Arizona Cardinals want Mike McCoy back for a second interview

The team's interest in the Denver offensive coordinator is now confirmed.


The past few days for the Arizona Cardinals coaching search have been a lot of waiting, but now there appears to be some movement ready to happen. The team is reportedly trying to bring Mike McCoy for a second interview, according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.

There has been a lot of reported interest in the Denver Broncos offensive coordinator, but since his team was still in the playoffs, Arizona and other teams were in a holding pattern because they could not do much until either the Broncos lost in the playoffs or they won the Super Bowl.

If the team brings him in, it will be only the second candidate to have a second interview. The team has interviewed Bengals OC Jay Gruden, McCoy, and reportedly Steelers OC Todd Haley once. Current defensive coordinator Ray Horton has had two interviews with the team.

McCoy is a hot name right now with teams looking for a new head coach. He worked with Peyton Manning this year and has helped other quarterbacks like Tim Tebow, Jake Delhomme and Matt Moore have success.

Arizona is targeting a head coach that will be able to bring the worst-rated offense in the league back to respectability and fix the quarterback position.

McCoy and Horton are rumored to be the favorites to land the job.

Horton is reportedly expecting to hear something from the team on Tuesday, and a second interview with McCoy could be the deciding factor. If this timeline is true, we may know in the next couple of days who will be leading the team in 2013.
