Cardinals sign Bruce Arians, Steve Keim to contract extensions

Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians and general manager Steve Keim were given contract extensions through the 2018 season. Arians had a team option for 2017. Raises were anticipated. “Two years ago we hired Steve and Bruce a few days apart and believed we had something really special,” Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill said in a statement. “Every day since then they have validated that belief. The team’s performance over the last two seasons certainly reflects how talented they are in their respective roles and it was important that we reward them for their accomplishments. I speak not only for myself but all Cardinals fans when I say how thrilled we all are that Steve and Bruce are now under contract though 2018.” Keim recently signed Lary Fitzgerald to a two-year contract “I’m living out my dream,” Keim said. “Here I am, the son of a machinist, running a football team in the NFL. I’m humbled by it and appreciative of the opportunity. What makes it special is seeing where this organization started and what it has become.” Arians has won 21 games in two seasons and was named Associated Press NFL Coach of the Year.
