Not many owners can say they were as passionate about their football team as was the late Malcolm Glazer. Glazer purchased the Buccaneers in 1995 for what was then a record-breaking amount of $192 million.Seven years later, he hired Jon Gruden to become head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers leading us to a Super Bowl victory a year later.
Jon Gruden, at the age of 39, became the youngest head coach to win a Super Bowl Champion (Mike Tomlin usurped him). Gruden coached the Buccaneers for 9 seasons and has the most wins of any coach in Bucs history, to this date.
Both Gruden and Glazer will be inducted into the Buccaneers Ring of Honor this year. Malcolm Glazer’s induction will be held during the Bucs vs Patriots game on Oct. %th and Gruden’s will be held on Nov.26 during the Bucs vs Falcons game.
Last Sunday marked the three-year anniversary of Malcolm Glazer’s passing which was May 28th, 2014. He passed away at age of 85.
