The Cardinals are looking for another assistant coach now that Teryl Austin has accepted a job at the University of Florida, a development first reported by Mike Jurecki that I have since confirmed. The Cardinals could stay in-house by promoting assistant defensive backs coach Rick Courtright or coach Ken Whisenhunt could look elsewhere. I would guess Whisenhunt would like someone in place by the end of the month when the coaching staff heads to the scouting combine. That begins Feb. 24.
UPDATE: Florida is telling reporters nothing is official yet. Rivals.com’s Tom Deinhart is saying Florida is in the middle of interviewing a different person for the job today.
UPDATE II: Florida has made it official.
