PHOENIX (AP) — Former Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph has been hired as the defensive coordinator on new Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury’s staff.General manager Steve Keim had said he wanted a veteran defensive coordinator to pair with Kingsbury Todd Davis Jersey , who has no NFL coaching experience and will focus on offense.Joseph was fired on Dec. 31 after two seasons as coach of the Broncos. He has 14 years of coaching experience in the NFL, 12 on the defensive side of the ball.In addition, the Cardinals announced the hiring of Bill Davis, who has considerable experience as a defensive coordinator, as linebackers coach and said Jeff Rodgers will return as special teams coordinator.Joseph has just one season’s experience as a defensive coordinator, in 2016 with Miami. His Dolphins ranked 29th in total defense (out of 32 teams) and 18th in points allowed.Still, he was pursued by more than one NFL team looking for a defensive coordinator following his dismissal by Denver.Joseph, 49, ran a 3-4 defense, the scheme that Keim said he wanted to return to because it best fit the Cardinals’ personnel. Arizona ran a 3-4 defense for Bruce Arians’ five seasons as head coach but switched to a 4-3 last year for Steve Wilks’ one season with the Cardinals.Joseph was fired after going 11-21 in two seasons as head coach in Denver.The Broncos had the No. 3 defense in the NFL in 2017 but slipped to 22nd last year.Joseph coached defensive backs for San Francisco (2006-10), Houston (2011-13) and Cincinnati (2014-15) before his one season in Miami, where he helped the Dolphins make the postseason and positioned himself for the Broncos head coaching job.Davis returns to Arizona Shane Ray Jersey , where he was defensive coordinator under Ken Whisenhunt in 2009-10 and linebackers coach in 2007-08. He was part of the Arizona staff during the Cardinals’ surprise run to the Super Bowl following the 2008 season.He spent the last two seasons as linebackers coach for Ohio State after serving as defensive coordinator of the Philadelphia Eagles for three seasons (2013-15). Davis also has NFL assistant coaching experience with Carolina, Cleveland, Green Bay, Atlanta, the New York Giants and San Francisco, where he was the 49ers‘ defensive coordinator in 2005-06 before coming to Arizona.Rodgers, an 18-year coaching veteran, came to Arizona with Wilks. Under his tutelage, punter Andy Lee was among the league’s best and undrafted rookie Zeke Turner led the NFL with 13 ½ solo special teams tackles. The Cardinals also recovered a blocked punt for a touchdown in their season finale against Seattle.Joseph was out of town but could meet with the media when he returns next week. With the announcement that Vic Fangio will become the next head coach of the Broncos, more dominoes have begun to fall in regards to the rest of the coaching staff.It has been long hinted at by John Elway and others in the media that Gary Kubiak will not only have a role with the team this year, but a significant role in running the offense. Mike Klis reiterated this yesterday in his radio interview that Fangio being hired essentially allows him to focus on the defense, and Kubiak to run the offense.Now that has become official and confirmed Justin Hollins Denver Broncos Jersey , post-Fangio hiring, by Adam Schefter.It still remains to be seen how involved Kubiak will be and if he’ll carry the title of offensive coordinator or he’ll cede play calling duties to someone else while he manages the overall direction of the offense.[Update] Currently, according to Mike Klis, it sounds like the team would prefer to have a younger coach carry the title of offensive coordinator and be groomed by Gary Kubiak as the offensive mastermind. This makes sense not only for Gary Kubiak’s health but also for Denver to be able to bring up another young offensive mind without fully handing over the reins to the offense to him, bringing him along slowly.What is clear now, though, is the direction Denver is moving on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball, and who will be orchestrating those respective sides.Stay tuned as more details emerge.[Update] Klis has confirmed that the team, after discussions with its new head coach Fangio, is going to go with Gary Kubiak as the offensive coordinator in 2019.
