It has been reported since yesterday that Mike Tomlin fired offensive coordinator Bruce Arians.

It supposedly happened after his weekly news conference...sometime after 2p.m. on the 5th of January. It had not been confirmed and remained unofficial.

I even read an article on this very site... and my hopes were high.

As unfortunate as it is to say, new reports state that it is not the case.

Pittsburgh Post Gazette writer Gerry Dulac has reported that Bruce Arians will be retained as the team's offensive coordinator.

Arians, who has a year remaining on his contract, had a long meeting today with Coach Mike Tomlin and was told he will return in that position in 2010.
