According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Buccaneers have agreed on a “revised contract” with Arians. Per the report, Arians will be getting a pay raise for the remainder of his contract.
It feels worth noting that Arians’ contract is not explicitly an extension. At 68 years old, he’s one of the NFL’s oldest head coaches and has retired from the game in the past.
Arians signed a four-year deal with a fifth-year option to coach the Buccaneers in 2019. He’s got two years left before his option becomes available, though by then he’ll 70.

It’s also worth noting that Tom Brady probably won’t be around by the time Bruce Arians’ contract is up. That could significantly change the dynamic of the team if they don’t have a clear successor by then.
Regardless of Arians finishes his career in Tampa Bay, he will go down as a legend for the franchise. Leading them to a historic Super Bowl win in their home stadium was amazing enough.
If Arians can lead the Buccaneers to a second straight Super Bowl title, he might get consideration for Canton.
