Bruce Arians Named Head Coach Of The Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bruce Arians Named Head Coach Of The Tampa Bay Buccaneers

If one is to believe a well-plugged-in National Football League reporter, new Bucs coach Bruce Arians already has his coaching staff filled out.

The 66-year-old came out of a one-year retirement Tuesday to fill the team's fifth coaching vacancy in a decade.

The Bucs recently fired head coach Dirk Koetter after three seasons with the team.

Bears secondary coach Ed Donatell is one in-house possibility, and he has the kind of experience (eight years as a defensive coordinator in the NFL) to be an obvious candidate. Arians' confidence in talking about Bowles being on his Tampa staff - when it still seemed up in the air - during a conversation with NFL Network's Rich Eisen on Wednesday seemed to indicate which way the wind was blowing.

Bowles also was courted by the Chicago Bears after defensive coordinator Vic Fangio was hired as the Denver Broncos head coach.

"There is no doubt", Arians said of Winston's role as the Bucs' starter.

In five seasons leading the Cardinals, Arians went 40-27-1 and took Arizona to the playoffs twice, including an appearance in the NFC Championship game.

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

The day after Koetter was sacked, Licht made it clear that whoever wound up replacing the coach would inherit Winston as his starting quarterback.

Winston sat out the first three games of this season while serving a suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy and was benched twice after regaining the starting job because of inconsistent play.

Todd Bowles has resurfaced a little more than a week after the Jets fired him after four seasons.

"Growth and unbelievable potential, how good he can be", Arians said of Winston.
