Bruce Arians has revealed that he was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma, the most common type of kidney cancer, during the 2016 season.

Arians writes in his new book that he received the diagnosis in December and decided to coach the rest of the season.

The Arizona Cardinals coach had surgery to remove the cancer in February and will be healthy enough to coach the team in 2017.

This is the third cancer diagnosis for Arians, who has previously had prostate cancer in 2007 and had cancerous cells scraped off his nose in 2013.
