Arians Might Not Return Next Season
PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians may not return in 2012, according to a report by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Gerry Dulac.
Arians, 57, considered retiring before last season. He is in the final year of his contract.
Arians is highly criticized by some fans for his play calling. Those cries have gotten louder since the Steelers early playoff exit, as many note the offense’s inability to put up points and score touchdowns in the redzone.
He has been the Steelers offensive coordinator since 2007, appearing in two Super Bowls and winning one of them.
Mike Tomlin said in his season-ending press conference that he expects Arians to return next season.
