Ken Whisenhunt has been fired by the Arizona Cardinals. General manager Rod Graves has also been shown the door. Whisenhunt is the most successful coach in Cardinals history but it didn’t stop ownership from firing him.
This coach and GM combo actually led the Cardinals to the Super Bowl. However, they lost that Super Bowl to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
What really killed Whisenhunt and Graves was the retirement of Kurt Warner. Ever since he retired, they have been unable to find a replacement at quarterback. They went through a number of them but they were almost all really, really bad.
That said, expect Whisenhunt to land on his feet. He’ll likely either be a head coach or an assistant coach next season.
