Career[change | change source]

During the 2002 off-season, Joel worked with brothers Edward and Bryan. They hired one of the new coaching stars in the NFL in Jon Gruden. Gruden was the first non-rookie head coach in the history of the NFL to lead his team to the Super Bowl in his first season with a new team.[3]

Glazer has helped to lead the design for the franchise's new 145,000-square-foot (13,500 m2) training place. He promised a "world-class facility" that will be the finest in the National Football League.[4] The facility opened in time for the 2006 NFL season. It was built on the former Tampa Bay Center mall site across the street from Raymond James Stadium. Since the team started in 1976, Tampa Bay has been based for the last 30 seasons at One Buccaneer Place, a training facility located near the Tampa International Airport.
