The PFT article that says Arians may not be back links to a Bouchette article that suggests nothing of the sort. All kinds of other end of year miscellany, but not that. Then PFT links to its own article about Arians when it says Kirby Wilson might have been in line for the OC job
. But that's based on faulty speculation to begin with. And in the Wilson piece, Florio asks who else on staff could possibly replace Arians, when most casual fans know Randy Fichtner's been in the pipeline.
Still waaaaaaaaaaaay too speculative for me. Believe it when I see it.
