ESPN’s Clayton: Harold Goodwin in line to be future head coach
Harold Goodwin is the Cardinals’ offensive coordinator, though it is Bruce Arians who calls the team’s plays.
Goodwin has much input in the game plan, however, and also spends a lot of time working with the team’s offensive line.
Last season, he interviewed for the vacant Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ head coaching job that eventually went to Dirk Koetter, so the idea that he could be a candidate for a top job in the future isn’t all that far fetched.
In fact, ESPN NFL reporter John Clayton, in an Insider piece, listed the 43-year-old Goodwin in a group of assistant coaches to keep an eye on.
Goodwin, now in his fourth season in Arizona, has learned a lot from Bruce Arians. Goodwin is capable of building an offense for a team in need.
Though he is in his fourth season with the Cardinals, this is Goodwin’s 10th consecutive year working under Arizona head coach Bruce Arians. He was the offensive line coach for the Indianapolis Colts in 2012, and was an offensive assistant with the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2007-11.
