azcentral.com blogs - Kent Somers - Pursuing an assistant coach
Most head coaches I've known like to fill staff positions before they head to Mobile, Ala., to scout prospects in the Senior Bowl. That's because the event is a job fair as well as an all-star game. Unemployed coaches attend, hoping to finagle interviews and jobs. Head coaches can be inundated by potential candidates. It's an awkward situation for everyone. So I'm sure Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt has been approached by more than one coach looking for a job. Whisenhunt has one opening on his staff, quarterbacks coach, and is expected to interview some candidates while at the Senior Bowl. Those candidates include former Raiders head coach Hue Jackson. Several news outlets have reported that the Cardinals have also made contact with former Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians.

The Coyotes' mantra was a recurring one: end this home-ice funk and go into the All-Star break on a winning note. Twice holding two-goal margins, only to see them sliced to one, the Coyotes hung on to defeat the Ottawa Senators 3-2 on Tuesday night at Jobing.com Arena. The win broke a three-game losing streak and finally got their home record over .500 (10-9-4).

The Raptors held off a torrid rally that came too late from the Suns to win 99-96 Tuesday night, dropping the Suns to 6-11 in a shortened season that doesn't leave much time to clean up the mess.
