Arians' hiring put struggling Bucs on path to Super Bowl 55

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) It took five coaching changes over a decade-plus of futility before the Tampa Bay Buccaneers finally got it right, luring Bruce Arians out of retirement. Two seasons later, the 68-year-old quarterback expert has them in the Super Bowl.

Signing Tom Brady was a big part of solving the team's woes. So, was the offense-minded Arians' commitment to building a defense capable of giving him a realistic shot at transforming the Bucs from perennial losers into championship contenders.

The two-time NFL Coach of the Year with the Indianapolis Colts and Arizona Cardinals won two Super Bowl rings as an assistant with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He didn't get his first full-time pro head coaching opportunity until he was 61.
