Arians, who was 49-30-1 in a five-year run in Arizona, would replace Dirk Koetter, who was sacked after two seasons as Tampa's head coach. 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.

Licht was vice president of player personnel during Arians' tenure as head coach with the Cardinals.

Well now, with the hiring of Bucco Bruce Arians, Stuart not only believes the Bucs got a good coach, but that Arians is the "perfect coach" for Jameis. He stepped down as head coach of the Arizona Cardinals at the end of the 2017 season.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are finalizing a deal that would make Bruce Arians their next head coach, ESPN's Adam Schefter said. In a press conference, General Manager Jason Licht said a new coach would have the opportunity to bring his own staff on board.

Christensen was the quarterbacks coach in Indianapolis when Arians was the offensive coordinator.

The Bucs fired Koetter after consecutive 5-11 finishes that dropped his three-year record to 19-29.

That responsibility will fall to Byron Leftwich, who played quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers while Arians was their offensive coordinator, and began his coaching career under Arians with the Arizona Cardinals.

Arians spent the 2018 broadcasting games for CBS.

The No. 1 overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft has completed 61.6 percent of his passes for 14,628 yards and 88 touchdowns with 58 interceptions over 56 games.

Arians, however, reminded Eisen that he's known the embattled Bucs quarterback since he was in high school, when Winston attended one of Arians' football camps, and suggested his Buccaneers team will be centered on the former Florida State star.
