Bruce Arians was a great football coach, but we probably shouldn’t have taken him seriously as an NFL insider.

Arians, who retired from coaching at the end of the regular season, sent shockwaves around the football world during an appearance on FOX Sports 1’s “The Herd” on Tuesday. The former Arizona Cardinals coach claimed that Nick Saban, fresh off his fifth national championship in nine seasons at Alabama, “coveted” the New York Giants’ head coaching job.

Well, it turns out Arians was just pulling the wool over our eyes. In an Instagram photo shared Wednesday, FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer shut down Arians’ report, which might have been fueled by one too many libations.

While Saban almost certainly isn’t headed to the Giants, the same can’t be said for Matt Patricia, as “all signs” reportedly point to the New England Patriots defensive coordinator taking on his first head coaching job in New York.
