There’s buzz that Eagles QBs coach John DeFilippo, former Broncos OC Mike McCoy and former Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell are names to watch for the Cardinals’ offensive coordinator job under new head coach Steve Wilks (NFLTR), so things could move quickly in terms of their coaching staff coming together.

Holcomb began his coaching career at Temple back in 1995 as a graduate assistant/LBs coach. He worked for a number of schools including Colby College, Bloomsburg, Kutztown and Lafayette before getting hired by the Giants as their defensive quality control coach in 2011.

The Panthers hired Holcomb as their linebackers coach in 2013.
