Arians’ backup plan was teaching P.E. and drivers ed while coaching football

TEMPE, Ariz. — If Bruce Arians had it his way back in 1974, he would’ve been calling plays in a Washington, D.C., suburb, passing his offensive ingenuity onto a younger generation of football players.

But instead of sharing it with Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, his plan was to draw up go routes and double moves for a junior high team in Reston, Virginia. As a junior at Virginia Tech, Arians knew what he wanted to do with his life: teach junior high physical education and coach football, while trying his hand at high school drivers education.
