BUCS TRUSTEE TELLS PROSPECTIVE BUYERS: BUCS ARE NOT FOR SALE
Published September 12, 1994
Steve Story, trustee of the late Hugh Culverhouse's estate, announced that no offers will be solicited and no offers will be accepted for the Buccaneers, according to a report in this morning's TAMPA TRIBUNE. Story said that decision came after he met with Joy Culverhouse on Friday: "The Bucs are not on the block. This stance is not just for this season, but for the foreseeable future as well." Bucs coach Sam Wyche said that he and the players were "relieved" by the decision: "I told the team -- there was applause all around." The TAMPA TRIBUNE's Tom McEwen writes that the announcement "put to rest" concerns that the Bucs would be "sold and shipped to Baltimore or St. Louis or Sacramento or Orlando" (Tom McEwen, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 9/12).
