TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have hired two-time Olympic gold medalist Roger Kingdom as assistant strength and conditioning coach.

The team also re-signed nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu.

Kingdom won the 110-meter hurdles at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics and defended the title four years later in Barcelona. He has spent the last 10 years as director of the track and field and cross country programs at California University of Pennsylvania.

Ta'amu appeared in 14 games, three as a starter, for the Cardinals last season after the team claimed him off waivers from the Pittsburgh Steelers.
