TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - After nearly 38 years in the business, at age 60, Bruce Arians finally is an NFL head coach.
And he's made it clear in a hurry that he's ready to run with it.
Arians was introduced as head coach of the Arizona Cardinals on Friday, promising to build a team that's ``disciplined, fast and physical - accountable, no excuses.''
The man who went 9-3 as interim coach in Indianapolis after Chuck Pagano left to be treated for leukemia choked up when he talked about his family, saying of his wife ``this is our 15th move.''
And Arians moved quickly, saying he wants a staff assembled by Sunday. He parted ways with popular Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton, who in a matter of hours was named to the same position in Cleveland.
