According to Marvez, the Cardinals are moving Freddie Kitchens to RBs coach, replacing Stump Mitchell, who left the team’s coaching staff.
Leftwich, 37, is a former first-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2003. He spent four years in Jacksonville before playing for a number of teams including the Falcons, Steelers and Buccaneers.
Last year, the Cardinals hired Leftwich as a coaching intern during training camp and tasked with helping their quarterbacks during the summer.
This will be his first full-time position as an NFL coach.
