Eric Bieniemy is going to be a head coach in the NFL after the conclusion of this season. His performance as the offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs has been extremely promising, even if he is paired up with Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes.

Bieniemy has proven that he deserves a chance as the leader of a team, and the Bucs should be the team to give him that shot.
Bieniemy is relatively young by coaching standards, offensively-oriented in a modern sense, and would be heavily interested in coming to Tampa Bay. If the Buccaneers were to make some changes, their roster would be more put together than most teams in the league, making it an attractive landing spot for a first-year head coach.
If you are one of the people who are entirely against a new head coaching during a must-win phase like this, how is this a step down from Arians? The offense would leave the early 2000s, the coaching challenges would immediately improve, and the animosity between the players and coaching staff would quickly dissolve.
By making this move, the Bucs would be able to secure their future without sacrificing the present. Arians is not long for this role, and Tampa Bay will be hard-pressed to find a better option if Arians leaves at an inopportune time.
