NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports coach Bruce Arians is "good" after Tuesday's trip to the hospital, and he's expected to be released Wednesday.

The 63-year-old was bothered by stomach pain ahead of Tuesday's joint practice with the Chargers and was put in an ambulance and taken to the hospital. He spent the night there, but everything seems to be fine. A true tough guy, Arians should be back on the field with his team in the next day or two.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians was taken to the hospital ahead of Tuesday's practice after he complained of stomach pain.

A prostate cancer survivor, Arians, 63, has been a model of good health since becoming the Cardinals' head man over three years ago. It doesn't sound like anything too serious for Arians, but he's being evaluated in San Diego with the Cardinals in town for joint practices with the Chargers. We'll provide updates as they come, but hopefully this is just a day-to-day thing.

In an interview with HBO's Bryant Gumbel, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians admitted he "was pissed" when the Steelers fired him after the 2011 season.

We're in the midst of a 5-6 week lull on the NFL calendar before training camps open, so anything even remotely interesting is worth talking about. Plus, Arians is the GOAT. He was the Steelers' OC from 2007-2011, but the team decided not to renew his contract in March 2012, and it was announced as a phony "retirement" to save face. "I had done a good job," Arians said. "Maybe not the right image, but it was a damn good job. I was pissed. But again, time heals things." The Steelers are in good hands with OC Todd Haley, but the Cardinals are the real winner having landed two-time Coach of the Year (2012 and 2014) Arians.

The Cardinals have brought in Dr. Jen Welter as a training camp/preseason inside linebackers coaching intern.

Welter is the first ever female coach in the NFL. Just about four months after the NFL hired its first woman official in Sarah Thomas, coach Bruce Arians is giving Welter a chance to impress as a coach. Welter is a Doctor of Sports Psychology and had been working as a coach for the Texas Revolution of the Indoor Football League. Arians openly supported woman coaches at the owners meetings.

Cardinals signed head coach Bruce Arians and GM Steve Keim to contract extensions through 2018.

Financial details aren't yet available, but both will get big raises as part of four-year deals with fifth-year options. Despite a bunch of lost talent on defense and starting quarterback Carson Palmer getting hurt, the Cardinals went 11-5 and made the playoffs for the first time since 2009. Arians, who is now 21-11 in two seasons in charge of the Cards, was named the NFL's Coach of the Year. He came in fourth in Patrick Daugherty's 2015 head-coach rankings, which are accessible at the link below.

It's the second time in three years Arians has won the award. Arians led the Cardinals to an 11-5 record despite losing his top two quarterbacks to injury. He received 39.5 first-place votes, beating out Bill O'Brien, Jason Garrett, Pete Carroll, Jim Caldwell, and Bill Belichick. The Associated Press also named ex-Cardinals DC Todd Bowles its 2014 Assistant Coach of the Year.
