Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians is retiring.
Defensive coordinator Todd Bowles will take over the job for Arians.
The 69-year-old is taking on a front office role with the team effective immediately as senior consultant for football.
Arians has spent 47 years coaching football and became a head coach for the first time in his career in 2013 when he joined the Arizona Cardinals.
Arians led the Bucs to a Super Bowl victory two years ago with the help of QB stud Tom Brady who also retired for a hot minute at the end of last season.
44-year-old Brady recently announced he was returning to the NFL and the Buccaneers, and perhaps an Arian’s departure/replacement was part of the deal.
