The 2014 Tampa Bay Buccaneers season is the franchise's 39th season in the National Football League. It is also the first season under new head coach Lovie Smith, who replaces Greg Schiano, who was fired at the end of the season. It is also the first season under new general manager Jason Licht, following the departure of Mark Dominik, after a disappointing 2013 season.

It will also mark the first season under new ownership since 1994, after longtime owner Malcolm Glazer died on May 28, 2014. Glazer's family will continue to run the team operations.

The Buccaneers will try to improve their record of 4–12 of last season.
