The Arizona Cardinals continue to build their coaching staff, and now they have hired Sam Siefkes as their new linebackers coach, per NFL insider Tom Pelissero.
The #Cardinals are hiring #Vikings assistant linebackers coach Sam Siefkes as their LBs coach, per source. Another Minnesota connection on Jonathan Gannon’s staff.

Siefkes was the Vikings’ assistant linebackers coach last season before previously being the defensive quality control coach in 2021.
Coincidentally, Siefkes replaced the now-Cardinals’ defensive coordinator Nick Rallis during his time with the Vikings.
Prior to his first gig at the NFL level in Minnesota, Siefkes coached at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse as a defensive backs coach.
Jonathan Gannon continues to build an extremely young coaching staff full of names that hopefully everyone will soon know.
