Bruce Arians announces retirement from coaching


It's official. A teary Bruce Arians said he is retiring.

He is the Cardinals' winningest coach in history and led the Cardinals to their most successful five-year run ever.

It's not really a surprise that Arians is stepping away; there have been rumors and reports for months that 2017 would be his last season with Arizona, though he shot them down each time he was asked. He arrived with a swagger and the plan to do it his way, weaving his "no risk-it, no biscuit" and "coach 'em hard, hug 'em later" philosophies with his "cool uncle" persona.

Bruce Arians has announced his retirement. Fantastic five-year stint as coach of the Cardinals. But it also contributed to the Cardinals' demise the past two seasons as, in part, defenses figured out the Cardinals' offense, and Arians was slow to counter with an intermediate passing game.

This year's roster was ravaged by injury, leaving Arians to compete without Palmer, star running back David Johnson and a flood of supporting characters including Adrian Peterson, John Brown, Robert Nkemdiche, Deone Bucannon and Markus Golden. Several other general managers have heard rumblings of the Cardinals perhaps making wholesale changes as well, beyond just the coaching staff, and the process could become a little complicated there. If Arians never returns to the National Football League, at least he entertained fans with his outspoken personality and colorful language. Arians, the Colts offensive coordinator in 2012, took over as the interim head coach while Chuck Pagano underwent cancer treatments and battled leukemia.

However, Arians could latch on with another team as a head coach or coordinator. Again, this all depends on whether Arians wants to return to the sidelines. In fact, one coach has already been let go as the Detroit Lions fired head coach Jim Caldwell early this morning after four seasons after both Jack Del Rio and Chuck Pagano were fired yesterday by the Oakland Raiders and Indianapolis Colts, respectively. And if they made a decision to retire, Arizona would have no choice but to kickstart its own rebuild.
