EXECUTIVE TRANSACTIONS

     The Buccaneers have named RICH MCKAY as the team's new
General Manager.  McKay had been VP of Football Administration.
McKay's role as GM will be somewhat limited as he will be unable
to hire or fire coaches.  McKay said that Coach SAM WYCHE will
remain the team's Director of Football Operations: "Those
decisions that affect football operations on a day-to-day basis
remain Sam's.  The big change is on the scouting side."  McKay
added: "The real change would be as far as the supervision of the
draft and the free agency; that will fall a little more to me and
try to take a little off of Sam's shoulders" (Pat Yasinskas,
