Bruce Arians getting the Cardinals coaching gang back together in Tampa Bay

Arians, 66, is a two-time National Football League coach of the year with a background coaching quarterbacks, including Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Carson Palmer.

With five years of coaching with the Cardinals, Arians racked up a 50-32 record including the playoffs and steps away as the winningest coach in franchise history.

Gruden was sacked 10 years ago this month.

Arians is a two-time Associated Press NFL Coach of the Year.

Arians was believed to be the front-runner all along because of his familiarity with Licht, who was vice president of player personnel for two seasons in Arizona before moving to Tampa Bay as GM in 2014.

There's a new captain on board in Tampa Bay. Now we will see if he can work the same magic with the Bucs that he did for the first three years he coached the Cardinals.

That responsibility will fall to Byron Leftwich, who played quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers while Arians was their offensive coordinator, and began his coaching career under Arians with the Arizona Cardinals. Since 2017, however, he's missed eight games and nine starts, failing to convince Koetter in 2018 that he belonged as Tampa's full-time starter.

The day after Koetter was sacked, Licht made it clear that whoever wound up replacing the coach would inherit Winston as his starting quarterback.

Winston will carry a cap hit of $20.9 million on the fifth-year option of his rookie deal in 2019. Jacksonville's Blake Bortles (76) is the only QB who's turned it over more over the past four seasons.

He has a reputation for developing quarterbacks like Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Andrew Luck.
