TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have hired Arizona Cardinals front-office executive Jason Licht as general manager.

The team confirmed the move Tuesday and plans to formally introduce him as the fifth GM in club history at a news conference Thursday.

Licht has been with the Cardinals for the past two seasons, the last one as vice president of player personnel.

Bucs co-chairman Joel Glazer called him an ''ideal complement'' to new coach Lovie Smith.

Licht was Arizona general manager Steve Keim's right-hand man in the overhaul of the Cardinals' roster last offseason, which resulted in a 10-6 record.

He replaces Mark Dominik, who was fired after the Buccaneers went 4-12.

The hire was first reported by Fox Sports.
