Ken Whisenhunt will finish season as Cardinals coach

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Whisenhunt will close out the season as the Cardinals' head coach despite an abysmal nine game losing streak.

The Arizona Cardinals had some some salt rubbed in an open wound on Sunday when their losing streak was extended to nine games in near-legendary fashion. The Seattle Seahawks broke a franchise record for a shutout loss, and almost had the largest shutout loss since the merger when they shellacked the Cardinals 58-0 in Seattle.

Despite the humiliating loss and the extended losing streak, Cardinals owner Michael Bidwell told reporters today head coach Ken Whisenhunt isn't going anywhere and will coach the team for their final three games of the season.

This much losing is a new phenomenon for Whisenhunt with the Cardinals. He's won two division championships with the team and guided them to Super Bowl XLII, where they lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Cardinals' worst season under Whisenhunt came in 2012 when they finished the year 5-11 and last in the NFC West. The Cardinals will try to keep their losing streak from hitting double digits next Sunday when they face the Detroit Lions at home.
