John Harvey McKay (July 5, 1923 -- June 10, 2001) was an American football player and coach. He was served as the head coach at the University of Southern California form 1960 to 1975 and of the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers form 1976 to 1984. In 16 seasons with the USC Trojans, McKay compiled a record of 127--40--8 and won nine AAWU/Pacific-8 Conference titles. His teams made eight appearences in the Rose Bowl, winning five times. Four of his squads captured national titles (1962, 1967, 1972, 1974).
McKay moved to the NFL in 1976 to become the first head coach of the expansion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In 1976 and 1977, Tampa Bay lost the first 26 games they played. McKay's team improved by the end of the 1970s, making the playoffs three times including an appearence in the NFC Championship Game in 1979. McKay was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as a coach in 1988.
