Bruce Arians Retires From Coaching

The former interim head coach and quarterbacks coach for the Colts has reportedly coached his last game in the NFL.

It looks like Chuck Pagano wasn't the only one coaching his "last rodeo" yesterday. 

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians is expected to retire from coaching after Arizona's thrilling win in Seattle yesterday to finish the 2017 season.

This could be disappointing to some fans in Indianapolis.

It was thought that perhaps Arians could slide right in to the head coaching vacancy that was expected to be, and now is, open for the Colts.

Arians spent three seasons as quarterbacks coach starting in 1998 and was the first QB coach Peyton Manning had here.

Then in 2012, Arians was hired as offensive coordinator before taking over as interim head coach while Chuck Pagano was battling leukemia. The Colts went 9-3 during his time as interim head coach, made the playoffs, and lost in the first round to the eventual Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens.

If Arians does decide to retire, he will walk away from coaching with a 58-33 record as a head coach during his six seasons in the NFL.
