REPORT: Bruce Arians Expected To Be Named Head Coach of Tampa Bay Bucs This Week

With one season as the interim coach for the Indianapolis Colts and five seasons leading the Arizona Cardinals, Arians returns after a one-year retirement with a.636 career winning percentage as a head coach. 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. In his three years in Arizona before that lone campaign under.500, Arians helped the team improve from 10-6 to 11-5 to 13-3 in 2015.

Tampa Bay has not officially announced any coaching moves at this time.

Rapoport notes several former Cardinals coaches as targets for Arians' staff. Arians is also close to bringing former New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles aboard as his defensive coordinator, according to Trevor Sikkema of Pewter Report. "I know Jason (Licht)".

The Buccaneers required that Arians undergo a physical, Darlington added. He was the offensive coordinator of the 2008 Pittsburgh Steelers team that beat the Cardinals in the Super Bowl and coached quarterbacks that include Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck, Ben Roethlisberger and Carson Palmer.

Arians spent the 2018 season in broadcasting.

Arians, who was 49-30-1 in a five-year run in Arizona, would replace Dirk Koetter, who was sacked after two seasons as Tampa's head coach.
