Malcolm Glazer Dead at 85

There is some sad news to report from One Buc Place.

Malcolm Glazer, who owned the Bucs since 1995, died Wednesday at the age of 85.

While he was in charge, Tampa Bay went from a laughingstock to playoff contender, with the biggest highlight coming with the Super Bowl Champion team in the 2002 season. Before Glazer came along, there were rumblings that the Bucs may be leaving town.  So it is not a stretch to say the Bucs may not be in Tampa today if not for him.

His contributions off the field, including the Glazer family foundation, are notable. He also bought the Manchester United soccer franchise in 2005.

The Bucs announced that Linda Glazer, along with their five sons in daughter, will continue to own and operate the team. Mr. Glazer leaves behind his wife, Linda, six children and 14 grandchildren.
