ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Arizona Cardinals would like to interview Falcons DC Mike Nolan regarding their own defensive coordinator vacancy.
There has been a lot of talk about former Steelers DC Dick LeBeau joining the team’s coaching staff now that they’ve lost Todd Bowles to the Jets. However, LeBeau is expected to take a role as a senior consultant, which leaves them still in need of a new defensive coordinator.
Mike Jurecki previously mentioned that that Cardinals DBs coach Nick Rapone was likely to get strong consideration for the job and OLB coach James Bettcher could be in play as well.
Nolan spent the past three seasons with the Falcons and has experience working with both 4-3 and 3-4 defensive schemes.
While his defenses in Atlanta may not have been as productive as in the past, he could be a decent candidate for the Cardinals to consider.
We’ll have more updates regarding the Cardinals defensive coordinator position as the news is available.
