Updates from Wednesday, Jan. 1

From Jay Glazer of Fox Sports:

The Bucs are hiring Lovie Smith to be their new head coach, two sides are finalizing the contract tonight

— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) January 2, 2014

Perfect hire for Bucs after what they just went through, Lovie is a grown up, no drama guy who will bring old Bucs tradition back.

— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) January 2, 2014

Lovie quietly interviewed w Bucs this week and team moved quickly to make him their guy. Still working out contract details
