NFL Analyst: ‘Whisenhunt’s going to get another shot’
When the Arizona Cardinals fired Ken Whisenhunt on Monday, many pundits around the league believed he would get a second chance as an NFL head coach.
Less than a week since his firing, Whisenhunt has already completed interviews with the Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns. With the Browns close to hiring Oregon innovator and one of the hottest head coaching candidates on the market, Chip Kelly, many wonder if Whisenhunt will indeed wind up taking the reins in Buffalo.
CBS Sports NFL Analyst Steve Tasker told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug & Wolf Friday he hasn’t been privy to the talks between Whisenhunt and the Bills, but he wouldn’t be surprised if the former Cardinals head coach landed with the Bills.
“Don’t be surprised when Ken Whisenhunt gets another head coaching job and it may well be in Buffalo,” Tasker said. “I am sure that he’s on their short list and we’ll see how it comes out. I don’t have any special insight into how that interview process went with Whisenhunt.”
Tasker said he understands Cardinals fans might be unable to fathom how Whisenhunt could potentially get another head coach gig so quickly, but he believes with the right personnel the 50-year-old could be quite successful in a new environment.
