On January 8 of 2019, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hired former Arizona Cardinals leader Bruce Arians in hopes of returning the franchise to the playoffs for the first time since 2007. The hiring means Arians ties Bill Belichick as one of the oldest NFL head coaches in the league, but who has the most seniority entering the 2019 season?
Arians and Belichick clock in at 66 years of age, but Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks has them both beat by a year at the age of 67. Carroll enters the 2019 campaign with a regular season winning percentage of .622 in Seattle, which dovetails his .836 career mark at USC from 2001-09.
