REPORT: Bruce Arians Could Step Down As Head Coach If Bucs Win Super Bowl LV
Today just might be the final game as head coach for Bruce Arians. The 45-year NFL veteran could be hanging up his clipboard for good if his team can go out and defeat the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, there’s a greater-than-zero percent chance that the Super Bowl will be his last game. The report goes on to say that if he steps down, then it will pave the way for defensive coordinator Todd Bowles to be promoted to the head coaching position.
If you were wondering, the last head coach to ride off into the sunset after a Super Bowl win was Dick Vermeil after leading the Rams to victory in Super Bowl XXXIV. That was short lived as he soon returned to coach the Kansas City Chiefs for several years before retiring for good.
Bill Parcells also retired briefly after winning Super Bowl XXV with the Giants before coming back years later.
Will Arians be the one coach to win it all, retire, and then stay that way?
