Profile
Had two spells with the Buccaneers interrupted by a stint in the USFL with the Denver Gold. The only offensive lineman in franchise history to kick an extra point, Coach John McKay let him do the honours in the 1983 season finale after the Dave Warnke debacle. Re-signed with the Bucs in 1985 and played another three seasons in Tampa Bay before being released at the end of the 1987 season. Spent 1988 with the Atlanta Falcons and then 1989 with the Houston Oilers. Went on to a coaching career that included a year with the Bucs in 2008. Originally wore the 68 shirt in his first stint with the Bucs. Returned in 1985 to wear the 69 shirt for the season opener alone and then took over the 66 jersey from then on.
