Bruce Arians is seriously considering coming out of retirement to coach the Cleveland Browns, according to a report from NFL.com.
In an interview with the website, Arians said that not only is he serious about shedding the microphone after just one year, but his wife is on board with him returning.
Earlier this month, Arians told News 5's media partners at the Canton Repository that Cleveland is the only job he would consider.
At the time, though, he told those close to him that he did it as a way of pushing former Colts coach Chuck Pagano as a candidate. He doubled down on his thoughts and made clear this was for real, NFL.com reported.
Arians said the Browns need a new coach that would embrace the challenges Cleveland faces.
When the Browns had an opening in 2013, Arians wanted in, but the team went with Rob Chudzinski, which led Arians to take a full-time head coaching gig with the Cardinals.
He retired in 2017, but as he mentioned, there is only one job he would consider coming out of retirement.
