Tampa Bay Buccaneers: That's what Bruce Arians returned as Head Coach

Bruce Arians after his surprising resignation as Head Coach the Tampa Bay Buccaneers explains the motivations for his step. In addition, he grabbed rumors over a tense relationship with Tom Brady.

Arians is glad to be able to hand over his office to one of his fellow combatives, in this case the previous defensive coordinator Todd Bowles. For this he even renounces the possibility to be added to the Hall of Fame with another Super Bowl profit. "I do not care about the Hall of Fame," he said on Thursday.

"My succession is much more important to me. That was a very long time my dream. People who know me knew that I wanted to hand over one of my boys," Arians said. Incidentally, his family played an important role, which supports him in his decision.

Even Tom Brady's retractor from the end of the career has played a role for the coach. But it is not about a dispute with the superstar, but to stop the right moment. "We have a great relationship," says the coach. Bradys return made the situation from the point of view of Arians easier for Bowles, as a possible career end or even a violation of Bradys had created another situation at the end of the coming season in the coming season. "Then it would have become an open job interview" for Bowles, what Arians wanted to prevent.

Arians had a balance of 31-18 over three seasons with the Tampa Buch Buccaneers. This is the highest winning quota of all coaches (.633) in the history of Bucs. He also led his team 2020 to win the Super Bowl. The Buccaneers announced on Thursday that the Success Trainer will be added to the Ring of Honor of the Team this season.
