The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are finalizing a deal to make Bruce Arians their next head coach, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Dianna Russini.
Arians, who retired following the 2017 season coaching the Arizona Cardinals, has spent the 2018 NFL season working as a game analyst for CBS.

Todd Bowles will be Arians' defensive coordinator according to the story and Byron Leftwich, former Cards OC, will a passing game coordinator. Perhaps Arians' biggest task will be getting the most out of Winston, who the team said would return prior to hiring Arians. The story added Winston attended Arians' football camp as a youth in Alabama.
