Before the news broke that Bruce Arians would be the Cardinals next head coach, LaRon Byrd’s phone buzzed. It was Indianapolis Colts receiver Reggie Wayne, a fellow former Miami Hurricane, giving Byrd a hard time for stealing his former offensive coordinator and interim head coach. “You’re going to love him,” Wayne texted Byrd. “He’s a great coach and he knows what he’s doing.” With the news official by time players arrived in the locker room for treatment Friday morning, the Cardinals were expressing their excitement about having Arians as their new coach through Twitter, the Internet and in person.
