PHOENIX, AZ (WFLA) - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers confirmed on Twitter Tuesday evening that they have hired Arizona Cardinals front-office executive Jason Licht as general manager.
    
Licht has been with the Cardinals for the past two seasons, the last one as vice president of player personnel.
    
He 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.
    
Licht also has worked for the Carolina Panthers, New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles.
    
Material from the Associated Press was used in this report.
