Bruce Arians enjoyed the biggest moment of his coaching career Sunday night, and he celebrated with his mask upside down.

The Buccaneers playcaller locked the first Super Bowl appearance of his NFL head coaching career as Tampa Bay toppled Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in Sunday's NFC Championship game. After the big win, Arians delivered an impassioned speech thanking his family, friends, and team.

And he did so with his mask on upside down.

While addressing the millions of viewers tuned in to the game's national television broadcast, the 68-year-old wore a gray mask featuring the Buccaneers' flag on one side and the Super Bowl LV logo on the other. But both symbols looked off thanks to Arians' mask gaffe, which seemingly no one bothered to inform him.

It's possible Arians was simply too pumped up to care. He excitedly announced that it felt "f------ amazing" to hold the George Halas Trophy and that he had "too many people to thank" for the crowning achievement of his career while standing in front of his team and clutching the shiny George Halas Trophy.

"We're coming home, and we're coming home to win!" he added.

Arians and company will face the winner of Sunday night's AFC Championship game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl LV, where Tampa Bay will become the first team in NFL history to compete in a Super Bowl hosted at its own stadium.
