Bruce Arians isn't going anywhere.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach announced following Sunday's 30-27 divisional-round loss to the Los Angeles Rams that he will return for the 2022 campaign, according to Fox Sports' Sara Walsh.

Arians and the Bucs' ambitions for a second straight Super Bowl were spoiled despite a late comeback effort. Tampa Bay rallied from 24 points down to tie the contest before a 44-yard reception by Cooper Kupp set up a game-winning field goal to send the Rams through.

"Can't say enough about all of them," Arians said. "The guys that stepped in, stepped up, all the receivers, (defensive backs), and everybody else this year that was a part of this journey.

"It's a shame we didn't complete it."

Arians became the oldest head coach to win a Super Bowl when Tampa Bay took down the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV last season. Since taking the Bucs job in 2019, the 69-year-old has accumulated a 31-18 record, with 24 wins coming in the past two campaigns.
