Smith Has Final Say Over Bucs 2014 Roster

Lovie Smith

Lovie Smith‘s contract contains a clause that gives him final say over all personnel matters on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 53-man roster, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. This according to league sources.

That control is something Smith did not officially have in Chicago when he was the Bears’ head coach.

Smith will be formally introduced as the Buccaneers’ coach Monday.

As for hiring a general manager, many around the league believe Smith ultimately will hire Kansas City’s director of pro personnel Chris Ballard, whom he worked with in Chicago.
