Buccaneers interview Arians for coaching vacancy


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers interviewed two-time NFL Coach of the Year Bruce Arians for their head coaching vacancy on Saturday, the team announced.

Arians, 66, previously said the Cleveland Browns job was the only one he would consider but apparently had a change of heart when the Bucs fired Dirk Koetter on Sunday.

Arians has prior relationships with both Tampa Bay general manager Jason Licht and quarterback Jameis Winston.

Licht was Arizona's vice president of player personnel when Arians was head coach of the Cardinals. Winston attended Arians' football camp in Birmingham, Ala., when he was a kid.

Arians compiled a 49-30-1 record as head coach of the Cardinals (2013-17). He also compiled a 9-3 record in 2012 as the interim coach of the Indianapolis Colts as Chuck Pagano underwent treatment for leukemia. He was Coach of the Year in 2012 and 2014 and retired after the 2017 season. He worked as a broadcaster with CBS Sports during the 2018 season.

Arians is believed to be the first former NFL head coach to interview with Tampa Bay. The team also has met with Kansas City offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and Minnesota defensive coordinator George Edwards. The Bucs are scheduled to meet with Dallas defensive backs coach Kris Richard on Sunday.
