NEW YORK -- Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt and the Houston Texans' Gary Kubiak will visit troops in the Persian Gulf this summer on an NFL USO tour.

The father-and-son Moras will also take part in the third annual coaches tour.

Whisenhunt and Kubiak were asked to participate last summer and weren't able to, so both were thrilled to finally have the chance. Whisenhunt's father and brother served in the military.

The elder Jim Mora coached the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts, while the younger Jim Mora coached the Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks.

Brad Childress, Tom Coughlin, Bill Cowher, Jeff Fisher, John Fox, Jon Gruden, John Harbaugh, Marvin Lewis and Andy Reid have gone on the tour over the last two years.
