Seahawks Keep Taking From the Bucs

From Seahawks.com:

The Seattle Seahawks have hired former Tampa Bay Buccaneers scouts, Mike Phair and Mike Yowarsky, the team announced today.

“Mike Phair has been with the Buccaneeers for three years, played at Arizona State and will cover the West for us,” said President Tim Ruskell. “He is a young, up-and-coming scout who is an excellent addition to have on our staff.”

Phair was also responsible for the West Coast region in Tampa during his time. In 2001 he coached linebackers and special teams for Tiffin University, as well as recruited and coordinated academic responsibilities for the team.

Yowarsky joins Seattle after spending the previous 14 years with Tampa Bay as its Southeastern region scout. He joined the Bucs in 1991 after spending the previous year as a graduate assistant at the University of Florida under head coach Steve Spurrier.

“Mike will be our Eastern regional director who was scouting the Southeast for the Buccaneeers the past 14 years,” added Ruskell. “He brings a wealth of experience, contacts and know-how to the staff and myself.”
