How much does age matter when hiring NFL head coaches

With one season as the interim coach for the Indianapolis Colts and five seasons leading the Arizona Cardinals, Arians returns after a one-year retirement with a.636 career winning percentage as a head coach.

After retiring from coaching for a year, former Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians is coming back to the National Football League sidelines.

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

Earlier, the Times reported that Arians was planning to bring most of his coaching staff from the Cardinals to Tampa Bay, including recently fired Jets head coach Todd Bowles as his defensive coordinator.

Arians had previously said he would only be interested in the Cleveland job, but later said he would listen to offers in Tampa due to his relationship with Jason Licht.

Arians spent the 2018 season in broadcasting. 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. Rapoport added that Arians hopes to finalize deals with Harold Goodwin as run game coordinator-offensive line coach, Byron Leftwich as pass game coordinator and Clyde Christianson as quarterbacks coach.

With the hiring of Bruce Arians, they shouldn't have to worry about either for a while. Former Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury was hired as Arizona's next head coach on Tuesday.
