What happens to Arians after the season?

35 posts in this topic

I would be shocked if Arians doesn't get offers flooding in for head coaching positions with other teams after what he's done for Indy and Andrew Luck. I'm sure Arians loves Chuck Pagano and Indy, but does he love them enough to turn down a head coaching position?

Only way I see us keeping him is if he thinks he's too old to coach (age 60), we make him our new official HC (doubt it), or if we have him signed to some kind of long-term contract.

Your last option wouldn't come into play simply because even if he has a 5 year contract to be OC, it's terminated if a team hires him as HC.

It will be interesting to see how this part of it plays out.

he'd have to get a nice offer from the right team. there are certainly a lot of reasons for him to stay

Does anyone know if Arians has ever interviewed for a HC position before? He has been around a long time, associated with great players and teams, so to me there is something to be said about him not getting a HC job yet. I'm not suggesting anything odd or that he isn't deserving, I'm just saying that OCs and DCs who have accomplished far less, or at least have a shorter resume, have HC jobs (Pagano, for one). This is an interesting topic, great post. I would not have thought Arians would get an interview, let alone a HC job a few weeks ago. But now...

I'm not sure Pagano is coming back....

But..to answer your question...Considering who the QB is, why would he leave?

I won't worry about this now but why would he want to leave? I won't blame him if he does but why would he want to leave Chuck (assuming he comes back) and leave Luck who would be going into his second year and he could help groom him into the next big thing at QB?

He's not a young man either.

I can't see him NOT getting interviews after this season. Assuming the wheels don't come off over the next two months.

Hate to even think it, but your point is well taken. Arians HC chance may well be with the Colts.

Agree on both points.

1) I pray Pagano comes back healthy and better then ever. But, there is always the chance he doesn't. It's cancer here folks. And even if he recovers what if his family convinces him to retire? I guess this is a wait and see and keep your fingers crossed scenario that we worry about later. Just hope Pagano recovers first and foremost.

2) Yeah why would you want to leave Luck? You won't find a better young QB to help groom for the future and be a part of.

Arians would not make a good head coach, to many questionable and even bad decisions (mixed in with some good), throwing down field on 3rd and shorts a fair share of times, poor use of timeouts, whats made him look like a good head coach this far is Luck,, not trying to take the air out of his or anyones tires, he has this team competing for the division as well as a playoff spot but he is a QB'S coach and thats where he should be

Money. HC's make more than OC's.

I'm sure he'd like to stay with Pagano & Luck But financial secuirity for himself and family would be a huge factor.

If Arians wanted to be an HC, he would sure be a little jealous of the attention Pagano is getting and I don't see an ounce of that in him. OC's love great QBs (which he has) and tinkering with new plays. He seems to be doing a lot of that these days and loving it.

The man was just fired and sent into early retirement just last season. Now people are saying he is going to get some offers at a HC positions. I doubt it

If he does get an opportunity, this has worked out as well as it possibly could for him. The guy was run out of Pittsburgh as OC, and one year later, might have a head coaching opportunity.

Where and with what QB would he be a fit? That's the question.

I have to say I like his temperament and leadership as head coach. If I needed a coach, I would give him a look.

People aren't saying he's going to get offers to be hired. They're saying he'll get offered to be interviewed. Big, BIG difference.

Once he's interviewed, who knows how many (if any) offers he might get. But he should get some offers to be interviewed, I'd be stunned if he doesn't.

Good coaches get fired sometimes. It happens. Doesn't mean they'll never get another shot.

If I were running a team and was interviewing coaching candidates, I would place value on the experience Arians is getting right now. Whenever an assistant coach is in the running, you always wonder how they would exercise leadership over the whole team, how they would handle game management, whether they can motivate players, etc. Those questions are being answered right now in Arians case, and mostly to the positive.

What works against him is his age. The NFL has become a young man's league. Irsay placed a premium on finding young, energetic people to lead the team, and Pagano was the oldest guy interviewed, I believe. Retreads don't get a lot of love unless they've had good success in the past. Lots of early 40s coaches, and some younger. And there are a lot of young up-and-comers that will get attention this next offseason.

But I would have Arians on my short list of candidates, absolutely. I'm not that excited about his play calling, but he's improved in game management every week, he trusts his players, and they all speak very highly of him. I like him a heck of a lot more as a head coach than as a coordinator. Maybe I wouldn't hire him, but I'd feel like I didn't do my job if I didn't at least ask about him.

It's complicated, isn't it? That's exactly how I feel. But the perfect coach probably doesn't exist, so you add up everything in his favor and make a decision.

Do you guys think were 6-3 if we had someone else as interim.coach? People bash arians for being a really gutsy guy, but i love that about him, especially after a decade of conservatism

New Orleans had months to prepare for their coach not being around and look at them. The Colts had ONE day to prepare.

What Arians has done is impressive. He will get some run if he is open to it. The Colts have played really hard for him, and he is a proven commodity as a QB coach.

Don't be shocked if he leaves. But don't be shocked if Irsay slips him a nice BONUS check to stay either.

If he wants it and gets a shot good for him. He deserves the chance.

Come on, you certainly know what i mean! Dungy and he who shall not be named were known for being very conservative, like 4th and 1s, offensive and.defensive schemes, etc etc

Very conservative on D, yes I agree there..

I won't mind if I ever see another 10 cushion from a Colt CB again.

I believe he stays another one or two years. I just don't forsee him walking away just after one year. Because in all likelyhood, it'd be either Dallas, Philly or some team in the AFC South. Hes a perfect fit and him and Pags have a close friendship. Remember Pagano was the one who convinced him to come out of "retirement".

Too hard to say because we don't know for sure what jobs are going to be open and maybe more importantly who these teams GMs are going to be. A lot of GMs hire people they know so if someone who doesn't have a relationship with Arians gets a job it's less likely he would hire Arians. With that said if a team hires a guy like Tom Telesco to be their GM he might very well reach out to Arians. I wouldn't waste your time now though worrying about what might happen. I would spend it enjoying the magic run the Colts are on right now and what's going to happen in the off-season is going to happen and we'll deal with it then.

I hope he stays, but with so many coaches on the hot seat (and most of those coaches to be fired), I must think that a team offers him a HC job.

Too difficult to tell. I'm actually heading towards a 3rd interview for a new job. If successful, there will be more money, more staff, more work and more travel. I'm happy where I am just now, so why would I move jobs? The challenge. And even if offered, I might not take it.

If I don't even know what I'm going to do, how is Arians, at this stage in the season, going to know what he want's to do?

Stupid analogy probably, but hope you get my drift....

I think the real question that should be asked here is, if Arians does leave, how does everyone feel about Clyde calling the plays next season? Because that's Arians' most likely replacement if he does leave. Grigson and Pagano will be all about continuity and stability for Luck early in his career, so I doubt that we'll be bringing any big name coordinators, with a totally different schemes, in to replace Arians. Just my opinion

The guy is 5-1 since taking over the reigns of the team.

He will definitely get calls from teams wanting HCs like the Chiefs.

If Arians does leave, I wouldn't blame him even though I think that in a couple years we could very well be a deep playoff team if he stayed.

I would love to get a good offensive HC that will likely get fired like Chan Gailey or Norv Turner.

    • Actually, if I'm being totally honest here, I'd make NFL referees a permanent 12 month position with great benefits & a nice salary vs the temporary occupation it is now.    My reasoning is simple: If you compensate people well so that they can devote their entire time perfecting & improving their craft, they tend to excel at it & negate their mistakes over time.    Plus, with all the new rules/modifications that get tweaked every yr, it would be a wise move to validate to your referee crews that you value their attention to detail through their pocket book. When you pay people well, they strive to make their bosses look good. 
    • Pre-game & halftime interviews with both head coaches. Yeah I know, they are not an NFL rule per say unless you wanna count them as a CBA mandate to make themselves available to journalists during a game.    I just have never really gotten anything meaningful over these reporter/coach interactions. 90% of the remarks are tired cliches & even if you missed part of the game; nobody ever looks online to say hear what Erin Andrews asked a coach at halftime. 
    • I agree with taking away the taunting rule tool because it's just another version of smack talking live. If you wanna ban the throat slashing gesture, the pretend pistol firing gesture, or the archery firing motion fine; but everything else is fair game.   It's your job to shut your adversary up by scoring TDs or crippling their ground game on defense on 3rd down. And why is the league allowed to promote their shield & jerseys for profit but players can't engage in individual expressions of self promotion either? Seems highly hypocritical to me Mr. Commissioner. Just saying. 
    • I kind of agree with this reverting back I mean. This idea that both sides get an opportunity to touch the ball on offense is overrated to me. Yeah I know, the coin toss by a ref was given excessive weight to a random element of chance, but still. I liked it when the first score in OT even a FG could win the darn game. It was a rush man. The arbitrariness of it all in overtime so many things coaches had no control over: heads or tails on the toss, hearing what player captains declared on the field incorrectly before the toss itself; & life in general isn't fair anyway. Why should both teams get the ball in OT anyway? It gives almost voodoo magic mystique to how the coin lands.    Plus, a lot of players can get injured playing an extra quarter of football. They're tired, exhausted, & say a coach is on the hot seat by their owner & needs to make the playoffs to retain their job...And then wham the team looses their star WR or DB? Crap.    Not only that. Field Goals are crisp, clean, & the guys can get a shower faster & clean up sooner for post game interviews too.    Last but not least, one of the reasons I refuse to watch baseball is that the games take too long to finally conclude & the longer games play out the more it interferes with TV programming & sleeping habits of some fans too. Length isn't always an asset in broadcasting as producers or consumers overall. 
    •   That would be my pick too. I don't think any other team has underachieved as much in the past few years. They have questionmarks at LB, S, OL and HC, along with Rivers late game meltdowns but if Lynn proves out to be at least average coach, I think they are fairly serious threat. That's one stacked division they play in though and rough schedule.
