One former NFL head coach has already taken himself out of the running for the Packers job

CBS Sports

If former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians decides to make a return to the sideline in 2019, it definitely won't be with the Green Bay Packers. 

During an interview with CBS Sports Radio's Zach Gelb this week, Arians gave a pretty clear answer when he was asked if he would have any interest in the Packers coaching job. 

"No, not at all," Arians said. "If I ever return to coaching, it will only be in Cleveland."

That's not the first time that Arians has mentioned the Browns job. During an interview with CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora in late November, Arians said the only way he'd potentially return to an NFL sideline was if the Browns offered him their coaching job. 

"I've always wanted that job," Arians told La Canfora. "And I got passed over for it a couple of times, and it would be the only job I would listen to and come out of retirement for."

Since retiring as the Cardinals coach following the 2017 season, Arians has been staying busy by serving as an NFL game analyst for CBS. Ironically enough, Arians was actually in the CBS booth for a game in Cleveland earlier this year when he decided he might have some interest in the Browns' opening.
