Lovie Glad To Be At “Home”

January 6th, 2014

One reason Lovie Smith decided to accept the position as the 10th coach in Bucs history is because it’s home.

Though a native of Texas, Smith made his bones as a NFL assistant with Father Dungy and the Bucs in the 1990s before he left for St. Louis to become the Bucs defensive coordinator.

Lovie said during his introductory press conference this afternoon, he is “home.”

When Lovie moved to St. Louis in 2001, he kept his house in Tampa. Maybe with some astute foresight, that house will be getting used a lot more as Lovie said, he’s “home” again.

    Home is where the heart is! I don’t know if he can win or not, but I like this man!

    I am excited for this upcoming season i think the glazers made a smart move. Our defense will become consistent under Lovie n be a staple in the south. DERRICK BROOKS COMING TO TAMPA? Lol hopefully. I like that lovie put it out there publicly that any of his great former players would be welcomed to help out the team. Cant wait for the season

    That’s impressive that he was able to be the Bucs Defensive Coordinator all the way from over in St. Louis.

    I’m sorry Joe it was too easy to pass up.
