Bruce Arians Named Head Coach Of The Tampa Bay Buccaneers

"Bruce Arians is one of the NFL's most well-respected coaches over the past two decades and we are excited to have him leading our team", Buccaneers owner Bryan Glazer said in a press release.

Eight teams began the week looking for new head coaches and that number is diminishing after Matt LaFleur agreed a four-year deal to succeed Mike McCarthy at Green Bay and Kliff Kingsbury filled the position once held by Arians as head coach of the Cardinals, who sacked Steve Wilks after one season.

Gruden was sacked 10 years ago this month.

There's a new captain on board in Tampa Bay. He was twice named AP Coach of the Year with the Cardinals.

Leftwich was most recently the offensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals, as he took over midseason after Mike McCoy was sacked.


Arians spent the 2018 broadcasting games for CBS. Turnovers and a porous defense were the main culprits.

Winston will carry a cap hit of $20.9 million on the fifth-year option of his rookie deal in 2019. Off the field, he received a three-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy - a punishment stemming from a November 2017 investigation into groping allegations made against Winston by a female Uber driver. He's only 193 yards shy of replacing Vinny Testaverde (14,820 yards, 1987-92) as the club's all-time passing leader.

Arians, however, reminded Eisen that he's known the embattled Bucs quarterback since he was in high school, when Winston attended one of Arians' football camps, and suggested his Buccaneers team will be centered on the former Florida State star.

Among the high-profile quarterbacks he has worked with during a long coaching career are Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Carson Palmer and Andrew Luck.
