Arizona Wildcats offensive line coach Joe Gilbert is leaving for the same position with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

Gilbert joined the UA staff prior to the 2018 season after six years with the Indianapolis Colts with whom he was an offensive line coach.

Gilbert is reuniting with Bruce Arians, who was recently named the Bucs’ head coach. Arians was on the Colts’ staff in 2012 with Gilbert.

Arizona’s offensive line had a lot of moving parts in Gilbert’s lone season due to injuries and suspensions, but the unit still fared admirably, allowing the fourth-fewest sacks in the Pac-12 and paving the way for a ground game that led the conference in rushing.
