The Arizona Cardinals will not make a coaching change within the season. Instead, the Cardinals have announced that head coach Ken Whisenhunt will complete the season.
There was speculation that the head coach was going to be fired on Monday. But, as the speculation built, Cardinals president Michael Bidwill said that Whisenhunt will stay with the team for at least the next three games.
Bidwill added that “there is much to blame” after their disaster of a season. He said he will evaluate everything from top-to-bottom after the season.

He also said that the 58-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks is unacceptable. He said he did not want to make a decision regarding Whisenhunt “based on emotion” after the loss.
Whisenhunt has had his hands tied. He has had to deal with a horrible quarterback situation.
It’s hard to blame Whisenhunt when your quarterbacks are Kevin Kolb, Ryan Lindley, and John Skelton. All three are not franchise quarterbacks.
And their play has been lackluster at best. But the head coach gets the blame for the performance of the team, which is why the heat is on Whisenhunt.
The Cardinals began the season with a 4-0 record. This came with a shocking win over the New England Patriots.

Since then, the team has lost nine straight games. If this losing streak continues, it will be hard to believe that Whisenhunt will survive this.
Prior to this season, the head coach had a 40-40 record as a head coach. Before this campaign, his worst season as a head coach came during the 2010 season with a 5-11 record.
The way that the Cardinals are playing this season, they could possibly finish with a 5-11 record. But the likelihood is that it’ll be a worse record than that.
