If Tom Brady, Buccaneers win Super Bowl, does Bruce Arians retire? The coach speaks out
Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians has shut down the idea of him riding into the sunset should Tom Brady guide the team to a win in the Super Bowl a couple of weeks. However, he bared that his future with the Bucs depends on whether the Glazer family would decide to bring him back at the helm.
“Hell no,” Arians said, via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. “I’m going for two. If the Glazers will have me back.”
The current Buccaneers’ sideline boss has already been in the league since the 1989 season. He served as the running backs coach of the Kansas City Chiefs from that year until 1992. He also served roles in various teams namely the New Orleans Saints, Indianapolis Colts, Cleveland Browns, and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Perhaps his biggest break to date was his head coaching stint with the Arizona Cardinals from 2013 to 2017. However, he begged off from his duties from the team by the end of the 2017 season due to medical concerns. Arians eventually found his way back in the league after he was named the head coach of the Buccaneers last season, a role that he continues to hold to this day.
Bruce Arians already snagged two Super Bowl victories (XL, XLIII) in his illustrious career, both of which came from his stint with the Steelers. He previously served as the wide receivers coach of the team from 2004 to 2006 and as their offensive coordinator from 2007 to 2011.
With his stacked Buccaneers squad, Arians is already looking to add another ring to his collection if Tom Brady and company emerge victorious against the AFC Champion Kansas City Chiefs. Both teams will tussle for the Super Bowl 55 title on Feb. 7. at Tampa Bay, Florida.
