Arians confident Buccaneers not far from playoff contention

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Tampa Bay's bid to lure Bruce Arians out of retirement and back to the NFL included a pitch from baseball manager Joe Maddon.

The 66-year-old coach grew up in York, Pennsylvania, not far from Maddon's hometown of Hazelton. He and the Chicago Cubs skipper have grown close since Buccaneers general Jason Licht introduced them several years ago.

Maddon, 64, managed the Tampa Bay Rays for nine years before moving on to the Cubs in 2015. He lives in Florida during the offseason and owns a popular South Tampa restaurant where he and Arians dined last weekend.
