Ken Whisenhunt's six-year tenure as Arizona Cardinals head coach is over.
Whisenhunt, the only coach to take the team to the Super Bowl, was relieved of his duties on Monday, along with six of his assistant coaches staff and general manager Rod Graves.
Whisenhunt had a 45-51 regular-season record with the Cardinals, including a 5-11 mark this season. He led the team to back-to-back NFC West titles in 2008 and 2009 and took them to the Super Bowl following the 2008 season, where they were beaten by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
But the shakeup came after three consecutive non-winning, non-playoff seasons. The Cardinals started 4-0 this season, but followed that with nine consecutive losses, capped by a 58-0 debacle in Seattle that was the worst defeat in franchise history.
The coaches who were let go are Russ Grimm (assistant head coachoffensive line), Mike Miller (offensive coordinator), Chad Grimm (offensive quality control), John McNulty (quarterbacks), Frank Reich (wide receivers)...
