Tuesday’s had plenty of chatter about Andy Reid being close to getting the Cardinals job, but the official word from the Cardinals is that no interview has been scheduled at this point.
Cardinals vice president of media relations Mark Dalton acknowledged that the team has reached out to Reid to talk to him about their coaching job, something president Michael Bidwill said they would do on Monday, while also saying that there’s been no meeting set up yet. Dalton also confirmed that current defensive coordinator Ray Horton interviewed for the head coaching job on Tuesday and that the team will interview Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy in Denver over the weekend.
Horton’s interview satisfies the Rooney Rule requirements concerning minority candidates, so the Cardinals could make their hire at any time. All signs are pointing to Reid at this point, although the fact that they’ve yet to speak to him could slow down the pace of the timeline that was being presented in various reports earlier on Tuesday.
Horton, McCoy and Reid are the only coaching candidates that have been linked to the Cardinals at this point. Horton and McCoy have each lined up other interviews for head coaching jobs in the last two days.
