We always knew Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians was great, but this metric was one of the few areas we never though to look into.
Bruce Arians is one of the best coaches in the NFL. The Buccaneers have forever changed their trajectory by adding one of the best minds in the sport, and a huge part of this success stems from Arians on the field and the front office.
The game plan is better, the draft picks have become some of the best in the league, and Arians heads up one of the best staffs in the NFL from top to bottom.
There are numerous assistants throughout the Bucs that should be favorites to take over as head coaches soon enough, showing the success associated by being an Arians-led team goes beyond the on-field success.
From winning Super Bowls to Coach of the Year acknowledgments, Arians is surely a lock to make it into Canton one day, but a recent poll suggests something surprising with the outlook on Arians from the public.
When Arians evaluates his many accomplishments at the end of his career, he can add to his resume the results from this seemingly-legitimate poll that lists him as the 14th hottest coach in the NFL.
Fourteenth is good for top half. Fourteenth gets you into the playoffs in the modern format. Fourteenth is nothing to turn your nose at.
In fact, finishing in 14th for Arians is even more impressive when considering his age relative to his peers. The only other “older looking” coaches in the top half were Bill Belichick and Pete Carroll. Arians was even able to add some votes as a “perfect 10” according to the voting as well.
Football coaches are rarely known for their looks, but this is still a funny stat to see during the part of the season where everyone is on edge ahead of the playoffs. People find success attractive, and Arians is certainly successful. Oh, and it is hard to resist the Kangol hat.
