"No risk it, no biscuit." - Bruce Arians
Bruce Arians, Head Coach for the Arizona Cardinals, two-time NFL Coach of the Year, three time cancer survivor, and author of "The Quarterback Whisperer" joins THE BRINK OF MIDNIGHT PODCAST.
One of the most well-liked and respected people in the NFL, Bruce Arians was part of the coaching staff at Virginia Tech, Mississippi State, and Alabama. Bruce made his first big head coaching impact at the young age of 30 at Temple University. Coach Arians' NFL career includes working with the Indianapolis Colts, Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns, Kansas City Chiefs, and currently with the Arizona Cardinals. He has worked with some of the best players in league history, including Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Andrew Luck, Carson Palmer, and many others. Coach has some great nuggets for you to take into your day and week, but what’s most striking is how Bruce is a powerful example of handling uncertainty and life’s ups and downs while cultivating community and maintaining a strong sense of purpose. We’re lucky to have Coach Arians with us today and are excited to pull you into his huddle.
Whether you've had to start two new chapters or ten new chapters, Coach Arians wants you to go for it in whatever is calling you. As he always says: "No risk it, no biscuit."
BRUCE'S WORDS OF WISDOM
"Respect is the main thing."
"You can't lay up your whole life. You have to go for it."
"You can fold your tent and quit, or you can fight."
"As long as you don't lie to the man in the glass, you'll be fine." (In reference to the Man in the Glass poem)
"I’m not coaching for myself in 2017; I’m coaching for everyone who’s dealing with cancer."
"No risk it, no biscuit."
