PHOENIX — New Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has brought in Tom Moore and Harold Goodwin to help him overhaul the worst offense in the NFL.

And as expected, he hired Todd Bowles as defensive coordinator. Moore has 34 years of experience as an NFL assistant, 12 as Peyton Manning's offensive coordinator in Indianapolis.

He will serve as Arians' assistant head coach/offense. Goodwin, offensive line coach for the Colts last season and an assistant with the Steelers five years before that, will be Arizona's offensive coordinator.
