Buccaneers interview former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians

Bruce Arians is the frontrunner to land the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' head-coaching job, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

If hired, Arians would replace former ASU head coach Dirk Koetter, who was sacked by Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Sources told NFL Network that Arians is interested in filling the role and the NFC South squad is open to the possibility of bringing him in.

However, having spent much of his time in the CBS broadcast booth, the two-time National Football League coach of the year appears to be itching to get back on to the field.

Arians compiled a 49-30-1 record as the Cardinals head coach and also had a 9-3 mark as an interim head coach with the Indianapolis Colts in 2012, when he took over after Chuck Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia. During his first year with the Cardinals in 2013, the team went 10-6 after finishing 5-11 the previous year.

The statement signals Das' bid to emerge as an independent central bank governor and shrug off charges of being close to the government.

But ESPN's Adam Schefter noted Arians knows Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston from his football camps in Alabama, and Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht served as the Cardinals' vice president of player personnel in 2013, Arians' first year as Cards head coach.

Including Arizona, Arians spent a collective 24 years coaching in the NFL.

After Cleveland, Arians was the wide receivers coach and later the offensive coordinator for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Smith lasted just two seasons before being replaced by Koetter, who was his offensive coordinator.
