Buccaneers fire player development director Isaiah Harris after DUI arrest

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers took a stand.

They fired player development director Isaiah Harris, 35, who was arrested for driving under the influence early Thursday morning.

Harris had worked in the same capacity for the Chicago Bears under coach Lovie Smith.

"Every member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is held to a high standard," Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht said in a statement. "This type of incident, particularly for someone whose primary responsibilities are to mentor and develop our players off the field, cannot be tolerated. Due to the nature of his position and the expectations placed on our staff, we made the organizational decision to part ways with Isaiah."
