The Arizona Cardinals have given Jason Licht Steve Keim’s old job.
Keim, who was promoted to general manager a couple weeks ago, was formerly the vice president of player personnel. That job now belongs to Licht.
“Jason has been a valuable member of our organization with an outstanding and well-earned reputation throughout the league,” Keim said in a press release. “In this new role he will take on an increased role in both college and pro personnel evaluation and also with contract negotiations.”
Licht re-joined the Cardinals last summer as director of player personnel after serving as the director of pro personnel for the New England Patriots from 2009-2011. Prior to that he was Arizona’s personnel executive.
