Licht’s Right Hand Will Interview For Titans Gig

January 7th, 2016

LichtmugAs Joe wrote last week, Bucs general manager and new Tampa Bay overlord of football operations Jason Licht is in danger of losing his right-hand man.

That is Jon Robinson, the Bucs’ director of player personnel. This morning, ESPN is reporting that Robinson was granted permission by the Buccaneers to interview for the vacant general manager position with the Tennessee Titans.

Robinson was hired by Licht following the 2014 NFL Draft. He and Licht were scouting comrades under Bill Belicheat in New England, where Robinson spent 12 seasons before joining the Bucs. He interviewed for the Jets’ general manager opening last year.

After Licht’s grand slam in the 2015 NFL Draft, Joe has no desire to see Robinson leave.

    Just Sayin’ has the right idea. I think that Licht has the experience and has shown that he knows what he’s doing. I don’t know how many times I’ve read about people believing that the Glazers would be better off with a President of Football Operations running the team. Maybe changing the way they do things can right the ship.

    There are huge networks of coaches and GM’s, scouts etc and most of them know each other very well.

    I just have the gut feeling that Licht is very smart and he spent time at two great places to see how success is achieved first hand. He has SEEN how to do it.
    He has friends and contacts from Belicheat on….he’ll be able to find a replacement if the guy takes another job.

    Any great organization realizes that staff moving on for BETTER positions is actually a very good thing. It means you’ve got good people and other people considering you look at your organization and see that people who come to you are ultimately successful and you support their careers.

    I’m always glad for anybody who can improve their position.

    The Glazers must now fire themselves as team president for once and all. We lost the legendary GM Rich McKay and spiraled out the dungy era because Joe Glazer didn’t wanna give up being president and become just an owner but he should let Jason Licht be president and Jon Robinson the GM seriously we need football guys in the front office not Joe Glazer. He should instead succeed his dad as the owneri nstead. We need to keep Robinson though and not as a scout either.

    Until Mr. Licht is fired the Bucs are doomed.
