Arians to be named Buccaneers coach

"His willingness to work is unbelievable", Arians said. "He knows offense, and he knows how to relate to people".

During his five seasons with the Arizona, Arians recorded a combined 40-27-1 regular-season record along with a post-season one of 1-2. In a press conference, General Manager Jason Licht said a new coach would have the opportunity to bring his own staff on board.

Other known candidates include Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards and Cowboys defensive coach Kris Richard.

Tampa Bay has not officially announced any coaching moves at this time. He earned the award in 2012 with the Indianapolis Colts and 2014 with the Arizona Cardinals.

If Jameis Winston is down to his last chance with the Buccaneers, new head coach Bruce Arians might be the man to revive his career. He also led the team to its second ever NFC Championship appearance in 2015. Leftwich was an intern for the Cardinals in 2016 under Arians, and would go on to become the team's offensive coordinator.

Rumors are circulating that recently fired Jets coach Todd Bowles is the top target for defensive coordinator.

Arians, who worked last season as a broadcaster, has worked with a string of outstanding quarterbacks, including Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Andrew Luck and he'll be tasked with continuing the development of Jameis Winston, who like Manning and Luck was a first-round National Football League draft selection.

"Byron, I think, is a rising star in this business". Arians is going to have many familiar faces on his coaching staff.
