Malcolm Glazer, owner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers since 1995, died Wednesday morning, the team announced. He was 85.

The Buccaneers made seven playoff appearances with Glazer as owner, including a Super Bowl title following the 2002 season.

In 2005, Glazer also purchased Manchester United, one of the most storied franchises in the English Premier League. In that time, the club earned five league titles, as well as a Champions League title.

Glazer is survived by his wife, Linda, six children and 14 grandchildren.

According to the Buccaneers website the team will remain in the family.

"Mr. Glazer's long established estate succession plan has assured the Buccaneers will remain with the Glazer family for generations to come. Linda Glazer, along with their five sons and daughter, will continue to own and operate the team as they have throughout the family's ownership."
