Found January 18, 2013 on Fox Sports Arizona:
PLAYERS: Adam Schefter
Ray Horton won't be back as the Cardinals' defensive coordinator. FOX Sports Arizona confirmed Friday that Horton and the team have parted ways following the hiring of new coach Bruce Arians. The 42-year-old Horton had been considered one of the frontrunners for the Cardinals' head coaching job he was the first to interview for it after overseeing the defense for the last two seasons. Local radio host Mike Jurecki and USA Today's Mike Garafolo indicated Friday that Horton was upset with the team's front office, believing he would be the hire after Mike McCoy, another candidate for the job with whom the Cardinals had requested a second interview, accepted the Chargers' coaching job instead. ESPN's Adam Schefter also tweeted Thursday night that, as of an hour after the Cardinals' announcement of hiring Arians, Horton had still not received a call from the team informing him that a decision had been made. The Cardinals finished the 2012 season 12th in yards allowed and 17th in scoring defense after finishing 18th and 17th in those categories in 2011. There have been widespread reports that Arians plans to bring in Todd Bowles, who was promoted from secondary coach to defensive coordinator by the Eagles early in the 2012 season, but that has not been confirmed, and Arians declined to speculate about the position during his media availability Thursday. Horton has reportedly drawn interest from the Browns about their vacancy at defensive coordinator since being let out of his contract.
