Buccaneers Sign Bruce Arians to Four-Year Deal

How much does age matter when hiring NFL head coaches

How much does age matter when hiring NFL head coaches

The Buccaneers fired Dirk Koetter, who had coached the team the past three seasons, hours after their season-ending loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Arians and Bowles worked together during their time in Arizona.

The Arizona Cardinals travel to Tampa Bay in 2019 so it will be quite the reunion for the Bucs staff under Arians.

"His willingness to work is unbelievable", Arians said.

Per ESPN, the Bucs will send the Cardinals a sixth-round pick in exchange for a seventh-round pick and Arians' rights, which Arizona holds since the coach retired. He's expected to turn around a franchise that has failed to make the playoffs since the 2007 season. They haven't won a postseason game since their 2002 Super Bowl run under Jon Gruden.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hired Bruce Arians to be their next head coach, signing him Tuesday to a four-year contract with a fifth-year team option. "There's three keys to winning in this league: Ownership, general manager, head coach combination".

Arians is the latest in a line of successors that includes Raheem Morris, Greg Schiano, Lovie Smith and Koetter, who landed the job in 2016 primarily because ownership felt his offensive expertise would accelerate the growth of young quarterback Jameis Winston. He was twice named AP Coach of the Year with the Cardinals.

The Bucs are counting on Arians to help Winston realize his potential.

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