Bruce Arians says no decisions yet, after leaving “my house”

The widespread expectation is that Cardinals coach Bruce Arians is going to retire today.

But he wouldn’t have been Bruce Arians if he didn’t go out with a smile, and beating the Seahawks on the road to close out an 8-8 season gave him reason to be emotional on a number of levels.

Via Dan Bickley of the Arizona Republic, he was able to get a jab in at his division nemesis, on what everyone figures to be his way out.

Thank you all for coming to my house,” Arians said. “Hope you get home safe. . . .

“There is no better place to celebrate than in this locker room.”

The Cards scrapping back to .500 was a testament to the 65-year-old coach and his staff, since they lost quarterback Carson Palmer and running back David Johnson to injuries, scuttling their playoff hopes.

“To take this group to 8-8 is probably the best job our coaching staff has ever done,” Arians said.

Arians insisted there were no decisions yet on his future, and that he planned to talk to his family today to decide what to do next. But even if it was his last one, he went out in style.

    “This group??” Typical of Arians to take all of the credit while blasting his roster at the same time. What an arrogant turd this guy is. Good riddance Bruce, you’re done.

  2. It is an ugly end to the Sea Gull’s ugly season. They were 4-5 in the last nine games of the season. Bruce Arians is responsible for 1 of those 5 losses. The 49ers were 5-4 in the same time period. Perhaps it is a real change of the guards. Out goes Seattle as contenders for the division championship and in comes the Frisco 49ers.

  3. Arians thinks he is in the running for his 3rd coach of the year award. I can tell you this…..the fact the Seahawks and Carroll didn’t even care about Bruce’s comments all week and after the game tells you all you need to know about the state of Seattle’s football team.

    You need a new hobby.

  5. It ‘may’ be his house, but during his tenure with Arizona, Carroll made Arizona his ‘house’. Arians could beat Seattle at home.
