Former Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians has been tapped to be an NFL game analyst starting this fall
He didn’t get the Monday Night Football gig many thought he may end up with. However former Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians is heading to a new analyst role with CBS Sports.
According to Richard Deitsch of The Athletic, he will join the team of Greg Gumbel and Trent Green on Sunday’s this fall. Three-man booths are becoming more and more popular.
When Arians retired after the 2017 season, many believed this was the road he was going to go down so that he could stay in touch with the game. Arians retired so that he could spend more time with his family.
It looks like his Sunday’s will still be occupied and if he is an analyst probably Friday’s and Saturday’s as well. Good for him.
I expected to see BA out of the game for at least a year, take it off, and truly spend all of his time away from the game he has spent decades in. One thing is for sure, he is going to have to watch his language.
One of the things I absolutely loved about BA was him giving his honest opinions. Sometimes he was too honest and used language not always suitable for all.
I’m sure though he must have tested well in order to get the role. Of course with Arians taking on this role, it still leaves a void with Monday Night Football.
That void might not be for long. Former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner made a comment on NFL Network’s schedule release show that lead some to believe he was tipping his hand in joining that booth.
Nothing official has been said about that however and Warner tried to explain it off as nothing when it was brought up later in that show. For now, congratulations to coach on his new job.
