Bruce Arians has perfect response to coaching Tom Brady

As we all know, Tom Brady is a Tampa Bay Buccaneer, and head coach Bruce Arians couldn't be more excited to have the six-time Super Bowl champion. 

It's not every day you have the opportunity to coach one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, and Arians certainly realizes that. 

When asked what he would have said if you told him a few years back that he'd be coaching Brady, Arians responded in the best way possible. 

Arians is the complete opposite of New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, and he'll likely get along well with Brady in the coming months. After all, Arians won a Super Bowl with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2008 as the offensive coordinator, so he certainly knows a thing or two about winning.

The offensive-minded head coach now will have Brady, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and O.J. Howard to work with going forward, and things are looking up for the Buccaneers.
