It took one year for the Arizona Cardinals winningest coach in franchise history to get back into the game.

Although, it is with a new team, with no compensation coming the Cardinals way, Bruce Arians is likely to be named the new head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

This is an interesting development.

A year after citing health issues and a need to spend more time with his family, after two hospital stays during his time as head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, Arians is taking another shot at head coach.

He is going to a situation that most would describe as as bad if not worse off than the Arizona Cardinals, but here he is.

It begs the question, what is your reaction as an Arizona Cardinals fan?

For me, it is not really that much of an issue. Arians tenure in Arizona seemed to have gone as far as it would, especially with his hesitation to make changes to his coaching staff.

Add to the fact he would have been grooming a new quarterback for the first time in six season and it made sense that the marriage would amicably end.

However, the way it happened, the reasons involved, are tough to understand, as well as his decision to choose Tampa.

Sure, it is close to his forever home, about a seven hour drive, but is the situation good enough?

That is the thing that Cardinals fans have seemed to struggle with in Arians decision, that the Bucs aren’t exactly the Cleveland Browns.

However, as far as this fan goes, I wish nothing but luck to Arians and hope he has as much success, except against the Cardinals, as he did in his time in Arizona.


How do you feel about Bruce Arians taking another head coaching job?
