Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady shared a heartfelt message on Instagram following Bruce Arians' retirement decision.

While there has been talk of tension between Brady and Arians, the two are not backing those rumors up.

"Thank you, BA for all that you have done for me and our team. You are an incredible man and coach, and it was a privilege to play for you. You are a true NFL legend and pioneer for all the work you have done to make the league more diverse and inclusive.

Smart, tough, and loyal are a few of the words to describe your style. I will always remember the conversations we had when you recruited me two years ago and all of the things we discussed came true 💯. We all benefited from your leadership and guidance and I’m so proud of everything we accomplished. You were a huge part of the decision to join the Bucs and I’m forever grateful.

I’m so happy you will spend the much-deserved time with your loving and supportive family that has given so much to our communities. Congratulations on an amazing coaching career but more importantly, how you positively impacted me and everyone else in the game of football," Brady wrote on Instagram.

Arians had a two-word response to his quarterback: "Thanks brotha."

Brady and Arians won a Super Bowl together in Tampa Bay and contended for another this past season.

The Bucs will now be led by Todd Bowles.
