According to Pro Football Weekly, the Arizona Cardinals have already agreed to part ways with head coach Bruce Arians. This is not the first-time we have heard that Arians would be leaving the team in the off-season, as there were whispers that he was going to retire following the 2017 campaign dating back to October.

This season, the Cardinals have a 7-8 record, but they have already been eliminated from the playoffs. The 65-year-old will attempt to guide his team to a .500 record with an 8-8 record, if they could defeat the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday.

This is the second straight season that the Cardinals could potentially fail to have a .500 record. They were 7-8-1 last season, finishing second in the NFC West.

Arians is 48-30-1 in his first full-time NFL head coaching gig. He’s also a two-time NFL Coach of the Year, including receiving one as the Cardinals head coach.

He was 34-14 in his first three seasons with the team. However, last season, things began to fall apart, as the team was plagued with injuries. This season, the team also suffered injuries and they could only muster wins against teams with losing records, defeating the Indianapolis Colts, the San Francisco 49ers twice, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the New York Giants on Christmas Eve.

Arians have had to battle health concerns over the past few seasons. The new head coach will have to figure out a lot of things to make the team a playoff contender once again, including figuring out the quarterback of the future.

According to the story, Arians will not be fired by the team. Instead, owner Michael Bidwill and general manager Steve Keim support his decision and will allow him to walk away.
