Whisenhunt takes over in Arizona

The Cardinals have tabbed Ken Whisenhunt as their new head coach, according to FOX NFL SUNDAY and FOXSports.com. The former Steelers offensive coordinator has spent the last two days trying to nail down a deal and after working all night they finally got a deal done. Whisenhunt was already on the phone Sunday morning with a handful of assistant coaching options, although he’s likely to keep much if not all of the Cardinals defensive staff. Whisenhunt also interviewed for the Dolphins and Steelers openings but it soon became clear that the Steelers were not jumping at a replacement for Bill Cowher.

Former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike Sherman is expected to interview for the Steelers coaching vacancy this week. Sherman wanted 4 million per to be Arizonas head coach and they balked at his demands
