Former Steelers tight end Matt Spaeth will be a happy camper if Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians ends up with the Bears head coaching job.
Spaeth speaking to ESPN Chicago had high praise for Arians as a coach and the style of offense he would bring to the table. Spaeth who played for the Steelers from 2007-2010, also commented on Arians firing in Pittsburgh, indicating none of his former teammates in Pittsburgh were happy when Arians was forced out in Pittsburgh.
“I can tell you that when Pittsburgh got rid of him, nobody was happy in that locker room, especially Ben (Roethlisberger). Ben has a lot of pull around there and he was upset. People were mad because of the job Bruce does. Just look at this year in Indianapolis and the tough situation he was placed in going from coordinator to interim head coach. He did a great job. And he seemed like the right coach for Andrew Luck. If you read or watched Luck’s interviews this year, it was B.A. this, or B.A. that … players respect the guy and they play for him.”
