Bruce Arians met with the media today to formally step down as head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But on his way out, he had a message for one specific reporter.

Arians finished his press conference by thanking the press from all over the country for meeting with him over the years. Then he decided to call out ProFootballTalk writer Mike Florio:

"One other thing, it's been great working with you guys in the press. You've been fantastic. All over the country. Alright! Florio, you can write what you want. It's okay," Arians said.

Florio has a habit of getting under peoples' skin with his writing, reporting and rumor spreading. So it's no big shock that Arians isn't exactly crying over not having to talk to him anymore.

Arians' comments have gone viral with thousands of users sharing and liking what he said. The comments are pretty funny too:

"Even the coaches know Florio is (trash)," one fan said in a retweet.

"Florio getting dragged makes any day that much better," wrote another.

"One last W for Arians as he walks away. Legend," a third fan wrote.

Bruce Arians has always been one of the better coaches when it comes to amazing soundbites. As his coaching career comes to an end, it's great that he was able to leave us with one last golden nugget.

Sorry Florio.
