In many ways, 2012 was a magical year for Bruce Arians, and 2013 is looking bright for him, too.
The Cardinals hired Arians as their head coach on Thursday, the same day they conducted their only interview with the coaching veteran of 37 years. He will be introduced at a 1 p.m. news conference Friday.
Arians is expected to sign a four-year contract with a team option for a fifth year.
It’s a dream fulfilled for Arians, 60, but there has been a lot of that lately for him.
