Bears bypass Colts assistant

January 16, 2013

The odds of offensive coordinator Bruce Arians remaining with the Indianapolis Colts rose Tuesday after the Chicago Bears decided to hire Marc Trestman as head coach. Arians, who led the Colts to a 9-3 record while filling in for Coach Chuck Pagano as Pagano received leukemia treatment, was one of three finalists for the Bears job. The Arizona Cardinals, however, also plan to talk to Arians about their vacant head coaching position.
