Cardinals' coaching staff stays stable
The team prevented John McNulty from taking the offensive coordinator's position at Tampa Bay. McNulty is moving from receivers coach to quarterbacks coach.
And assistant head coach/offensive line Russ Grimm talked to the Jaguars about their offensive line job. Grimm, who was not under contract at the time, used to work with Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey in Pittsburgh.
Mularkey said Grimm reached out to him, but Grimm said it was the Jaguars who called the Cardinals, asking for permission.
"They called and asked for permission," Grimm said. "But my contract was up. I told them I was staying in Arizona. We have some unfinished business here."
--Commissioner Roger Goodell named Whisenhunt to the league's Competition Committee, which makes recommendations on the game's rules and procedures. Whisenhunt joins two other coaches, the Bengals' Marvin Lewis and the Rams' Jeff Fisher, on the nine-member committee.
"You never know when you get a call from the commissioner what to expect," Whisenhunt said. "Obviously, I was very excited.
"One of the great things about the NFL and the ownership of the NFL is they're always looking to get better and keep our game as interesting to the fans as possible. History shows they've done a great job of that."
--Quarterback Kevin Kolb missed three complete games and most of a fourth because of a concussion. He said symptoms from the injury, suffered Dec. 11 against the 49ers, lingered for about a month after the season. That's a total of at least seven weeks. But Kolb said he is not worried about suffering another concussion.
"If it happens, it happens. I'll deal with it," he said.
--Kolb also isn't worrying about reports the team will be interested in Peyton Manning should the Colts release him. The Cardinals are due to pay Kolb a $7 million roster bonus by March 17. "Every indication on my end shows me that I'll be there," Kolb said.
