Mike Munchak is staying with the Steelers, but another one of the Cardinals head coaching candidates is reportedly set for a second interview with the team.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Falcons special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong will have a second interview for the job. Per the report, the interview will take place in Arizona on Friday.

Armstrong has been in his current job since 2008 and began working as an NFL assistant as a secondary coach with the Falcons in 1994.

Armstrong had his first interview after the Falcons beat the Rams in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. The Cardinals are the only team he has interviewed with this year.

The Cardinals are also reportedly planning a second interview with Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo.

  1. Armstrong seems like an able candidate. Not sure what the Cardinals are doing though. Seems like everyday there’s a new frontrunner for the job. First it was Pat Shurmur. Then Steve Wilks. Then Mike Munchak. Then Brian Flores. Munchak has now withdrawn. Are the others still in the running? Guess it’s good to be thorough as long as they find the right guy.

  2. Cardinals are evaluating the entire field. The reason for the frontrunner speculation is that the Cardinals run a tight ship, and won’t reveal who they are going with until they go with that guy.

    Munchak, who imadirtyskunk said he likes in another post, was once called vanilla by Jeff Fisher. Munchak’s idea of spicy is a white bread sandwich with mayo and american cheese.

    I’m happy the Cardinals aren’t hiring Munchak. He ruined the Titans for a good while, and his “excellent” Steelers offensive line just got destroyed again.

  3. Would it take Todd Haley to bring back Larry Fitzgerald? He has a working relationship with him from 2007-2009 when he was our NFC Title-winning offensive coordinator. I think these are the 2 remaining candidates, Armstrong and Haley. We do need Special-Teams badly! I hope this guy can incorporate all 3 phases of the game (O, D, ST)!
