INDIANAPOLIS – A report out on Monday night indicates that Bruce Arians may be a little closer to a head coaching offer.
The Chicago Sun Times reports that the Colts’ offensive coordinator is a finalist for the head coaching position with the Chicago Bears. Football writer Sean Jensen reported the news on Twitter after 9 P.M. on Monday evening.
Arians interviewed with the Bears on Sunday and is also considered a candidate for the Chargers and Eagles’ head coaching positions.
A longtime NFL assistant, Arians has received a number of looks for head coaching jobs after leading the Colts to a 9-3 record in the interim as Chuck Pagano received treatments for Leukemia. Arians has been in Indianapolis for just one season, having been hired by Pagano after being let go by the Steelers.
