Coaches throughout history have always attended the meetings that made them successful. But Bruce Arians made his name the offensive coordinator for both the Colts and the Browns before becoming head coach of the Cardinals will not attend meetings discussing the offense.
Speaking with Joe Bucs Fan, Bruce told Colin Cowherd that he prefers a hands-off style of leadership. Bruce was quoted saying, “I get way too much credit for the [offense]. I don’t even go to the meetings. I mean [offensive coordinator] Byron [Leftwich] runs this offense from top to bottom and doesn’t get enough credit for it.”
This doesn’t mean Bruce doesn’t get briefed on the game plan before the game. He, in fact, will sit down with Byron Leftwich Monday evening (for a Sunday game), and on Tuesday, he’ll throw a few ideas around to make the plan for game day.
Bruce won’t sit around and scrutinize the ideas or plays of the other teams either. They are a week-to-week style of planning as a comprehensive and adaptive offense. Instead, Bruce trust Byron to build on his success so far and continue the great work.
