Recently retired head coach Bruce Arians had a pretty fascinating statement on offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich.
Leftwich has been the offensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the last two seasons, though Arians thinks that a lot of pundits haven’t given him the credit he deserves.
Part of that was due to him and quarterback Tom Brady getting too much credit.
“I get credit and Brady gets way too much credit for what Byron does with our offense,” Arians said. “One of the reasons I hope he gets all the credit he deserves this year is to get a coaching gig. He had about four or five teams real interested last year. I would anticipate him to be a head coach real fast.”
Leftwich will have total control of the offense this season without Arians on the field. Brady will obviously have some input since he decided to return, but Leftwich will get to run the show.
Todd Bowles will run the defensive side of the ball but will be involved in some of the game planning on offense now that he’s the head coach.
The Buccaneers will look to average 30 points per game again next season as they were second in the league in 2021 for points per game.
