Former Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians came out of retirement to take a head coaching position with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Buccaneers announced Tuesday.

Arians is 66 years old, and retired from the Arizona Cardinals following the 2017 season. A two-time coach of the year with a background coaching quarterbacks, he stepped down as the Arizona head coach after a five-year run that saw him post a 49-30-1 record. According to the Tampa Bay Times, "Arians reportedly did not bring a doctor's note to his interview with the Bucs".

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Buccaneers are signing Arians to a four-year contract with a fifth-year option.

Rapoport notes several former Cardinals coaches as targets for Arians' staff.

Kliff Kingsbury to interview; Cardinals have ‘strong mutual interest’
Kingsbury has already spoken with with the Arizona Cardinals since USC chose to allow him to speak to professional teams. It was reported earlier that the Jets had interest in interviewing Kingsbury as a possible replacement for Todd Bowles.

Jason Licht previously worked with the Cardinals during the tenure of Arians.

Arians has also reportedly brought on former National Football League quarterback and Cardinals offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich to run his offense. Dungy hold the top spot in Bucs history with a.563 mark, while Gruden managed just a.509 to go along with the team's only Lombardi Trophy. Arians' replacement Steve Wilks went 3-13 in his first and only season before being fired.

With the hiring of Bruce Arians, they shouldn't have to worry about either for a while.
