Cardinals coaching rumors: Bruce Arians draws Arizona's attention

Andy Lyons

Arizona is still searching for a leading man, and is now taking a look at Bruce Arians.

The Arizona Cardinals have been searching for weeks in hopes of finding the right man to be their next head coach.

Their search has brought them to Bruce Arians, the current offensive coordinator of the Indianapolis Colts, who the Cardinals have asked permission to speak with, according to Ian Rapoport.

Arians did a tremendous job in Indianapolis this season, taking over when head coach Chuck Pagano was receiving treatment for leukemia. While Pagano was out, Arians stepped into the top role and guided the Colts to a 9-3 record and AFC Wild Card berth, something thought to be impossible at the start of the year.

Arians also has a Super Bowl ring as an offensive coordinator from 2008, when he helped beat the Cardinals with the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII.

Arizona was also known to be interested in Andy Reid, before he signed on with the Kansas City Chiefs.
