Mike Evans is ready to make peace with Marshon Lattimore.
The Buccaneers wide receiver intends to apologize to the Saints cornerback for his brutal and unnecessary hit in Week 9 when the teams last played.
Evans on Thursday told ESPN the hit was a bulls— move on his part and it was delivered in the heat of the moment. He added that he will offer his apology to Lattimore at some point during Sunday’s rematch.
Arians retires with two Super Bowl wins on his résumé during his eight seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers as wide receivers coach and offensive coordinator, a job in which he succeeded Ken Whisenhunt, whom Arians later followed as the head coach in Arizona in 2013.
Arians’ coaching career began as a graduate assistant at Virginia Tech in 1975. In 1983, at age 30, he was hired as the head coach at Temple University, where he spent six seasons on the sideline. After he was fired in 1988, he wouldn’t become a head coach again for 25 years.
While he was the Indianapolis Colts’ offensive coordinator in 2012, Arians took over as the interim head coach while Chuck Pagano took a leave to undergo treatment for leukemia. Arians went 9-3 and became the first interim head coach to win Coach of the Year. After years of being passed over for head-coaching jobs, he was hired by the Cardinals on Jan. 17, 2013, making him a first-time head coach at age 60. From there, Arians did everything his way. He hired a staff made up of longtime friends, close allies and former players.
