The latest season of 'Coach Swap' is in full swing, with eight NFL coaches being fired since the season's end.
One name connected to several openings is Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who took over as interim head coach for 12 games this season after Chuck Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia.
Arians told XPRS-AM in San Diego that he is interested in the San Diego Chargers job after the team hired former Colts vice president of football operations Tom Telesco on Wednesday.
"I would be [interested] now that Tommy's there," Arians said, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. "I think so much of [the] success that teams have are great relationships between general manager and head coach."
Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians returned to Indianapolis on Monday night after being released from a Baltimore hospital following a 36-hour stay for an undisclosed illness.
Team owner Jim Irsay told The Associated Press in a text message that Arians was accompanied by two team doctors, had been medicated and appeared to be on the mend.
"He was in good spirits (and) is trending (in) right direction," Irsay wrote.
Arians was admitted to the hospital Sunday morning after complaining he felt ill at the team breakfast. Without Arians, quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen called the plays in the 24-9 season-ending loss to the Ravens.
Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians was hospitalized Sunday with an undisclosed illness and was not with the team for its wild-card playoff game against theBaltimore Ravens.
Clyde Christensen, the Colts' quarterback coach, called plays against the Ravens, who defeated Indianapolis 24-9.
Baltimore's suddenly revitalized defense -- inspired by Ray Lewis' pending retirement, no doubt -- never let standout rookie QB Andrew Luck get comfortable.
Indy's only points came on three field goals byAdam Vinatieri, from 47, 52 and 26 yards. Luck completed 28-of-54 passes for 288 yards. It was the most attempts by a rookie in a playoff game.
