Amid reports that the Cardinals hope to hire Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy to be Arizona’s latest head coach and to keep Ray Horton as the team’s defensive coordinator, that plan is news to Horton.
A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that Horton currently isn’t aware of the team’s plans for him, and that he expects to hear more by Tuesday.
Horton remains under contract, along with the rest of the Arizona defensive staff. Coach Ken Whisenhunt and the rest of the offensive staff were fired 13 days ago.
The Cardinals have interviewed Horton multiple times for the head-coaching job. His defense was a strength in 2012; the team’s problems traced to its offense — primarily to its quarterback position.
