Former Colts Coach Bruce Arians Joins Broadcast Booth With CBS Sports

Arians will join Greg Gumbel and Trent Green to form a three-man booth in calling games for the 2018 National Football League season, along with reporter Jamie Erdahl.

When Bruce Arians retired as coach of the Arizona Cardinals this offseason, he said there was a chance he would join the media side of the NFL. The announcement was made today by Sean McManus, Chairman, CBS Sports. When Pagano returned, Arians was hired as head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, where he went 49-30-1 in five seasons, leading Arizona to a division title and a NFC Championship game appearance in 2015.

"I always hoped that broadcasting would be an option after I retired from coaching as a way to stay involved with this great game", said Arians in the network's press release. After working with Peyton Manning as a QB coach, and stints as the offensive coordinator for Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh and Andrew Luck in Indianapolis, Arians landed his first head coaching job in Arizona in 2013. "I am thrilled to have that opportunity with such a class organization as CBS Sports". Arians led the Cardinals to an 11-5 record in 2014 and was named 2014's Associated Press Coach of the Year for the second time in his career.

From Oct. 1 through December 24, an inspired Colts team rallying around their head coach would compile a 9-3 record with Arians leading the way.

Twelve of the Colts' 16 regular season games are scheduled to be broadcast by CBS Sports during the 2018 season, opening the possibility to Arians being on the call for his former team. Arians' first job in the National Football League was with the Kansas City Chiefs as the running backs coach from 1989 to 1992. As a collegiate quarterback at Virginia Tech (1972-74), Arians was voted the team's MVP his senior year setting the school record for most quarterback rushing touchdowns in a season with 11, two more than Michael Vick.
