The News Herald: Arians to Interview for Job in Cleveland

Speaking of Bruce Arians, it seems like Indy's offensive coordinator may be a Brown next season; according to The New Herald's Jeff Schudel, Arians is high on the short list of possible candidates to take over in Cleveland. Whether this means he will leave or not remains to be seen; regardless, after seeing Indy's offense flounder like they did against Baltimore, you'd wonder whether the Colts should make an effort to keep him.

Arians was the Browns offensive coordinator from 2001-2003 before being fired by Butch Davis after the Browns points production dipped from 344 in 2002 to 254 one season later. But interest in Arians has nothing to do with harking back to the only season (2002) the Browns made the playoffs since 1999. The Chargers, Bears and Eagles also reportedly want to interview Arians, who for most of 2012 served as Colts interim coach while Chuck Pagano was treated for leukemia. The Colts won nine games with Arians in charge.

While it's sad to see him leave, Arians will be remembered in Indy for a few years still as the guy who got it done in 2012. I just hope he ends up going to Philly or Chicago (because Cleveland's cursed and I can't stand San Diego).
