All eyes are on Lovie Smith during the offseason in Tampa Bay and many are excited for what’s to come. A lot of people think that he was the perfect hire for the Buccaneers.
Former Chicago Bears player, Adewale Ogunleye, played under Coach Smith and he told NFL Network that he applauds the Bucs for making the right hire.
“He’s a coach that’s going to be a father figure, the kind of guy that will hold you accountable for the things you do on the field and off the field, the kind of guy that you need in your corner. When things don’t go right, he’s going to take the blame and when things go well, he’s going to keep the praise on you. I think Tampa did a great job hiring Lovie Smith. They’re gonna get a guy who will turn that defense around…”
