Report: Bucs revising contracts for Bruce Arians, Jason Licht
The Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed on revised contracts for coach Bruce Arians and general manager Jason Licht, NFL Network reported Monday.
Arians’ new deal includes a pay raise and Licht’s contract “ensures he’ll be in Tampa Bay for multiple years,” according to the report.
Arians, 68, is entering his third season with the Bucs. After going 7-9 in 2019, he led Tampa Bay to an 11-5 record in the regular season and a 31-9 victory against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV.
Licht, 50, has been with the Buccaneers since 2014. Under his watch, the franchise signed longtime New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in free agency in March 2020.
Brady promptly led Tampa Bay to the franchise’s second Super Bowl title — his seventh — and broke the club’s single-season records for pass completions (401) and touchdown passes (40).
The Buccaneers enter the 2021 season having retained all of their starters. They kick off the season on Thursday, Sept. 9, against the Dallas Cowboys at Raymond James Stadium.
