The Arizona Cardinals filled both of their coordinator vacancies from within the organization on Wednesday -- by promoting three people.

Cards coach Ken Whisenhunt promoted linebackers coach Bill Davis to defensive coordinator, and split the offensive coordinator duties in two.

Receivers coach Mike Miller has been promoted to passing game coordinator, while Russ Grimm adds running game coordinator duties to his role as assistant head coach/offensive line.

The unconventional split of offensive coordinator duties means Whisenhunt will likely call the plays again, as he did before turning the role over to Todd Haley last season.

Both coordinator positions became vacant after the Super Bowl when Haley left to become the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs and Clancy Pendergast was fired.

In other moves, defensive quality control coach Matt Raich moves to linebackers coach to replace Davis; former Rutgers offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach John McNulty joins the team as receivers coach; and former NFL quarterback Chris Miller takes over as quarterbacks coach, repacing Jeff Rutledge who was let go.
