Green fires offensive coordinator, gives job to Kruczek

Updated:
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) _ Arizona Cardinals coach Dennis Green fired offensive coordinator Keith Rowen on Tuesday and replaced him with quarterbacks coach Mike Kruczek.

The move came hours after the Cardinals blew a 20-point lead and lost to the Chicago Bears 24-23 on Monday night.

``I've known Keith for a long time. I have the utmost respect for him,'' Green said. ``We are not scoring enough points.''

Kruczek becomes Green's third offensive coordinator in the coach's 2 1/2 seasons in Arizona.

Green said he was talking with Rowen about what other position he might take on the staff.

Kruczek has been quarterbacks coach since Green arrived.

``I think his close working relationship with Matt Leinart will give us a better chance,'' Green said.
