When Bruce Arians was introduced as the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals January 18, he stated at his press conference that he’d like to have his new coaching staff in place by the end of that weekend.

It didn’t happen quite that fast, but Arians did fill out his coaching staff Tuesday afternoon.

We knew that Todd Bowles was the defensive coordinator, Harold Goodwin the offensive coordinator and Tom Moore was the assistant head coach and offensive assistant, but 13 new members of the staff were revealed.

Here’s what the rest of the staff looks like:

Amos Jones – Special teams coordinator

James Bettcher – Outside linebackers

Brentson Buckner – Defensive line

Mike Caldwell – Linebackers

Rick Christophel – Tight ends

Darryl Drake – Wide receivers

Kevin Garver – Offensive assistant

Steve Heiden – Assistant special teams/assistant tight ends

Stump Mitchell – Running backs

Tom Pratt – Pass rush specialist

Nick Rapone – Defensive backs

Kevin Ross – Cornerbacks

Larry Zierlein – Assistant offensive line

Freddie Kitchens, who was on Ken Whisenhunt’s staff as the tight ends coach, now shifts to quarterbacks and Ryan Slowik moves from outside linebackers coach to defensive assistant/assistant defensive backs.

Strength and conditioning coordinator John Lott and conditioning coach Pete Alosi were retained in those roles.

As Cardinals vice president of media relations Mark Dalton tweeted, this is a very experienced group of coaches assembled by Arians.
