iStock/Thinkstock(TAMPA, Fla.) -- Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner Malcolm Glazer passed away on Wednesday. He was 85.

Glazer bought the Bucs in 1995 for a then-record price of $192 million. During his tenure as owner, Tampa Bay won its first and only Super Bowl championship in 2002.

“Malcolm Glazer was the guiding force behind the building of a Super Bowl-champion organization. His dedication to the community was evident in all he did, including his leadership in bringing Super Bowls to Tampa Bay,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. “Malcolm’s commitment to the Bucs, the NFL and the people of the Tampa Bay region are the hallmarks of his legacy. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Linda, their six children and the entire Glazer family.”

Glazer also owned soccer's Manchester United of the U.K.'s Premier League.
