You know that thing we said earlier about the possibility that no head coaches will be fired during the season? That could be wrong.
Mike Jurecki of XTRA 910 in Phoenix reports that the Cardinals are having “internal discussions” regarding defensive coordinator Ray Horton. Given that the team’s defense has had little to do with the team’s eight-game losing streak, the fair inference is that the Cards are considering firing coach Ken Whisenhunt and promoting Horton to interim head coach.
If it happens that would keep Whisenhunt from matching Jim Hanifan as the longest-tenured coach in team history, with six full seasons.
