Bruce Arians is the next head coach of the Arizona Cardinals.
Arians was offered the Cardinals’ job and will accept, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Cardinals met with Arians today and Arians said he got a good feeling from the meeting, and now both sides look like they want to get the deal done.
After being named the offensive coordinator of the Colts last offseason, Arians spent most of the season as the interim head coach while Chuck Pagano was out being treated for leukemia. Arians did an excellent job, leading the Colts from a 2-14 record to the playoffs, and he may receive the NFL’s coach of the year award.
Now Arians will take over as head coach of another team — one that can use his offensive acumen, but one which lacks a quarterback as talented as Andrew Luck.
