It sounds like the Buccaneers have got their sights set on a new head coach, as reports from Ian Rapoport say that the team wants to hire former Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians to lead the team.

The team gave Arians a physical when they met with him, and his physical condition is of concern, but the team will make sure that he’s healthy before turning the team over to him.
Via JoeBucsFan.com, Jay Glazer of FOX explained on Colin Cowherd’s radio/TV show that the Arians interview included a trip to a local hospital. Glazer explained that he’s heard of no team taking that kind of precautionary step regarding a candidate for a head-coaching job.
It’s justified in this specific case. Arians, 66, has had several health issues over the years, included a bout with prostate cancer and a 2016 case of kidney cancer.
