When he gave up his post after the 2021 season to become a team advisor, the 70-year-old said he took this path to avoid staff turnover at the “Bucs”.

“I’m in control right now,” he told NBC Sports at the time. I will not check next February. […] I am 31 years old [entraîneurs et leurs] Families who depend on me. My wife is very adamant that I don’t let these families down.”

The Buccaneers went 8-9 and were outclassed by the Dallas Cowboys in the first round of the playoffs this year.

Among those shown the door was offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich. Four other offensive and two defensive coaches also lost their jobs.

Tampa Bay Times reporter Rick Stroud also recently spoke to Arians.

“He is not happy, even unhappy. Extremely unhappy, Stroud said during his appearance on WDAE Radio. Having had a few conversations with him on this subject, I can say that he is disappointed.

“He wanted to keep these employees and the families together [d’entraîneurs] be together. Many of them still have a year of contract left. Many thought they would be here as long as Todd [Bowles] would be the head coach and isn’t. So he’s hurt. I don’t know if we’ll see a lot of that next year.”
