Tempe, AZ (Sports Network) - The Arizona Cardinals named Steve Keim as the
club's new general manager on Tuesday.
Keim takes over for Rod Graves, who was fired on Dec. 31 along with head coach
Ken Whisenhunt. He will be formally introduced in a press conference scheduled
for 5 p.m. (ET).
The 40-year-old joined the franchise in 1999 as a college scout, eventually
working his way up to vice president of player personnel -- the post in which
he served last season. Keim also worked as director of college scouting and
director of player personnel.
An offensive lineman at North Carolina State, Keim played briefly for the
Miami Dolphins and Edmonton Eskimos.
