The Play Calling Whisard

Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt will once again be calling the plays for the Cardinals in 2010.  Passing game coordinator Mike Miller and running game coordinator Russ Grimm will also contribute a considerable degree of input.

Whisenhunt called the plays in 2007, but Todd Haley took over the duties during the Cards’ 2008 Super Bowl season.  After Haley left to take the head job in Kansas City, Whisenhunt resumed play calling duties again in 2009.  According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, Whisenhunt plans to eventually hand the full-time play calling job over to Mike Miller, because “Whisenhunt views it as paying a debt.  Former Steelers coach Bill Cowher gave Whisenhunt a chance to call plays by naming him offensive coordinator, and it gave Whisenhunt a big boost in becoming a head coach.”  For now, however, Whisenhunt will be calling the shots.
