TEMPE, Ariz. — Despite a report to the contrary, Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday he has not made a decision on whether or not he’ll coach next season.
Arians said he’s getting “a little tired” of all the questions about what he’ll do next season after Pro Football Weekly reported he and the team will part ways after the season.
“If you want to ask me about this fake news story that has come up — I’m quoting the president now — nothing’s changed,” Arians said. “I don’t know where all that s—‘s came from. Nothing’s changed in the last month, and everybody keeps asking the same question.”
Arians said he “never” thinks about whether he’ll retire or not, which is why he’s tired of being asked about it. Arian said he spends his time thinking about the game at hand — Seattle this week, for example, or the Jets last week.
“There’ll come a time and place when we decide what we’re going to do,” Arians, 65, said.
When that time will be, though, he doesn’t yet know.
“We’ll come back on the plane (Sunday night) and get everything finalized through the season, get all the reports (done), like we always do, get all our end-of-the-season business done,” he said.
“(Then I’ll) sit down with my wife, son and daughter and we’ll talk about it and see what we want to do. Make a decision sometime between Monday and February.”
