Arians would interview, but only for Browns job

Updated: 26-11-2018 01:04 IST

For the second time this month, former NFL Bruce Arians says he'd consider coming out of retirement to coach the Cleveland Browns.

"I would listen to the Browns, and only them," Arians said in an interview with

Arians got his start as an NFL coordinator in Cleveland and says the fans are the biggest draw.

"I've always loved Cleveland," said Arians. "The fans, shoot, one of the best groups in the league and when I called their game this past year, I got that feeling about them."

The Browns fired head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley in October. Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams is serving as interim head coach.

Arians, 66, was in Cleveland in early November, working in the CBS booth for the Browns' game against the Kansas City Chiefs. During a break in the game, he talked with The Canton Repository and the topic of a potential return to the NFL came up.

"Cleveland is the only job I would consider," he said, according to The Repository's Steve Doerschuk.

Arians was the offensive coordinator with the Browns from 2001-03. He was fired after three seasons and took the same position with the Steelers. His success in Pittsburgh, and Indianapolis after that, led to him getting a head-coaching job in Arizona before the 2013 season.

In five seasons with the Cardinals, Arians was 49-30-1 and led his team to the playoffs twice, going 1-2 in the postseason.
