  • REPORT: Bruce Arians Expected To Be Named Head Coach of Tampa Bay Bucs This Week

If one is to believe a well-plugged-in National Football League reporter, new Bucs coach Bruce Arians already has his coaching staff filled out.

Arians and Bowles worked together during their time in Arizona. Arians' confidence in talking about Bowles being on his Tampa staff - when it still seemed up in the air - during a conversation with NFL Network's Rich Eisen on Wednesday seemed to indicate which way the wind was blowing.

"Bruce Arians is one of the NFL's most well-respected coaches over the past two decades, and we are excited to have him leading our team".

Former Cardinals offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich is expected to serve as pass-game coordinator with Harold Goodwin, who was OC under Arians in Arizona, acting as run-game coordinator.

Speculation around Arians joining the Buccaneers included reports he would bring in dispatched Jets head coach Todd Bowles as defensive coordinator. Bears coach Matt Nagy's father was Bowles' high school coach, while Bowles played under Arians at Temple and was Arians' defensive coordinator with the Arizona Cardinals from 2013-14.


"There is no doubt", Arians said of Winston's role as the Bucs' starter. Koetter's Bucs teams went a combined 19-29 over his three seasons and never reached the postseason. Arians is going to have many familiar faces on his coaching staff.

"Jameis Winston will be here", the GM said of the No. 1 overall pick from the 2015 draft, who's due to earn $20.92 million next season in the final year of his rookie contract.

But Winston, who's 21-33 as a starter and only led the team to one winning season in four years, has not been a bust.

The Bucs are counting on Arians to help Winston realize his potential.
