Whis is gone. ESPN is reporting that the Arizona Cardinals have hired Ken Whisenhunt to be their new head coach. Whisenhunt, who's been Pittsburgh's offensive coordinator since 2004, signed a five year deal to take over in Phoenix.
Tough to see Whis go, but we probably shouldn't be surprised. After all, the Rooneys went outside the ranks to hire Bill Cowher when Chuck Knoll retired. Unless the Rooneys hand things over to Russ Grimm, in all likelihood the Rooneys will be bringing in some new blood again.
