As expected, Larry Fitzgerald waits for coach news

Larry Fitzgerald hasn't yet made a decision about playing this season or not. It was easy to figure that he couldn't make a choice without knowing who the coach would be, and Fitz confirmed that Friday during an NBC Golf interview.

"I don't have a head coach right now so there is a lot going on," Fitzgerald said. "I'm going to take some time, figure it out. Our owner and president, Michael Bidwill, and General Manager Steve Keim are out right now interviewing head coaches. I'm interested to see what is going to happen and I'll make a decision shortly after (they get a coach), I would imagine."

It seems that this time of year, Fitz often talks about his future on the golf course. It makes sense, since a) his future has been up in the air in January and b) Fitz's time in public in January is usually on the golf course. (And Fitz will be out doing things at the Phoenix Open in a couple of weeks too.) Again, there is a holding pattern that was going to be expected while the Cards sort out the coaching situation. Then Fitz can get an idea not only of personality but also how how he might be used in a new system.

UPDATE: Later in the day, Fitz had an interview with the NFL Network. His retirement has nothing to do with Bruce Arians and Carson Palmer, he stressed, and "I'll go as long as I feel I can play at a high level."
