The NFL sent former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians a warning about his conduct on the sideline in Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints. It basically told him that similar conduct will result in discipline toward him and the team.
Arians became very animated when cornerback Marshon Lattimore was not called for pass interference and it led to not only quarterback Tom Brady confronting officials but wide receiver Mike Evans being ejected from the game, along with Lattimore.
After the announcement of the stern letter, former Bucs WR Antonio Brown, who had a sideline incident with Arians last year, took to Twitter and decided to throw shots at his former coach.
“Per source, the NFL sent a warning letter to Bruce Arians and the Buccaneers regarding his sideline activities on Sunday. Said the source as to Arians’s behavior moving forward, “He’ll comply.”
Mike Evans received a one-game suspension. He appealed the punishment, which was upheld by appeals officer James Thrash on Wednesday.
Arians stepped down as head coach of the Buccaneers in March.
