John Spytek
Director of Player Personnel
John Spytek enters his first season with the Buccaneers in 2016 as the Director of Player Personnel. Prior to joining Tampa Bay, Spytek spent  three seasons with the Denver Broncos, where he worked as Southwest area scout in 2013, before being elevated to national scout, a position he held for two years (2014-15). The Broncos’ 37 regular season and 42 overall wins were the most in the NFL over that three-year span, culminating in a Super Bowl 50 victory on February 7, 2016.

Before joining the Broncos, Spytek spent three seasons (2010-12) as the Cleveland Browns’ director of college scouting. While with the Browns, Spytek assisted in drafting six players who earned PFW/PFWA All-Rookie Team honors and five players who were selected to a Pro Bowl.

Spytek began his player personnel career working as an intern with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2005, earning a full-time college scouting assistant position in 2006 and spending three years as a college/pro scout from 2007-09. His first job in the NFL was as an operations intern with the Detroit Lions in 2004.

John and his wife, Kristen, serve as vice president and president, respectively, of the National CMV Foundation. They founded the organization in 2013 to inform and educate families about the prevention of congenital CMV, a virus that ultimately claimed the life of their 21-month old daughter, Evelyn, in 2014. The couple is also parents to one son, Jack.

A native of Pewaukee, Wisconsin, Spytek played linebacker at Michigan from 1999-2002, earning a bachelor’s degree in general studies and a master’s in sports management.
