"Bruce Arians has informed me that he will retire from coaching," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said in a statement. "I appreciate his efforts over the past five years as the team's offensive coordinator and for helping lead our offense to new heights during his time with the Steelers. I am grateful to Bruce for contributing to our success and wish him nothing but the best in his retirement."
Arians, 59, was the Steelers' offensive coordinator for the last five seasons.
Now, the Steelers will launch a search for a replacement.
According to reports out of Pittsburgh, running backs coach Kirby Wilson was a top candidate for the position.
However, Wilson is in critical condition after suffering burns to over 45 percent of his body during a house fire.
It's unclear what direction the Steelers will go in to replace Arians, who worked effectively with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
