Steelers | Bruce Arians update

Updating previous items, former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians announced his retirement Friday, Jan. 20, although team sources said the Steelers chose not to retain Arians, against the wishes of QB Ben Roethlisberger. The sources said the move was made in order to shift the offense back toward its blue-collar identity of years past, in line with the desires of team president Art Rooney II. During his time as coordinator, Arians turned the Steelers from a run-first team to a pass-heavy one to better suit Roethlisberger. Pittsburgh ranked in the top half of the NFL in offense over the past three seasons but finished a disappointing 12th this past season.
