Carthon follows Haley to Kansas City

Another Cardinals assistant coach has traveled the Arizona-to-Kansas City pipeline.

Maurice Carthon left the Cardinals on Thursday and joined new coach Todd Haley in Kansas City as the Chiefs’ assistant head coach. Carthon was the running backs coach in Arizona under Haley, who was the offensive coordinator, and the two also worked together with the Dallas Cowboys in 2004 and the New York Jets from 1997 to 2000.

The Cardinals quickly moved to fill the vacancy left by Carthon, announcing that Curtis Modkins will be their new running backs coach. Modkins held the same job with the Chiefs last season.

Haley had previously brought former Cardinals defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast and offensive assistant Dedric Ward to the Chiefs.

The Chiefs also announced the responsibilities of six other members of their coaching staff, most notably Chan Gailey remaining offensive coordinator. Bob Bicknell (tight ends), Joe D’Alessandris (assistant offensive line), Steve Hoffman (special teams), Bill Muir (offensive line) and Ward (wide receivers) also received their assignments.
