Buccaneers’ head coach Bruce Arians looked like himself walking into the training center. Arians was wearing his signature backwards hat and a facemask with his coaching logo on it.
Other coaches that were present were; defensive coordinator, Todd Bowles, offensive line coach, Joe Gilbert, and assistant strength and conditioning coach, Maral Javadifar.
The news should make any football fan excited, one step closer to normalcy. Although coaches are allowed back, players are not. Phase One of the NFL’s reopening strategy took effect after May 15th. This allowed small numbers of staff to be allowed access to their facilities.
Now that coaches are welcome back, players should be granted entry to their facility soon. However, the NFL also released a memo a few weeks ago, telling clubs to rearrange their locker rooms to promote social distancing. So players might have to wait a little bit longer to join their coaches.
The Buccaneers are slowly starting what could be their best season in years. Fans are eagerly awaiting training camp, which should be next month, and getting a glimpse at Tom Brady in full Bucs gear. Brady has already taken a leadership role, and has been working out with his new teammates in small groups.
While players waiting for their chance to return, fans should be hopeful for training camp to return, and for another year of Buccaneers football.
