According to Craig Fouhy from ABC 15, Arizona Cardinals Head Coach Bruce Arians has told people close to him that 2017 will be his last year as head man of the team. Fouhy says he got confirmation from 2 other NFL coaches who knew of the situation.
Arians has denied the report, tweeting that his only focus is on the San Francisco 49ers
Were Arians to retire, it wouldn’t surprise us very much. Carson Palmer is 38 years old and the Cardinals don’t have a legitimate plan to replace him. Arians is 65 years old and a rebuild process is probably not want the coach is looking for. Also, he had surgery in February after doctors discovered a form of kidney cancer.
Whatever he decides to do, he’s had a hell of a career.
