Cardinals lose defensive backs coach Townsend to Mississippi State
Deshea Townsend, who just finished his second season as the team's assistant defensive backs coach, is leaving to be the defensive backs coach at Mississippi.
He tweeted the news, more or less, Friday.

Townsend was added to the Arizona staff shortly after defensive coordinator Ray Horton was hired. While some may view his defection as a sign Horton is not going to replace Ken Whisenhunt as head coach, it could just be a chance for Townsend to progress in his career as a coach.
