Adam Schefter just reported on his Twitter feed that Sam Wyche has passed away. Sam was instrumental in drafting John Lynch, Warren Sapp and Derrick Brooks.
Remember his press conference: “Its a new day in Tampa Bay”.
Sam Wyche, the former Bengals and Bucs HC, died today from melanoma. He was 74. “Sam was a wonderful guy,” said Bengals’ president Mike Brown. “We not only liked him, we admired him as a man. He had a great generosity of spirit and lived his life trying to help others.”
Sam was a truly good man on and off the field. He brought Buc fans hope after the dark ages of Bennett, Perkins and Williamson. Sapp, Brooks and Lynch were drafted when he was here. He introduced Buc fans to something called offense. R.I.P.
I had high hopes when he was hired as HC. Fun times with Sam win or lose. I like to think he got the ball rolling with our Super Bowl defense. Great draft picks on the defensive side of the ball. God bless him and his family.
