AP Source: Cardinals Hire Arians as Head Coach

Quote :
The Arizona Cardinals have filled the NFL's final head coaching vacancy by hiring Indianapolis offensive coordinator Bruce Arians.

The team confirmed the hiring in a release Thursday night, saying Arians received a four-year contract with a club option for a fifth year.

The 60-year-old longtime assistant went 9-3 as Colts interim head coach while Chuck Pagano was undergoing treatment for leukemia last season.

Arians arrived in Arizona on Wednesday night, had dinner with top team officials, then interviewed on Thursday and met with reporters to indicate his interest in the job.

He was offered and accepted the job Thursday night. Arians also was a finalist for the Chicago job that went to Marc Trestman.

Arians was the sixth known candidate interviewed to replace Ken Whisenhunt, who was fired after six seasons.

Whisenhunt was introduced on Thursday as the offensive coordinator for new head coach Mike McCoy in San Diego.

The Cardinals said Arians would be introduced as coach at a 3 p.m., EST news conference on Friday.

I think a lot of people are about to find out what the Steelers fanbase already knows. BA is not head coaching material.

In Indy, he had a team motivated by their ill coach. A team destined to be successful (at least until the playoffs), and actually somewhat talented. In Arizona I believe he's going to run in to a large problem - LACK OF TALENT.

Then again with BA being the head coach, he can't screw up the offense.
