Will Arizona Cardinals Land Bruce Arians as Next Head Coach?
With all of the head coaching moves being made this week, it’s only a matter of time before the Arizona Cardinals land one as well for the 2013 season. On Wednesday, the team brought Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians in for an interview and with another meeting scheduled for Thursday, it’s difficult not to wonder if he’s the favorite to become the team’s next head coach.
Arians has been praised for what he accomplished this year with the Colts after stepping in as head coach for Chuck Pagano, who was diagnosed with leukemia in September. After winning just two games in 2011 while Peyton Manning was sidelined with a neck injury, Indianapolis became one of the best feel-good stories this past season as they finished with an 11-5 record to earn the No. 5 seed in the playoffs.
What’s even more impressive–Arians helped turn this team around with rookie Andrew Luck leading the way under center. Nobody could have predicted the Colts to turn things around this quickly and for a team that was a complete mess in 2012, who lost 11 of their last 12 games following a 4-0 start.
Who knows, if Arians was capable of helping Luck look like an elite quarterback during his rookie season, maybe there is hope for Kevin Kolb in Arizona after all–but let’s see if he receives an offer for the job first. For all we know, Arians could end up deciding that he wants to wait until next season to see what other offers come along and stick around Indianapolis for one more season.
