Cards Fire Offensive Coordinator

December 23, 1997

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) _ Dick Jamieson was fired today as offensive coordinator of the Arizona Cardinals following a season in which the team was last in the NFL in rushing and 24th in total offense.

``It is in the best interests of the Cardinals to make this change due to the results of the season and the climate that had evolved around Dick and our offense,″ coach Vince Tobin said in a news release.

Jamieson replaced Jim Fassel last January after Fassel was named coach of the New York Giants. Before that, he was running backs coach for two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Cardinals (4-12) averaged just 78.4 yards a game running this season.
