Bruce Arians Doesn’t Know What His New Role Will Be

March 31st, 2022

Former head coach Bucco Bruce Arians

Lots of emotion and love flowing at One Buc Palace today at the rarely seen happy transition of power news conference..

When does that happen in the NFL?

Bucco Bruce Arians has ceded his role as head coach to Todd Bowles and will move to a consultant role that has been said to be a front office job, however Arians repeatedly has noted– via statements and verbally — that he’ll be at practices and working with players.

This afternoon, Arians was clear that he has no clue what his new job will be but he’s fired up to do whatever he’s asked to do — whatever general manager Jason Licht and new head coach Todd Bowles want from him.

The only specifics Arians delivered were that he’s put a ton of work into the NFL Draft already and is looking forward to being a part of that process.

As Joe wrote this morning, there is one critical role for Arians and Joe sure hopes the wise men at One Buc Palace see the light and demand he attack it. Arians needs to be mentoring/teaching/coaching second-year quarterback Kyle Trask.

    So glad he is going to be around helping with the draft, helping at practice, helping the organization run, helping his coaches.

  2. Buc1987 Says:

    Agreed about Trask Joe.

  3. Jason Says:

    His job will be whatever TB12 allows it to be. Just saying.

  4. Lamarcus Says:

    BA has been demoted to just making copies. Now I have a change of heart. This is sad. Should of traded Brady to the Dolphins or 49ers

  5. Anonymous Says:

    He is a leader of men it won’t be the same

  6. Mike Says:

    He can keep mentoring Leftwich and can spend a lot more time with the young offensive players and helping them develop, not to mention helping Licht and the scouting team prepare for the draft. I don’t think it will be much different than what he was doing previously, except now he doesn’t have to spend much time reviewing game plans or strategy. Now he can just teach the offense to the young guys.

    Leftwich and Tom look forward to Bruce bringing his red pen to go over their game plans–oh, wait….

    Lamarcus, you bring up a great point. Bucs should of traded Brady, kept BA go 6-11 as you watch TB12 on 49ers cruise to the SB. Get over your old man crush. Brady just got him into the HOF, BA should be greatful. Not k owing what your job is, kinda sounds like a BS job to me. The Glazers aren’t idiots, they know where there bread is buttered and it’s not from stale BA. I am also hearing a rumor Brady had a hand in the SB defensive plan against KC. It’s not confirmed so relax.

  10. Captain Oblivious Says:

    The Bucs essentially fired BA but it is incremental. Next year he’ll be gone. Unless they keep him as a “consultant” on their already bloated staff.

  11. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Did he ever know what is last job was???

    “Brady loathed playing for Arians”–Greg Bedard, leading Patriot beat writer.

  13. Dooley Says:

    “One more thing,” Arians began, “it’s been great working with you guys in the press. You’ve been fantastic, all over the country, alright? Florio, you can write what you want. It’s OK.”

    It’s more a sign of the times than anything else. Although Arians was considered more laid back than other coaches. He was however a throw back to the Bear Bryant days when you cussed out players kicked em in the behind or whatever was needed to inspire young men. Those days are all but gone. Everybody has to have their ego massaged and they don’t want to be yelled at or singled out in a press conference, (Brady). If you look at the timeline Joe, the whole happy transition just doesn’t add up. There are just too many coincidences that make you believe someone stepped in and kind of pushed B.A. out the door, and I know you don’t believe in coincidence.
