As the Arizona Cardinals two-year defensive coordinator Todd Bowles readies to become the next head coach of the New York Jets, many players have reacted to his departure and most have wished him well.
Head coach Bruce Arians also weighed in Wednesday:
“I couldn’t be happier for Todd. The Jets got themselves a tremendous coach and a better person. We’re sorry as hell to lose him but we all knew this day was coming, especially with the job he did here the last two years. Todd and I go back more than 30 years. He was once of my captains at Temple and it was obvious then how special he was. His passion for the game and intelligence are as high as anyone I’ve ever been around. Todd’s been ready for this for a long time and I’m ecstatic for him to finally get the opportunity.”
Powerful words, Coach — and they seem to echo the sentiments of Cardinals fans everywhere.
