Bruce Arians, the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, has suddenly opted to step down, with defensive coordinator Todd Bowles being elevated to the position beginning next season.
Bruce Arians‘ three-year journey as the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ended. Arians announced his retirement and may be seen as a football consultant in the coming future. In 2021, Arians and quarterback Tom Brady led the Buccaneers to their second Super Bowl win. His 31-18 record is among the greatest in NFL history, and he has a long list of achievements and accomplishments to back up his claim to the Hall of Fame.
Bruce said in a statement “I love football. I love the relationships, the strategy, the competition-everything. It has been one hell of a ride, but I know this is the right time for me to make this transition.
“So why now? The simple answer is that I have accomplished more than I ever dreamed I could during this incredible coaching journey. Winning Super Bowl LV at our home stadium, with my mom and family in attendance, was really the last item I wanted to check off my career bucket list. For me, this is about more than just trying to add more wins to my coaching record.”
Tom Brady and Bruce Arians
Tom Brady after a small period of retirement, returned back to the NFL on March 13th while Bruce Arians announced his retirement as the head coach of the Buccaneers on Wednesday. Together Brady and Bruce led the Bucs to the SuperBowl Victory in 2021, the second time the team achieved the feat.
Tom posted a goodbye letter for Bruce Arians which read;
“Thank you, BA for all that you have done for me and our team. You are an incredible man and coach, and it was a privilege to play for you. You are a true NFL legend and pioneer for all the work you have done to make the league more diverse and inclusive.“
Bruce Arians’ Career
Arians was hired by the Kansas City Chiefs as a running backs coach at the end of the 1988 college football season. During his tenure with the Chiefs, he worked with Bill Cowher, the coach who brought him to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Arians’ coaching philosophy “No risk it, no biscuit” is the summary of his great offence tactics making him among the best coaches in the history of the NFL. Arians was selected as the 2012 Associated Press Coach of the Year, becoming the first interim head coach to do so. Bruce served as a head coach for Indianapolis Colts and Arizona Cardinals adding up to his achievements and finally retiring as the head coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
