Loving the Idea of Lovie in Tampa

Nothing but love for this move

Nothing but love for this move

Nobody ever knows how things will turn out. But, for the record, I love the Lovie Smith hire for Tampa Bay. Some things are announced and you just think to yourself: “Yup, that one makes sense. That could work.” That sentiment was never widely embraced when Greg Schiano came to town, and it only got worse.

Smith brings a defensive mentality to a team that made its mark during its prime year for its work on that side of the ball. It was a franchise that experienced five winning seasons during the six-year tenure of Tony Dungy. A familiar face coached the linebackers for those Dungy teams from 1996-2000. Welcome back to Tampa, Lovie Smith.

This franchise needed a good man at the helm. A coach who can and has garnered the respect of his players. Smith carries that reputation with him to Tampa Bay. The Bucs will be better for it. Congrats to Coach Smith and best of luck back on the sidelines.
