Drew Petzing, who was previously the Cleveland Browns’ quarterbacks coach, has been named the Arizona Cardinals’ new offensive coordinator by Jonathan Gannon, their new head coach.
They will be hiring another Browns coach for their offensive staff.
According to CBS Sports’ Josina AndersonPetzing wanted Israel Woolfork to Arizona, and he will be their quarterbacks coach.
This will be Woolfork’s first official NFL coaching job.
From 2013-2021, he was a graduate assistant and running backs coach at Miami University.
He was named a Bill Walsh Coaching Fellow in the 2021 offseason to assist the Browns with their tight ends. Each offseason, NFL teams offer the Bill Walsh Coaching Fellow to minority coaches.
This past season, he was the Brown’s second-ever recipient of the Bill Willis Coaching Fellowship, working on offense. This fellowship is similar to the Cardinals’ Bill Bidwill Coaching Fellowship, which creates an opportunity for rising minority coaches.
Woolfork was given permission to join the Cardinals’ staff.
He will be working alongside Colt McCoy, Kyler McCoy, and any other Cardinals that might be brought in to the position during this offseason.
