While all has been quiet on the defensive coordinator front in Berea, NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora speculates that the Cleveland Browns’ future defensive coordinator will be Ray Horton. Just going to reiterate what I first reported earlier tonight. still sounds like Todd Bowles ends up in AZ and Ray Horton ends up in CLE — Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 18, 2013 Presently employed by the Arizona Cardinals, the recent hiring of Bruce Arians as their new head coach means that is increasingly less likely that Horton is retained. In a game of musical chairs, Todd Bowles will be ushered out of Philadelphia — with Chip Kelly looking to bring in his own coordinator — and potentially to Arizona, leaving Horton with options after a reported “heated exchange” following the hiring of Arians. Horton, who did an otherwise excellent job in 2012 while the Cardinals’ offense fell apart, was considered a strong candidate to replace the fired Ken Whisenhunt as the next head coach. It was Ray Horton who was not only interviewed early on by the Browns, but had his name in the mix for the head coaching gig at a time when Penn State’s Bill O’Brien and Syracuse’s Doug Marrone were still considered candidates. He was hired by the Cardinals in 2011 after working seven seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers (2004-10). He is a 3-4 defensive coordinator from the Dick Lebeau tree.
