Buccaneers are Lovie Smith's "last stop"

Jonathan Daniel

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a head coach fully committed to them. Which seems like it would be kind of standard.

Lovie Smith told John McClain of the Houston Chronicle that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be his last stop in the NFL, and that he's incredibly happy to be here.

It's easy to say that now, of course, but it seems like a fair prediction. Lovie Smith is 55, presumably has made enough money throughout his career to live very comfortably, and tasted the life outside the NFL last year. He knows what he'll be missing and how he can handle it. But then, no one can really predict the future -- and who knows how he'll look at it in case he's fired.

There's a lot of urgency for Smith with the Buccaneers now, though. This will be his last chance to win a Super Bowl, and the Glazers have not been overly patient in the past ten years. Jason Licht may talk about building through the draft, but Smith has hinted at spending to the cap and winning right now. Expect the Bucs to once again try to do that.

Hopefully, they'll be able to win before Smith's last stop ends.
