Following the hiring of new head coach Bruce Arians, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have reportedly struck a deal with Todd Bowles to be their new defensive coordinator.

Bowles was relieved of his duties as the head coach of the New York Jets after the team finished with a dismal 4-12 record this past season.

He will now rejoin Arians and coordinate a Buccaneers defense that gave up the sixth-most total yards and 29 points on average per game in 2018.

It was earlier reported that Bowles had to choose between accepting a job with either the Bucs or the Chicago Bears. Clearly he made his choice.
