Cardinals appoint Arians

Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians has been appointed as head coach of the Arizona Cardinals.

Arians stepped in as the Colts' interim head coach for 12 games when Chuck Pagano underwent treatment for leukemia, guiding them to the playoffs this season.

The 60-year-old has reportedly signed a four-year deal, replacing Ken Wisenhunt who was sacked following the Cardinals bottom place finish in the NFC West Division.
