Bruce Charles Arians was born on 3 October 1952, in Paterson, New Jersey USA, and is an American Football coach, known for coaching the Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints, Indianapolis Colts, Cleveland Browns and the Arizona Cardinals in the National Football League (NFL).

So just how wealthy is Bruce Arians? Sources state that Arians has acquired a net worth of over $10 million, as of early 2017, accumulated during his coaching career, which began in the mid-1970s.

Arians grew up in York, Pennsylvania, where he attended York Catholic High School and William Penn High School. He enrolled at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburgh, Virginia, joining the school’s football team, the Hokies. During his senior year he became the starting quarterback in a wishbone offense, achieving impressive results and setting a school record for most rushing touchdowns in a season with 11. He finished his college career with 1,270 yards, six touchdowns and eight interceptions, rushing for 539 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Following his graduation from Virginia Tech in 1975, Arians pursued a coaching career, becoming a graduate assistant at Virginia Tech, and then wide receivers and running backs coach at Mississippi State University in 1978. In 1981 he became the running backs coach at the University of Alabama, then two years later he moved to Temple University, becoming the head coach, compiling a 27-39 overall record over his six seasons at the college. All contributed to his net worth.

In 1988 Arians became the running backs coach for the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL, but remained involved in collegiate football as well, serving as offensive coordinator at Mississippi State from 1993 to 1995, and at the University of Alabama in 1997. Meanwhile from 1996, he was the tight ends coach for the New Orleans Saints, before in 1998 being hired as the quarterbacks coach for the Indianapolis Colts, and then in 2001 the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns. From 2004 to 2007 he served as the wide receivers coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers, being promoted as the team’s offensive coordinator in 2007. His wealth grew larger.

In 2012 he returned to the Colts, now serving as their offensive coordinator. Later that year he became the team’s interim head coach, leading the Colts to a 9–3 record, which was part of one of the biggest one-season turnarounds ever and the most wins achieved by an interim head coach in the history of the NFL. He was subsequently named the AP Coach of the Year, becoming the first interim head coach to receive that honor. His achievement with the Colts greatly contributed to his reputation, and to his fortune as well.

Arians went on to become the head coach for the Arizona Cardinals in 2013, his first full time NFL head coaching position. During his first season with the team, he set a record of 10-6, becoming the first coach since 1925 to achieve at least nine wins in his first season. The following season saw the Cardinals setting a franchise record for most wins in a season with 11, with Arians named AP Head Coach of the Year again. His popularity and his net worth significantly increased, and in 2015 the team signed him to a four-year contract extension, further improving his wealth. He went on to set another franchise record for most wins in a season that year, now with 13, but the team somewhat surprisingly missed the play-offs in 2016.

However, being a head coach at the college level and coaching five NFL teams has enabled Arians to establish a notable reputation in the world of football, and to amass a sizable fortune.

Speaking about his personal life, Arians is married to Christine Arians, with whom he has a son and a daughter.
