Tom Brady bid a warm farewell to Bruce Arians after stepping down as Bucs head coach: “It’s been a privilege to play for you.”
On Wednesday, Bucs head coach Bruce Arians announced his retirement from coaching after three years at Tampa Bay.
Almost immediately, Tom Brady took to social media to share his thoughts on Arians and his decision.
“Thank you BA for everything you have done for me and our team. You’re an incredible man and coach and it was a privilege to play for you,” Brady wrote in an Instagram post, thanking Arians for recruiting him to play for the Bucs and then all of their goals together to reach.

“Thank you BA for everything you have done for me and our team. You are an incredible man and coach and it was a privilege to play for you. You are a true NFL legend and a pioneer for all the work you have done to make the league more diverse and inclusive.
Smart, tough and loyal are some of the words to describe your style. I will always remember the conversations we had when you hired me two years ago and all the things we discussed have come true. We have all benefited from your guidance and guidance and I am so proud of all that we have accomplished. You were a big part of the decision to join the Bucs and I am forever grateful to you.
I am so happy that you will be spending some well-deserved time with your loving and supportive family who have given so much to our communities. Congratulations on an amazing coaching career but more importantly how you have positively impacted me and everyone else in football.
Tom Brady on Bruce Arians after retirement: ‘It was a privilege to play for you’
Brady left the Patriots to join Tampa Bay in 2020, a year after Arians got the job there, and the two found instant success. They won the Super Bowl at the end of that first season together and went 13-4 in 2021 before losing to the Rams in the playoffs this year.
This 2020 championship was the first in Arian’s career as a head coach. Getting Brady to join was clearly a major victory for Arians and the city of Tampa Bay.
However, Brady and Arians’ partnership is not over yet. While Todd Bowles will be the team’s new head coach, Arians is joining Tampa Bay’s front office as a football advisor, so he’ll still be around.
