lovie Smith.
Licht's contract is for four years with a team option, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
