Bucs May Lose Key Executive

December 18th, 2008

It’s bad enough the Bucs are losing Monte Kiffin at season’s end. And how the Bucs fare in the coming weeks will likely determine Chucky’s future with the team.

If Mike Florio, the creator, curator and overall guru of ProFootballTalk.com is to be believed, this could also be the last season for the Bucs’ director of pro personnel.

Mark Dominik, a 13-year veteran of the Bucs front office, is rumored to be a key candidate to succeed departed Chiefs general manager Carl Peterson.

Another name to watch, we’re told, is Buccaneers pro personnel director Mark Domenik [sic]. There’s chatter that Domenik might be on the short list of candidates for the G.M. position.

Rumors also have Dick Vermeil coming out of retirement to take the vacant Chiefs position.

The rumor about Dominik may have legs if his personal history is any indicator. Dominik is a graduate of the University of Kansas, which is nearly a suburb of Kansas City. Dominik also worked for the Chiefs in their college and pro personnel departments prior to joining the Bucs.

Dominik preceded the Father Dungy era in Tampa Bay. His duties per Buccaneers.com:

Dominik was added to the Buccaneers’ staff in June 1995 as a pro personnel assistant. He served in that capacity through the 1997 season before assuming the title of pro scout in 1998. In 2000 he was elevated to the coordinator of pro personnel before being promoted to his current position.

Dominik has been the Bucs director of pro personnel for the past seven seasons.
