Cardinals seek interview with Lions DC Aaron Glenn

The Arizona Cardinals have added another possible candidate to be their next head coach, replacing Kliff Kingsbury. It is another defensive coach, too.

According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Cardinals have requested an interview with Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn for their head-coaching vacancy.

Glenn has been the Lions’ DC for two seasons.

The Lions did not have a great statistical season defensively. They finished 28th in scoring defense, allowing 25.1 point per game, and they were last in total defense, allowing 392.4 yards per game. However, they did make strides over the final half of the season.

They allowed 19.5 points per game and 351.2 yards per game over their final six contests, holding opponents under 300 yards three times.

Before his stint with the Lions, Glenn coached defensive backs for the Cleveland Browns and New Orleans Saints from 2014-2020.
