Arians didn't leave he was forced into retirement. Have you ever heard of an offensive coordinator being forced into retirement before? I haven't. Normally they are just fired.
What is your reason for Arians being forced into retirement and how much influence did Arians being Roethlisberger's best friend in the organization play?
Is it possible the Steelers front office anticipated Roethlisberger's anger at Arians departure and were trying to do damage control?
No that's a conspiracy theory. The Steelers forced Arians into retiring so they wouldn't hurt his feelings.
