The junior partner in the group charged with resuscitating the moribund Arizona Cardinals offense is offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin.
Head coach Bruce Arians and Goodwin talked about their challenge at a news conference at team headquarters Wednesday.
Arians, voted NFL coach of the year for his work as interim coach of the Indianapolis Colts last season, promised Goodwin will bring a high level of intensity to the job.
With Arians also bringing in a longtime NFL assistant coach, the highly respected Tom Moore, as assistant head coach-offense, Goodwin will handle the day-to-day coordinator chores, with an emphasis on his specialty, the offensive line.
The 39-year-old Goodwin has worked for Arians for six seasons, five with the Pittsburgh Steelers and last year as offensive line coach of the Colts.
