Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ head coach Bruce Arians called the Steelers’ wide receiver a “diva” this week.
“From afar, there’s too much miscommunication, too much … diva,” Arians told ESPN. “I’ve heard so many stories — and I like Antonio, he plays as hard as anybody on Sunday, and he practices hard. He’s just got to make better decisions off the field, be on time, do some of those little things.”
Today Antonio Brown fired back.
Arians was the Steelers’ offensive coordinator from 2007-11. He was the team’s wide receivers coach for three seasons prior to that. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hired him as head coach earlier this month.
