Davis the Front Runner to take Over for Pendergast?

The Cards continue to look for replacements for the offensive and defensive coordinator spots, and Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Cards may have their favorite in place for the recently fired Clancy Pendergast:

We’re hearing that the clubhouse favorite for the job is linebackers coach Bill Davis.

Davis was hired by the team in 2007, after coach Ken Whisenhunt got the job. Davis previously coordinated the 49ers’ defense (2005-06). Before that, he worked as linebacker coach for the Giants (2004), linebackers coach for the Falcons (2001-03), defensive assistant/defensive line for the Packers (2000), defensive assistant/linebackers for the Browns (1999), outside linebackers coach for the Panthers (1995-98).

His first NFL job came in 1992, as a defensive assistant on Bill Cowher’s initial staff with the Steelers. Davis worked in Pittsburgh through 1994.

The 43-year-old coach also spent two years coaching at Michigan State. He played quarterback and receiver at the University of Cincinnati from 1985 through 1988, and he spent some time in training camp with the Dolphins, as a receiver.

    Rumor is that Wisenhunt wants the linebackers coach for the Steelers. He wanted him two years ago but the Steelers turned his interview request down.
