TEMPE (AP) — Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians says a report that he and the franchise have agreed to part ways after this season is untrue, labeling it “fake news.”
An article in Pro Football Weekly cited “multiple sources” as saying the split would come next week at the end of Arians’ fifth season as the team’s head coach.
But Arians said on Tuesday that no decision on future seasons has been made. The 65-year-old coach said he’d never met the article’s author or knows where any supposed meetings on the subject took place.
Arians can become the winningest coach in Cardinals history with his 50th victory at Seattle in the season finale on Sunday.
Arians is 49-32-1 in five seasons with the Cardinals, including the postseason. They are 7-8 this season.
