Another name has surfaced in the St. Louis Rams’ head coaching search: Ray Horton.
The Rams have received permission from the Cardinals to interview Horton, Arizona’s defensive coordinator, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.
Horton is the second coach to be identified as a candidate for the Rams job. Jeff Fisher is widely viewed as the favorite, unless he chooses to take the Dolphins job instead.
By interviewing Horton the Rams will satisfy the requirements of the Rooney Rule, which stipulate that each team with a head-coaching vacancy must interview at least one minority candidate.
