UPDATED: 3:05 p.m. – Yes, Joe reported yesterday afternoon on good authority that the Bucs plan to announce their new head coach no later than Tuesday.
Also, Joe wrote that the 12th coach in Buccaneers history is expected to be Bruce Arians, though Joe can’t confirm that hire to call it 100 percent.
This afternoon, NFL Network ramped up the Arians hype with a report by Ian Rapoport, who told the TV audience that Arians “at this point is their target” and the feeling is mutual. Early this week, Rapoport shared on Twitter that he was texting with Arians and Arians would listen to the Bucs.
No surprise here at JoeBucsFan.com world headquarters.
UPDATE: The Buccaneers confirmed via Twitter that they have completed their interview with Bruce Arians.
