New Cardinals coach Arians hires coordinators, top assistant

The SportsXchange

Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians hired three top assistants for his new staff Monday.

Arians named Todd Bowles as his defensive coordinator, Harold Goodwin as offensive coordinator and Tom Moore as assistant head coach for offense.

Bowles took over as defensive coordinator in Philadelphia during the 2012 season when former coach Andy Reid promoted him from secondary coach. He replaces Ray Horton, who left Arizona to become the defensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns after Arians was hired as head coach on Thursday.

Goodwin served as offensive line coach last season for the Indianapolis Colts, where he worked with Arians. Goodwin spent the previous five seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers and three before that with the Chicago Bears.

Moore, a longtime NFL assistant, was the offensive coordinator in Indianapolis for quarterback Peyton Manning. The 74-year-old left the Colts after the 2010 season when he had double knee replacement surgery. But Moore has said he wanted to return to coaching and spent the final five games of the 2012 season as a consultant with the Tennessee Titans.
