Cardinals narrow search for head coaches to three candidates

The Arizona Cardinals have reportedly narrowed their search for head coaches to three candidates.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the job for the Cardinals goes to Pittsburgh Steelers assistant Brian Flores, New York Giants offensive coordinator Mike Kafka and Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo.

According to Fowler, the Cardinals informed several coaches that they were out of contention, including Detroit Lions DC Aaron Glenn and Bengals OC Brian Callahan.

DC Cardinals Vance Joseph was among those who said they were no longer in consideration for the Arizona job. However, as Fowler mentioned, Joseph is still under contract and the team has yet to allow him to pursue other opportunities.

Flores, who is expected to have his second interview with the Cardinals on Wednesday, is also in the running for jobs in DC with the Denver Broncos and Minnesota Vikings, according to NFL Network. Ian Rapoport.

Meanwhile, according to Sports Illustrated Albert BreerKafka will meet the Cardinals again on Tuesday, while Anarumo will have his second interview with the team on Friday.

The Cardinals don’t seem close to naming a head coach, but whoever they choose will likely start their tenure at a decided disadvantage. After tearing his ACL in December, quarterback Kyler Murray could miss the first half of the 2023 NFL season.

Arizona finished a dreadful 4-13, sacking head coach Kliff Kingsbury at the end of the year. Kingsbury has led the Cardinals to the playoffs just once in four seasons, finishing 26-33-1.
