KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Andy Reid appears unlikely to be come the Cardinals' next coach, with a source telling The Associated Press on Thursday that Reid is in negotiations with the Chiefs to become head coach and has cancelled plans to interview for other openings, including the one in Arizona. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the negotiations. The Eagles fired Reid on Monday, the same day the Chiefs parted ways with coach Romeo Crennel. Several members of the Chiefs organization met with Reid, who has also been linked to openings in Arizona and San Diego, for close to nine hours on Wednesday. The opening in Kansas City is attractive on several levels: The Chiefs had five Pro Bowl players despite their 2-14 record, they have the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft for the first time in franchise history, and it appears that chairman Clark Hunt is willing to give his next coach more authority to make personnel decisions than in years past. The Eagles were just 12-20 the past two seasons, but Reid's overall record of 130-93-1 included the most wins of any coach in franchise history. He also has experience turning around a program -- the Eagles were just 3-13 the year before he arrived, and two years later they finished 11-5 and second in the NFC East. That was the first of five straight years in which the Eagles won at least 11 games. Reid also took the Eagles to the Super Bowl after the 2004 season. With Reid out of the picture, the Cardinals' known candidates are defensive coordinator Ray Horton, who has already interviewed for the position; Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, who is expected to be interviewed by team president Michael Bidwill on Saturday; and Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley, who was granted permission to interview Thursday.
