- The Buccaneers' next head coach will be Bruce Arians, according to multiple reports. It came after the Bears lost defensive coordinator Vic Fangio to the Broncos as their new head coach, leaving an opening for Bowles to lead the NFL's top-ranked defense in Chicago.

"Byron Leftwich will be calling the plays", said Arians, who had a number of health-related issues throughout his coaching career.

Arians replaces Dirk Koetter, who was dismissed December 30 after leading the Bucs to 19 wins and no playoffs berths over the past three seasons. Bears defensive backs coach Ed Donatell could be the top choice for Nagy as defensive coordinator. They haven't won a postseason game since their 2002 Super Bowl run under Jon Gruden.

General manager Jason Licht also interviewed Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards and Dallas Cowboys defensive backs coach and defensive passing game coordinator Kris Richard.

Arians and Bowles worked together during their time in Arizona.
