Bucs Have GM Favorites; Hickey Looks EastJanuary 18th, 2014
The Bucs don’t have a general manager. No problem. Lovie Smith is in charge.
The Bucs are still interviewing candidates. Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, their search presses on with two favorites: Marc Ross and Jason Licht, executives with the Giants and Cardinals, respectively. Both were college players. Ross is a Princeton man, and Licht has twice worked for Bill Belicheat, last serving as Patriots director of pro personnel from 2009 to 2011.
Bucs director of player personnel Dennis Hickey, former rockstar general manager Mark Dominik’s right hand man, is still at One Buc Palace leading scouting efforts. But reports out of South Florida have him interviewing for the Dolphins’ vacant GM gig.
