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.
