Arians' 'retirement' lasts all of eight days
ESPN reported Saturday that Bruce Arians, whose contract as Steelers offensive coordinator wasn't renewed after the team decided to go in a different direction, was hired for the same position by the Indianapolis Colts.
Arians, 59, is expected to travel to Indianapolis on Monday and review the details of his contract.
Days after it was reported Arians retired from his job with the Steelers, he admitted his contract had expired and the team decided not to renew it -- a move that went against the wishes of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Steelers owner Art Rooney II said he would like the team to reestablish its run-first identity with a new coordinator.
Bears hire GM
The Chicago Bears hired Kansas City Chiefs director of college scouting Phil Emery as their new general manager.
Emery was an area scout for the Bears from 1998-2004 and replaces Jerry Angelo, who was fired after an injury-riddled 8-8 season.
49ers LB arrested
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith was charged with driving under the influence in Miami Beach.
Miami-Dade County jail records show Smith was booked yesterday morning and held on $1,000 bond. Jail records did not show whether Smith was represented by an attorney.
Smith was drafted as the seventh overall draft pick in 2011. During his first season he had 14 sacks, a franchise record for a rookie linebacker. He also ranked 1st in the NFL in sacks among rookies.
