Bruce Arians Resigns As Bucs Coach

Bruce Arians, the Buccaneers coach, has resigned and is being replaced with Todd Bowles.

Arians told NBC Sports “succession has always been huge for me, with the organization in probably the best shape it’s been in its history, [and] with Tom Brady coming back.”

“I’d rather see Todd in position to be successful and not have to take some [crappy] job. I’m probably retiring next year anyway, in February. So, I have control of the narrative. I don’t control it next February because [if] Brady gets hurt, we go 10-7, and it’s an open interview for the job … I got 31 [coaches and their]Families that depend on me. My wife is big on not letting all those families down.”
