With Todd Bowles taking the New York Jets’ head coaching position, Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians will be restocking his staff.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, one of the greatest defensive coordinators in league history will meet with the Cardinals about a position.
Cardinals scheduled to meet next week with former Steelers DC Dick LeBeau about senior coaching position on their staff, per source.

LeBeau, 77, has been an NFL coach since 1973, most recently an 11-year stint as the defensive coordinator with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He resigned his position earlier this month.
AZCentral Sports’ Kent Somers reported Wednesday that the Cardinals plan on promoting a defensive coordinator from within while bringing LeBeau on as a senior assistant.
However, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area tweeted Thursday that former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio could receive a call from the Cardinals’ offices as well.
Source close to Vic Fangio, former 49ers defensive coordinator, expects him to be contacted by every team that has an opening.
