Co-Chairman

BRYAN GLAZER

CO-CHAIRMAN

Co-Chairman Bryan Glazer enters his 21st year with the Buccaneers, working tirelessly to support the Buccaneers franchise and brand. Possessing an acute business sense, Glazer, who oversees many of the day-to-day operations of the club, has shaped the Buccaneers into one of the most recognizable and successful franchises in the National Football League and has become a leader in the Bay Area, recognized for his tremendous community work.


The Buccaneers have posted 148 regular season wins and five playoff wins with seven playoff appearances under Glazer’s leadership. That unprecedented level of success paints a stark contrast to the meager .300 winning percentage posted by the team prior to its purchase, which included advancement to the postseason just three times from 1976-94.


Glazer and his entire family were on hand as Tampa Bay claimed its first NFL title with a 48-21 victory over Oakland in Super Bowl XXXVII on January 26, 2003, in San Diego. The Buccaneers, who were making their first appearance in the NFL’s championship game, also claimed the first-ever NFC South title in 2002, then the fourth division crown in team history. Tampa Bay also took NFC South titles in 2005 and 2007.


An instrumental figure in his family’s purchase of the Buccaneers in 1995, Glazer has been a driving force in improving every aspect of the club’s influence, both nationally and in the Tampa Bay region.


In 2014, the franchise welcomed its 10th head coach, as the Glazer family selected Lovie Smith to lead the team. It was a homecoming for Smith, whose first NFL coaching position was tutoring linebackers as a member of Tony Dungy’s Tampa Bay staff from 1996-2000, and the choice was roundly lauded in NFL circles. Smith brings stability and a wealth of experience to the Buccaneers, taking the reins following nine years (2004-12) as head coach of the Chicago Bears. During his tenure, Smith led the Bears to three division titles, two NFC Championship Game appearances and a berth in Super Bowl XLI, as well as being name AP and PFW/PFWA Coach of the Year in 2005. Securing Smith for the Buccaneers highlighted the Glazer family’s enduring commitment to bringing excellence to the Bay Area.


Glazer’s dedication to the Bay Area is also highlighted in constructing Raymond James Stadium, which successfully hosted both Super Bowl XXXV in 2001 and Super Bowl XLIII in 2009. Glazer played an integral role in helping to lure the 2009 game to the Bay Area, speaking to NFL owners on behalf of the team and the Tampa Bay community at the NFL League meetings in May 2005. Glazer is committed to continuing to bring future Super Bowls to the area.


Glazer’s innovative approach to business and penchant for thinking outside the box has resulted in many new developments for the club, including the creation of the Pewter Partners program, which rewards the Buccaneers’ sponsors with superior advertising packages and unprecedented customer service.
In addition to his business achievements, Glazer also has been involved in a number of vital football-related efforts directly related to the on-the-field success experienced by the Buccaneers, certainly including, but not limited to, the team’s first Super Bowl championship.


A native of Rochester, New York, Glazer serves on the NFL’s Digital Media Committee, as appointed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, and he makes regular community and charitable appearances on behalf of the Glazer Family Foundation, which was honored as Foundation of the Year by the Tampa Bay Sports Commission in 2011.


The Glazer Children’s Museum opened in Tampa in 2010, in large part due to the Foundation’s gift of $5 million. In addition to serving on the museum’s Board of Directors, Glazer is also a member of the Moffitt Cancer Center National Board of Advisors, The Board of Directors Advisory Council for Ronald McDonald House, the advisory board for the Outback Bowl, and, in spring of 2011, he served as Chairman of the American Heart Association’s annual Heart Ball.


Glazer’s efforts to remain connected and active in the Bay Area community continued in 2015, as he played a key role in financing the development of a state-of-the-art Jewish Community Center that is scheduled to open in West Tampa by the end of 2016. The campus, which will be named the Bryan Glazer Family JCC, will serve an important role in the revitalization of the surrounding area, providing a place for families and community to come together.


Glazer also serves on the Board of Manchester United, which has captured five Premier League titles (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2013), as well as the 2008 Champions League title.


Glazer earned his bachelor’s degree in broadcast communications from American University in 1986, prior to completing his law degree from Whittier College School of Law in 1989. He resides in Tampa with his wife Shanna.
