The Arizona Cardinals have hired a new assistant special teams coach.

From the team:

The Arizona Cardinals Football Club today announced that the team has hired Devin Fitzsimmons as an assistant special teams coach.

Fitzsimmons has six years of experience as an assistant in the NFL, including working with Detroit as an assistant special teams coach between 2014-18. During his five seasons with the Lions, kicker Matt Prater converted 86.3% of his kicks (132 of 153) and in 2017 punt returner Jamal Agnew earned All-Pro recognition. He comes to the Cardinals from Vanderbilt where he worked as the Commodores special teams coordinator and tight ends coach the past two seasons (2019-20). While at Vanderbilt last season, Fitzsimmons oversaw the development of kicker Sarah Fuller, the first woman to play in a game for a Power Five conference team.

Fitzsimmons got his start in the NFL with Indianapolis in 2011 as an offensive quality control coach. He has also worked at the collegiate level at Rutgers (2012), Richmond (2010), Virginia (2009), Kansas State (2007-08), his alma mater, Bucknell (2006) and Shaw (2005).

Welcome to the desert, Coach Fitzsimmons.
