Former Steelers Offensive Coordinator Bruce Arians Has New Job With Colts

A week ago, it appeared that Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians was headed for retirement -- but now we know otherwise. Arians has instead agreed to become the next offensive coordinator of the Indianapolis Colts, according to ESPN.

The 59-year-old Arians was Mike Tomlin's only offensive coordinator in his first five years in Pittsburgh. He gradually turned the Steelers from a run-heavy team to a passing one, building the offense around Ben Roethlisberger. Steelers sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen that the team let Arians' contract expire rather than retain him, against Roethlisberger's wishes.

Arians has over 35 years experience in coaching. He began his career at his alma mater, Virginia Tech, as a grad assistant in 1975. He broke into the pros as a running backs coach for the Kansas City Chiefs in 1989.
