Cardinals Coach Arians released from hospitalPosted: Updated:
Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians has been released from the hospital after suffering chest pains, according to team spokesman Mark Dalton.
He is back at home, Dalton said Monday evening.
Dalton issued this statement Monday morning:
"After returning home from Minnesota, Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians was experiencing discomfort and not feeling well during the night. His wife took him to a local hospital to be evaluated. All tests conducted so far have come back favorably. He remains in the hospital for continued evaluation. Further updates will be provided as they are available."
On Aug. 16, a bout with diverticulitis sent him to the hospital in San Diego.
Arians, 63, was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2009. It was discovered during a postseason physical. He underwent treatment and beat it.
Born in Paterson, NJ, Arians played football at Virgina Tech in the '70s. That's where he began his coaching career as a graduate assistant in 1975.
His first NFL job was with the Kansas City Chief. He was the running backs coach from 1989 until 1992.
He went back and forth between pro and college teams -- Mississippi State, New Orleans Saints and Alabama -- until he landed with the Indianapolis Colts in 1998. From there he went to the Cleveland Browns and then the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Before taking over as head coach for the Arizona Cardinals in 2013, he was the offensive coordinator and interim head coach for the Indianapolis Colts, his second stint with the team.
Thank you for all the well wishes, thoughts and prayers. I'm doing good. Everything checked out ok. Happy to be back with the guys!— Bruce Arians (@BruceArians) November 22, 2016
