Nearly a month after former Bucs’ director of player personnel Jon Robinson earned a promotion to become the next general manager of the Tennessee Titans, Tampa Bay has filled the front office vacancy.
On Monday the team confirmed the hiring of Broncos’ national scout John Spytek. The hire, taken from the Super Bowl champions, indicates that the Bucs conducted a thorough search and waited for every possible candidate to be available. General manager Jason Licht considered Robinson to be his right hand man, so it’s no surprise that Tampa Bay went after an experienced candidate from a successful organization to replace him.
Spytek, who served as Denver’s southwest regional scout in 2013 before being promoted to a national scout in 2014, has spent 10 years in an NFL front office. In three seasons in Cleveland as director of college scouting (2010-2012), the Browns had six All-Rookie team selections and drafted four players who made the Pro Bowl in 2013.
