Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians has been hired as the Arizona Cardinals' new head coach, the team announced Thursday, shortly after two sources told NFL.com's Ian Rapoport about the deal.
The Cardinals said Arians received a contract for four years, with a team option for a fifth year.
"I never thought it was going to come," Arians said,according to the Cardinals' official website. "I appreciate it so much. I will give it every single thing I have. The passion and energy I bring to this is something I love to do.
"The more I got to meet with everyone here, the more I got excited for the opportunity," Arians added. "I knew it was the right fit for me."
