Are the Arizona Cardinals getting closer to losing defensive coordinator Todd Bowles?
— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 7, 2014
Bowles has spent just one season with the Cardinals, as he was hired to run the defense by Bruce Arians. He had the unenviable task of replacing the popular Ray Horton, but led Arizona’s defense to a number one ranking against the run and number six ranking overall.
After the season, Arians said he expected Bowles to get interviews, “and rightfully so.”
Of course, while everyone would like to see Bowles back in Arizona, no one would hold it against him if he left for the top job with another team.
“He’s going to be out there, but hopefully he’ll be able to stay here,” safety Yeremiah Bell said the day after the season ended. “There’s opportunities, and guys have got to do what they’ve got to do.”
