Tom Brady will have a third NFL head coach in his storied career.

On Wednesday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a surprising announcement that head coach Bruce Arians is stepping down as head coach. Arians will transition to the front office as a Senior Football Consultant.

Defensive coordinator Todd Bowles is being promoted to head coach.

Following the news, Brady put out a reaction via his Instagram page. Brady thanked Arians for his support and pointed out the impact his leadership had on the Bucs.

“Thank you, BA for all that you have done for me and our team,” wrote Brady. “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…

“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.”
