Ray Horton was a candidate to be the next head coach of the Arizona Cardinals but lost the job to Bruce Arians. The Cardinals were looking to improve their offense but Adam Green of ArizonaSports.com reports Horton had a plan to revive the offense.
According to Horton, who took a job as the defensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns last week, he would have been able to land one of the NFL's most respected offensive coordinators in Norv Turner.
"Unequivocally," Horton told Arizona Sports 620's Burns and Gambo Thursday when asked if he could have brought Turner in as part of his staff.
Horton said he spoke with Turner all throughout the process of the coaching search, and he was looking forward to coming to Arizona.
"Yes, and his wife Nancy wanted to come here," Horton said.
Turner, who was recently fired as head coach of the San Diego Chargers, has had great success as an offensive play caller, the 60-year-old took a job as Cleveland's offensive coordinator, where he will be working alongside Horton.
