It has been a tumultuous week for Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians. Aside from a couple of stops in the hospital for what is being called an inner-ear infection, Arians is also one of the hottest names on the coaching circuit.
Arians joined the Scott and BR show in San Diego on Wednesday and expressed his interest in the open Chargers job -- especially now that there's an Indianapolis connection. San Diego named Tom Telesco, former Colts vice president of football operations, as its general manager.
“I would be now that Tommy's there," Arians said of his interest in coaching the Chargers. "I think so much of [the] success that teams have are great relationships between general manager and head coach. And it's not who has control of the roster, it's how do we get the best players?
"I had the opportunity to work for 12 weeks as a head coach this year with Ryan Grigson and Tommy Telesco, and it was a fantastic relationship. And I wouldn't want to work in any other situation as a head coach, unless it's that type of relationship where nobody's got a power player [and] we're all in this together trying to win."

Arians reitirated that he was content with his job in Indianapolis, although there are several opportunities. Arians said he would interview with the Chicago Bears on Sunday, but he has no other interviews.
"Three other teams have put in paperwork but we have nothing scheduled so far,” Arians said.
Although he wasn't specific with regards to the three other teams, several reports indicate that the Browns and Eagles are interested, as well as the Chargers. But Arians is quick to point out he's not looking to take just any job, although he does admit the situation in San Diego is alluring.
"I have a great job in Indianapolis," he said. "It's going to have to be a perfect fit for me to leave what we have done here, and not just to jump out to be a head coach.
"It's going to have to be a perfect fit, and obviously my relationship with Tommy makes it a lot easier.”
