Cardinals promote Mike Miller to offensive coordinator
The Arizona Cardinals have announced that passing game coordinator Mike Miller has been promoted to offensive coordinator.
Miller was promoted from wide receivers coach to passing game coordinator in 2009 after offensive coordinator Todd Haley departed to become the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs. Miller has been credited with helping bring along the wide receivers in Arizona, including Steve Breaston.
He’s worked for the Cardinals for the past four seasons and has previous experience in Pittsburgh, where he worked with coach Ken Whisenhunt, and Buffalo. The promotion could come as a sign that Whisenhunt will again limit his role somewhat calling plays on offense.
Whisenhunt relinquished play calling duties to Haley midway through the 2007 season. The Cardinals reached the Super Bowl the next season. Most of the shakeup on the staff in Arizona this offseason, though, has focused on the defensive side of the ball. Ray Horton was hired as the defensive coordinator last week.
Whisenhunt is scheduled to discuss the moves later today. Check back for details.
