Buccaneers To Hire Bruce Arians As Head Coach, Todd Bowles As DC

09 January 2019

Ever since the Jon Gruden era fizzled out, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been despite for a true identity and a winning culture.

Arians last coached Arizona in 2017 when he guided the team to an 8-8 season.

Coming off a their second straight 5-11 season, the Buccaneers let Dirk Koetter go after three seasons in which he compiled a 19-29 record.

Want a sad stat, Bucs fans?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are finalizing a deal that would make Bruce Arians their next head coach, ESPN's Adam Schefter said.

Arians was out of coaching for a season, working as an analyst for CBS Sports. Licht was vice president of player personnel during Arians' tenure as head coach with the Cardinals.

He has a reputation for developing quarterbacks like Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Andrew Luck.

I mean, the man even wrote a book called, "The Quarterback Whisperer".

Arians has had a number of health scares. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cardinals argued to the National Football League that they deserved to be compensated by the Buccaneers for Arians' hiring.

His defensive coordinator will be Todd Bowles, who was his DC for the first two seasons he was in Arizona.

This franchise is desperate for a change in culture, direction, and philosophy.

With Arians, that's exactly what the Bucs are getting.
