Jeez the Arizona Cardinals just can’t stop copying after the Pittsburgh Steelers. They’re even copying the ways of turning linebackers into linebacker coaches. Former Steelers linebacker Larry Foote will be joining the Arizona Cardinals coaching staff as a linebackers coach this season.

Larry Foote spent eleven seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers as a linebacker and one season with the Detroit Lions. They recently lost their defensive coordinator, Todd Bowles to the New York Jets head coaching position. The Cardinals are also paper-thin at the linebacker position with Daryl Washington still serving suspension for violating the league’s policy for substance abuse and has a domestic violence history that would make Ray Rice blush that the league has conveniently ignored thanks to Washington’s propensity to violate other policies as well.

Good luck, Coach Foote. You’ve got your work cut out for you.
