24 hours from now, former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians will be inducted into the team's Ring of Honor.

Arians racked up a 31-18 during his tenure as the Buccaneers coach, winning a Super Bowl in 2020. Before he receives the honor on Sunday, Arians made his future coaching plans very clear.

They don't exist. The Buccaneers front office executive made it clear he doesn't plan to coach in the league again.

"Would I love to be coaching? Yeah,” Arians said, via the Tampa Bay Times. “It kills me to go upstairs. I’m on the sideline in pregame and it kills me to have to go upstairs and just sit there….It’s hard…I’ve done it my whole life. I’m smart enough to know it’s over.”

Despite his clear statement, fans are clamoring for Arians to come back.

"Bruce, idk how you maybe can't hear it, or why you're ignoring it, but the Bucs sideline is SCREAMING for you to come back for just a few games," one fan pleaded.

"Please come back," added another.

What do you think of his decision?
