Tampa Bay Bucs head coach Bruce Arians and offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich are going to have their hands full for the next week.
The two offensive minds have to find a way to keep up with Patrick Mahomes and the high-powered Kansas City Chiefs offense in the Super Bowl a week from Sunday. While the Bucs’ coaching staff remains focused on the task at hand, Bruce Arians couldn’t help but to speak out on the overall job he feels his OC Leftwich has done all season.
According to PFT, Arians thinks Leftwich should have gotten a head coaching job.
“I can’t say enough about the job [Leftwich] has done,” Bucs coach Bruce Arians told Rich Eisen on Tuesday, via JoeBucsFan.com. “I mean, it’s just remarkable.”
Arians didn’t stop there. He claims that he delegated a lot of the offense to Leftwich throughout the season.
“You know, Tom [Brady] is such a great, great player, but having left that system after 20 years, and ours is lot different how we do things, Byron’s been the middle guy that’s just done all the work,” Arians said. “I mean, people give me way too much credit because I don’t do sh-t, really. He does it all. He calls the plays. I’m really upset he didn’t get a head-coaching interview. . . . Byron didn’t even get a call, and I think people give Tom Brady and Bruce Arians way too much credit and not enough credit for Byron Leftwich.”
With the Houston Texans as the only team still needing to fill their head coaching vacancy, it looks like Byron Leftwich will have to wait for his opportunity to lead his own team. He appears to be a rising star in NFL’s coaching world.
