Cardinals go in-house for offensive coordinator
Posted Feb. 16 at 03:16 AM
When is continuity a bad thing? It might be the case in Arizona, where the Cardinals have promoted "passing game coordinator" Mike Miller to offensive coordinator.
Miller was the team's wide receivers coach in 2008, and he certainly had plenty of talent to work with in that role. He was promoted to passing game coordinator when Todd Haley left after that season, and only became involved in the playcalling duties last season. Arizona had the league's 29th-ranked passing offense last year, and although Miller isn't to blame for the quarterbacks the Cardinals had to work with, it's debatable whether he got a reasonable amount out of that passing game, either.
The team website has the story right here. It's easy to criticize, and Miller deserves a shot with a quarterback better than the Derek Anderson and two rookies trio he dealt with last year. Things certainly can't be worse for Larry Fitzgerald and company.
But it's not a hire to get excited about, either.
