(AP Photo/Ashley Landis)TAMPA, Fla. – Seconds after linebacker Devin White intercepted a pass in the end zone, Tampa Bay coach Bruce Arians started doling out hugs.
Arians unplugged his headset, slipped on a Super Bowl championship hat and braced for the traditional Gatorade shower.
Together, Arians and the 43-year-old Brady helped Tampa Bay win its first championship in 18 years and cemented their spot in the franchise history books.
He took a year off and worked in television before returning to the NFL with Tampa Bay — joining a young team he saw as full of potential.
His biggest coup was landing Brady, who engineered yet another masterpiece and won his seventh Super Bowl after six titles with the Patriots.
