When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Kansas City Chiefs on Super Bowl Sunday, at least one Ithaca College alumnus will have more than the average fan's rooting interest in the outcome of the game. Ed Glazer '92 is the co-owner and co-chairman of the Buccaneers, overseeing many aspects of the team's day-to-day business operations.
Ed's father, Malcolm, purchased the NFL franchise in 1995, and helped steer the team to its first (and so far, only) Super Bowl victory in 2003. Ed had served as executive vice president of the Buccaneers, and since Malcolm passed away in 2014, he and his siblings have run the front office.
A sociology major at IC, Ed has demonstrated a commitment to every community that he has been a part of. In addition to bringing a fan-centric approach to the game-day experience at Tampa Bay's Raymond James Stadium, he and his wife, Shari, are committed to providing aid and support to many philanthropic causes through the Edward and Shari Glazer Charitable Trust.
