RICHIE GETS BUSTED
Cardinals assistant Richie Anderson, considered a rising star in coaching circles, has been arrested and charged with solicitation of prostitution (http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/10050843).
The arrest came as part of a sting operation in Phoenix. Anderson allegedly solicited an undercover officer.
We assume the officer was a female, but nothing would surprise us at this point.
Anderson, a former Jets assistant, was hired by the Cardinals in January. He spent thirteen seasons as a player with the Jets and the Cowboys.
The entry page to the team's web site (http://www.azcardinals.com/) declares: "2007 Arizona Cardinals Football. Smart. Tough. Disciplined." It might already be time for a revision.

PHOENIX - Former NFL running back Richie Anderson, now an assistant coach with the Arizona Cardinals, was arrested during a Phoenix police anti-prostitution operation.

Anderson, 35, was arrested at about 9:30 p.m. Thursday for soliciting prostitution at about 9:30 p.m., Sgt. Andy Hill said. The department's vice unit was conducting an undercover sting operation in south Phoenix when Anderson allegedly solicited an officer posing as a prostitute.

Ken Whisenhunt, the Cardinals new head coach, hired Anderson as wide receivers coach in January. He played 13 seasons in the NFL with the New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys. He was a 2000 Pro Bowl selection while with the Jets and holds the team record for receptions by a running back at 305.

He retired as a player after the 2005 season and spent 2006 as an assistant wide receivers and tight end coach with the Jets.

Cardinals officials said they planned to release a statement on Anderson's arrest.

Part of me is smiling because I hate the Cardinals.

Part of me is frowning because he's a Penn State alum.

Is this any more embarrassing to Arizona than Leinart hooking up with Paris Hilton?

At least Anderson was going to leave a $20 on the dresser.

"I wanted the chance to review the details of the situation before making any decision," said head coach Ken Whisenhunt. "While it's disappointing, I've decided that this is clearly in the best interests of our team in this particular instance. Our focus is now on finding a replacement and I am confident we will be able to do that relatively soon."
