Cards shift McNulty to QB coach, hire Reich

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have moved Mike McNulty to quarterbacks coach and hired longtime NFL quarterback Frank Reich to coach wide receivers.

McNulty replaces Chris Miller, who was fired after last season. McNulty had been Arizona’s wide receivers coach the past three seasons. He previously coaches quarterbacks and served as offensive coordinator at Rutgers. His NFL coaching background includes five years with Jacksonville and one with Dallas.

Reich spent the last six seasons on the staff of the Indianapolis Colts, the last one as wide receivers coach.

Reich spent 14 years in the NFL as a quarterback, nine of them with the Buffalo Bills. He was quarterbacks coach for the Colts in 2009-10 before switching to the wide receiver responsibilities last season.

During his playing career, Reich helped author the greatest comeback in NFL history when he led the Bills back from a 35-3 third quarter deficit to a 41-38 overtime victory against the Houston Oilers in the 1992 AFC Wild Card playoff game. He also led the University of Maryland back from a 31-0 deficit to Miami in 1984 to a 42-40 victory. At the time it was the biggest comeback in college football history.
