Two-time NFL Coach of the Year Bruce Arians said Cleveland is the only place that could bring him out of retirement, News 5's media partners at the Canton Repository reported Monday.

Arians, who was in Cleveland on Sunday as a TV analyst, was fired from the Browns in 2003, which led him to resurface in Pittsburgh and coordinate the offense for the Steelers' run to the Super Bowls capping the 2008 and 2010 seasons.

Reporters asked Arians if he would ever consider becoming a head coach again.

"Cleveland is the only job I would consider," he told a reporter at Canton Repository.

Arians said Cleveland needs a coach that would embrace the challenges Cleveland faces.

He said his guy would be Chuck Pagano, who was hired in Cleveland the same year as Arians in 2001.

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.

Arians retired in 2017, but as he mentioned, there is only one job he would consider coming out of retirement.
