The Arizona Cardinals are the lone team in the NFL without a head coach, but it appears that will all be changing soon. Per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Arizona Cardinals have offered Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians their head coaching position and he is expected to accept the offer.

Arians met with the Cardinals today and left the meeting with the team with a good feeling. He was then offered the position.

An official announcement on the Cardinals decision to name Arians their next head coach could come any minute or could be a few hours from now, but the move seems imminent.

UPDATE: ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Arians has agreed to a four-year deal to become the Cardinals new head coach. The deal includes a team option for a fifth-year. This news could signal the end of Ray Horton’s time on the Cardinals staff.
