Bruce Arians Retires
Jan., 1, 2018 - It's official - after a whirlwind of rumor, retraction and more rumor about Bruce Arians' status with the Cardinals, the team posted on its website: "The 65-year-old Arians announced he was indeed going to retire after five seasons with the Cardinals, a move not unexpected but the first domino in what could be an offseason of significant change for the franchise."

Other than that BA's down-to-earth coaching style and "cool uncle" personna was something unique and special - there haven't been too many coaches like BA (if any) that we're aware of.

I'll add that anyone who feels that "changing coaches is no more complicated than changing yout socks", is headed for a huge awakening. Teams take on the personalities of their head coaches, and a HC in the NFL has to be multi-talented - a first-rate evaluator of talent, good at assembling quality staff, well-organized, good teacher, good leader - both handling adversity and success, forward thinking - both in X's and O's and with Big Picture approaches to off-the-field disciplins as strength & conditioning, nutrition and psychology.

I'm sorry to see BA go - I had hoped he'd stick with us for another season. As more info comes in, I'll add additional comments. - JGG
