Ex-Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has joined CBS sports as a game analyst.
"I always hoped that broadcasting would be an option after I retired from coaching as a way to stay involved with this great game," Arians said in a statement. "I am thrilled to have that opportunity." Arians will be paired with Greg Gumbel and Trent Green on Sundays. Sometimes the best television prospects have a way of not panning out, but Arians is certainly a promising one. May 3 - 3:08 PM

In an interview with Sports Illustrated's Peter King, Bruce Arians suggested he'll attend Jets training camp this summer.

Arians promised he'll "be in a training camp this summer" while adding "it might be the Jets." The former Cardinals coach is a close friend of Todd Bowles, who served as Arians' defensive coordinator for two seasons in Arizona before leaving to coach the Jets in 2015. According to ESPN's Rich Cimini, if Arians does attend Jets' camp, it would likely be an "informal" visit. The 65-year-old announced his retirement from coaching amid health concerns last week.
Jan 12 - 2:43 PM

Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians has retired.

No matter how it is announced, a coach very rarely unilaterally decides to step down, but that seems to be the case here. Despite back-to-back disappointing seasons, the Cardinals would have been happy to see Arians return, but the 65-year-old coach is stepping away after dealing with multiple health issues over the last several seasons including kidney cancer. Arians’ decision could prompt similar ones from Larry Fitzgerald and Carson Palmer, who flirt with retirement after every season at this point in their careers. With the coach out the door, the No. 1 receiver potentially following him, and long-term questions at quarterback even if Palmer decides to return, the Cardinals are at a crossroads.
Jan 1 - 11:37 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Cardinals coach Bruce Arians is expected to "step away" from coaching after this season.

Arians has yet to make an official decision, but he seems to be leaning toward retirement. The 65-year-old has had numerous health scares throughout his coaching tenure including earlier this year when he had surgery to remove a cancerous piece of his kidney. If Arians retires as most are expecting, veterans Carson Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald could follow him out the door. Even with so many moving parts to consider, the Arizona job should be an appealing one for prospective head coaches. Todd Bowles and Bill O'Brien have both been linked to the Cardinals in recent weeks.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians says he will not decide his future until after this week's finale against the Seahawks.

There have been conflicting reports on Arians' future plans. In true 2017 fashion, he called the speculation "fake news." Arians said he could take until February to decide what to do, but that's not going to happen. The coaching carousel moves too quickly. Arians turned 65 in October.
Tue, Dec 26, 2017 02:25:00 PM

ESPN's Dianna Russini reports Cardinals coach Bruce Arians does not plan to step down after the season.

ESPN's Josh Weinfuss adds a Pro Football Weekly report saying the two sides will "agree to part ways" after the season is "100 percent not true." Weinfuss does add the decision will be Arians' to make, leaving open the possibility the coach decides to walk. We should know who is right by this time next week. Arians is 48-30-1 in five seasons with the Cardinals including a trip to the NFC Championship Game in 2015.

Pro Football Weekly reports Bruce Arians and the Cardinals will "agree to part ways" after the season.

Pro Football Weekly is not a usual Rotoworld source, so take this with a grain of salt. Still, it would not be surprising if Arians, who has dealt with multiple health issues over the last couple years, decides to step away from coaching. Arians is 48-30-1 in five seasons with the Cardinals including a trip to the NFC Championship Game in 2015. If Arians decides to go, it could push Larry Fitzgerald closer to the door.
Tue, Dec 26, 2017 09:42:00 AM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians hasn't told the Cardinals if he plans to return in 2018.

Arians is signed through 2018, but has struggled with health issues. It's possible he walks away after two straight non-winning seasons. The Cardinals have Texans coach Bill O'Brien and Jets coach Todd Bowles at the top of their list of potential replacements, though neither is a lock to be fired. Arians has a media job waiting for him if he retires.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians (illness) has confirmed he will coach in 2017, and hopes to continue coaching beyond this year.

It was revealed on Tuesday that Arians was diagnosed with kidney cancer in December, and underwent surgery in February. "We'll re-evaluate it at the end of next year, and hopefully we'll be ready for another one," Arians said Thursday. Arians also said he would at least like to finish out his contract, which runs through 2018. Arians turns 65 in September. It appears he will be a year-to-year proposition going forward in Arizona.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has revealed he coached through kidney cancer in 2016.

Arians was diagnosed with "renal cell carcinoma" in December. He had to have a "small portion" of his kidney removed in February. Arians, who also battled other health issues last season, says he's back to 100 percent. "Now I feel great," Arians said. "My energy has returned. I’m told I’m cancer-free again. I’m ready for at least one more season of NFL football — maybe more." It's a stunning admission from Arians, who turns 65 in October. One of the league's best coaches, it would be a shame were 2017 to be Arians' final season.
Tue, Jul 11, 2017 04:10:00 PM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he will be back in 2017.

Arians had multiple health scares this year, leading to speculation he will step down after the season. Arians has consistently squashed those rumors, however, saying, "I ain't going nowhere." The two-time Coach of the Year will be back to attempt a rebound from his first losing season as a head coach in the NFL.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians (chest pains) will coach the team in Week 12.

The salty sea captain of a coach was back at work on Tuesday. Now 64, Arians has dealt with stomach and chest pains this season. Coaching professional football takes a toll.
Tue, Nov 22, 2016 01:33:00 PM

Coach Bruce Arians (chest pains) was released from the hospital and sent home on Monday.

Great news. Arians has had a couple of hospital visits over the course of this year, but neither has resulted in anything serious. He should be back to work shortly and will probably be coaching the team in Week 12.
Mon, Nov 21, 2016 09:01:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has been hospitalized due to chest pains.

Schefter reports tests so far have been "favorable." Arians also visited the hospital in training camp because of stomach pain, but he was able to rejoin the team quickly. Hopefully the same script plays out here. We wish him the best.
Mon, Nov 21, 2016 11:49:00 AM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians is on the sidelines Friday night.

Arians spent Tuesday night at the hospital after complaining of stomach pain, but he was released Wednesday. He appears to have escaped without any serious concerns. The two-time coach of the year and prostate cancer survivor should be fine moving forward.
