Bruce Arians named NFL Coach of the Year in slam-dunk vote (Shutdown Corner)
NEW ORLEANS -- The Arizona Cardinals may not have a lot going for them these days, but at least they know that they have a Coach of the Year in their midst. Former Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator and interim head coach Brice Arians, who accepted the Carinals' offer to replace Ken Whisenhunt on January 17, was named the NFL's Coach of the Year on Saturday by an overwhelming margin. Arians, the only interim coach ever to win the award, grabbed 36.5 out of a possible 50 votes. Chuck Pagano, the man Arians replaced when Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia in September, took second place with 5.5 votes. Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks finished third with five votes, and Leslie Frazier of the Minnesota Vikings finished fourth with three votes. As far ahead as Arians was in this vote, he probably should have swept the thing.
