Reports are stating that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have hired Bruce Arians as their next head coach. Arians was a broadcaster this season, but had previously been the Head Coach of the Arizona Cardinals. He had also lead the Indianapolis Colts on an interim basis when Chuck Pagano was dealing with cancer.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this hire for Tampa Bay. Arians has been known to be quite the “QB Whisperer” and should get the most out of Jameis Winston next season. If Winston can’t produce next year under Arians, the team can move on and draft a new QB. Arians is quite a character, and should be entertaining for a fan base that has seemed to be tuning out the Bucs, as the stands have been pretty empty for home games.
Arians led the Cardinals to the NFC Championship, and if he can get Jameis to play at the level that management originally thought he could, then this team could be on the rise quickly. That’s a lot to ask of a QB that has made some poor decisions on and off the field. If anyone is going to be able to get him to play to his potential, Bruce Arians is the man for the job. Plus, he really pulls off the Kangol hat.
