The person spoke to The Associated Press Thursday on the condition of anonymity because no announcement has been made about Hurtt joining Chicago's staff. Louisville released a statement saying Hurtt is leaving the program for an NFL position but did not specify what team.
Hurtt, 35, was sanctioned last fall by the NCAA for violations committed as a Miami assistant. Louisville had suspended Hurtt for the violations and he was under a two-year show-cause penalty requiring compliance updates to the sanctioning body.
New Cardinals coach Bobby Petrino had announced he would retain Hurtt from the staff of former Cardinals coach Charlie Strong, who left earlier this month for Texas.
