Cardinals coach Bruce Arians: 'Nothing decided' on future with Arizona

Share

The Arizona Cardinals will reportedly be looking for a new head coach in 2018.

"If you want to ask me about this fake news story that has come up-I'm quoting the President now-nothing has changed", Arians said, according to AZCentral's Bob McManaman. "I don't know where all that s--'s came from".

There were conflicting reports on Tuesday that Arians, 65, had made a decision to retire.

A miffed Arians took a swipe at Tuesday's report from Pro Football Weekly that he already decided on his future, noting he didn't know who was the reporter of the article. Arian said he spends his time thinking about the game at hand - Seattle this week, for example, or the Jets last week.

Arians said he "never" thinks about whether he'll retire, which is why he's exhausted of being asked about it. The report seems to make some sense, especially considering that Arians is 65 and has battled multiple health scares (including prostate cancer), that the Cardinals have posted a disappointing 7-8 mark so far this year, and that they're relying on countless aging veterans like Larry Fitzgerald and Carson Palmer.

And when was the last time something fell correctly for the Browns when it came to a head coach?

Bruce Arians' future in Arizona has been repeatedly questioned as the Cardinals stumble toward a second straight playoff-less season, and Arians has seemingly had enough with the rumors and reports that 2017 will be his final year with the Cardinals.

Arians is 49-32-1 in five seasons with the Cardinals, including the postseason.
