TEMPE, Ariz. -- In between tears of "joy and peace," Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians cited his family as the reason he decided to retire from coaching after 42 years, including the past five in his first NFL head-coaching job.

"I will miss the game," Arians said Monday. "It's been a great ride."

Arians broke down the most after uttering the words, "I'm retiring."

Arians said he didn't make his final decision to retire until Phil Dawson's 42-yard field goal went through the uprights at CenturyLink Field in Seattle on Sunday night. He told his team after Arizona's 26-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks, and the players kept it a secret until he announced it late Monday morning.
