Rich Ohrnberger reacts to Bruce Arians news
Rich Ohrnberger reacted on Twitter Wednesday night to the big Bruce Arians news.
Ohrnberger is a former NFL player and Tom Brady teammate who has since worked in the media. He also is close friends/ex-college teammates with a Tampa Bay Buccaneers assistant coach. He created headlines in February when he said that the relationship between Brady and Arians was souring. Ohrnberger reported that Brady and Bucs offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich would get frustrated when Arians made changes to the gameplans the two spent all week developing.
Apparently, while Arians was rehabbing the achilles in the early mornings, offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and Brady would work on the week's game plan. Arians would later come in and take the red pen to work they'd done. The QB and OC felt undermined, there was tension.

So when it was announced on Wednesday that Arians was moving from head coach to a front office role with Tampa Bay, many immediately connected the news to Ohrnberger’s report. After all, the Arians news came less than three weeks after Brady announced his return.
It wasn’t hard to connect the dots and speculate that Arians being replaced was a condition of Brady’s return to Tampa Bay.
Ohrnberger certainly seems to think that’s what happened.
Ohrnberger retweeted the news story about Arians being replaced by Todd Bowles as Buccaneers head coach.
Then he tweeted the following GIF:

That’s Ohrnberger basically saying “I told you so.”
Ohrnberger may have gotten some other reports wrong, but on this matter, he appears to have been ahead of the curve.
