Arians replaces Dirk Koetter, who was dismissed December 30 after leading the Bucs to 19 wins and no playoffs berths over the past three seasons. And I am sure that Arians seems a lot in Winston that he saw in Palmer, particularly when it comes to the vertical passing game.
Arians was hired as Tampa Bay's new coach on Tuesday, and he quickly started to put together his staff.
Arians is 66 years old, and retired from the Arizona Cardinals following the 2017 season. He's expected to turn around a franchise that has failed to make the playoffs since the 2007 season.
Bowles played for Arians at Temple before two successful seasons as Arians' defensive coordinator in Arizona.
Bruce Arians is the latest coach entrusted to transform the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers into winners. "There's three keys to winning in this league: Ownership, general manager, head coach combination". He was twice named AP Coach of the Year with the Cardinals.
Broncos choosing between Fangio, Munchak for HC job
Fangio has been an National Football League assistant for 32 years and for 34 years overall, including two years in the old USFL. The news comes via ESPN's Adam Schefter who reported that Fangio will be given a four-year contract, with an option for a fifth.
Bowles (defensive coordinator) - who was just fired as the New York Jets' head coach - Goodwin (offensive coordinator) and Leftwich (quarterbacks coach) were on Arians' staff in Arizona.
He completed a career-best 64.6 percent of his passes for 2,992 yards, 19 TDs and 14 interceptions this season and is already Tampa Bay's career TD pass leader with 88.
Arians said former Bucs quarter Byron Leftwich will be the team's offensive coordinator and would handle play-calling duties.
Winston is entering the final year of his rookie contract.
