A report has emerged that Cardinals coach Bruce Arians won’t return to the team for a sixth season in 2018. Arians has responded to that report on Twitter.

“Hearing reports I’m retiring,” Arians said. “News to me. Nothing could be further from truth [and] 100% focused on getting back on track at SF!”

Craig Fouhy of ABC15.com reported that Arians has told people close to him that he intends to retire after the 2017 season. If it’s accurate, it makes sense that Arians would deny it; surely, he doesn’t want to become a distraction to a team that still has plenty of football to play.
