Buccaneers Fire Jon Gruden and Bruce Allen

Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden, who led the team to its only Super Bowl title, has been fired after seven seasons with the team. Gruden was dismissed along with general manager Bruce Allen following a lengthy meeting Friday afternoon with the Glazer family, which owns the Buccaneers.
“We will be forever grateful to Jon for bringing us the Super Bowl title, and we thank Bruce for his contributions to our franchise,” Buccaneers co-chairman Joel Glazer said in a statement. “However after careful consideration, we feel that this decision is in the best interest of our organization moving forward.”
