Gannon originally claimed he aimed to stay in Philly, however, after the Super Bowl, plans shifted.
The sights in and weather out in Glendale may have been too much to resist.
Michael Bidwill held back-to-back meetings with the defensive coordinator, which seemingly went well.
Gannon has done a terrific job with the Eagles’ defense over his past two seasons with the team. Philadelphia finished near the top of the league in just about every department in 2022.
Arizona was the last NFL team to fill the head coaching role.
It has been a tremendously long process, but finally, the Cardinals can focus on getting ready for the 2023 season.
