Bucs’ Bruce Arians: “Hell No” I Won’t Retire

Bruce Arians is having too much fun to stop now. If the Buccaneers win the Super Bowl, the veteran head coach says he won’t be tempted to leave on a high note.

Hell no,” said Arians when asked about the possibility of retirement (Twitter link via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times). “I’m going for two. If the Glazers will have me back.

At least, it was a fair question. Arians, 68, has retired twice before. Most recently, he retired as the Cardinals’ head coach after the 2017 season. He was also claimed to be walking away in 2011, when he parted ways with the Steelers.

Arians has won two Super Bowls as an assistant, but he’ll be going for his first ring as a head coach. Win or lose, the Glazers will almost certainly want him back. The same goes for wide receiver Antonio Brownthe Bucs reportedly want to re-sign the controversial star, who has stayed out trouble since coming to Tampa Bay. In the regular season, Brown caught 45 passes for 483 yards and four touchdowns in eight games.

    How many times will we hear the word “retire” during the SB? Should be a drinking game…..

    He “retired” already. Ya know when the Steelers dumped him for no good reason.

    Hoping chiefs blow out bucs so I don’t have to hear about Tom Brady anymore.

      I seriously think the NFL is oblivious as to how the greater majority actually feel about Tom Brady. The overall majority of my facility at work is bored with him at this point and the Super Bowl will work as background noise.

      The annual office pool and squares have been cancelled due to lack of interest.

        bored of the best QB of all time? what does he have to do to not be boring?

          Haters gonna hate. And why should it matter to the NFL if people are bored with Tom Brady? Are you insinuating that they should somehow force him to lose in the playoffs. Just cause the dude is the biggest winner of all time doesn’t make him boring.

      Well sorry to pop your balloon but that ain’t happening. The Chiefs may win but they certainly will not blow out the Bucs. Personally I see this as a three point or less game one way or the other. Go Bucs!

  4. Yep it is

    Arians is a quitter. He quit on the Cardinals when it got tough. He will quit here when it gets tough. Anyone on the street who knew a little about football could of coached this team to where it is. It had ZERO to do with him.

    Bold prediction. The best indicator for Arians retirement is when Brady retires.
