With a new head coach in Todd Bowles, the Buccaneers got their offseason program underway this week.

While former head coach Bruce Arians’ resignation came as a late-March surprise, linebacker Lavonte David on Tuesday expressed his excitement to see Bowles take over in the role.

“I love it. I love the move. It’s a great thing, just putting the right guy in front,” David said, via Greg Auman of TheAtheltic.com. “I think everybody’s going to love him, everybody’s going to get along with him. I talked to him, he said, ‘You guys, the defensive guys, know me already.’ You won’t get bad words from anybody talking about Bowles. Coach Bowles is a great dude, a team-first guy, he’s a player-first guy.

“It’s just going to give the opportunity to the offense, throughout this process, for guys on the offense to get to learn and get to know him. I’m sure it’s going to be great things. I’m very happy for him.”

David, who’s played the entirety of his 10-year career with the Buccaneers, was convinced Bowles would be a head coach again at some point.

“If it wasn’t here, eventually it was going to be somewhere else,” David said. “But definitely a guy who you definitely want to go out there and play hard for, for a full four-quarters, full football game.”

  1. For Lavonte, 2022 will make it 11 seasons and 5 head coaches with the same team. As crazy as that sounds, what makes it even more wild is that there was a Super Bowl win in there

  2. We loved him in Miami … and rooted for him to stay on … he will do well in 2022.

  3. I’m a Cowboys fan but I’m happy for Coach I think he should have gotten another shot with a real organization and here it is. Good Luck Coach!
