When a General Manger gets to hire a coach, it generally means his future is tied to the new guy.
According to Dan Graziano of ESPN.com, the Cardinals have agreed to a contract extension through 2022 with G.M. Steve Keim.
With new coach Steve Wilks getting a four-year deal with an option for a fifth, it puts Keim on the same page as the guy who will control the on-field future of the team.
Keim was promoted to G.M. in Arizona in 2013 after 14 years with the Cardinals.
UPDATE 1:57 p.m. ET: The Cardinals announced the move moments after the initial report.
