The Arizona Cardinals are officially searching for a new head coach after firing Ken Whisenhunt, and candidates are beginning to emerge. It has long been suspected that defensive coordinator Ray Horton is one guy the team will consider, especially since his name is coming up with other teams, including the Cleveland Browns. Aside from Horton, we now have one other name in the coaching search -- Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.

Arizona and Chicago have asked for and received permission to interview Broncos OC Mike McCoy for their HC job. Will interview this weekend.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 31, 2012
Team president Michael Bidwill will address the media Monday afternoon and may divulge the candidates they have.
It would honestly surprise me if the team makes it all the way to the weekend to decide on their next head coach, especially if it ends up Horton. But if this takes a few days, we know that the team is serious about improving its offense.
