TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - In a miserable season for his Arizona Cardinals, defensive coordinator Ray Horton is nonetheless a rising star in NFL coaching circles.
Expect Horton to be interviewed for some head coaching positions this offseason. Perhaps even in Arizona, should the Bidwill family decide to fire coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Horton was saying all the right things Friday after the team's final practice of the season - all he's thinking about is Sunday's finale at San Francisco. But he did acknowledge it's every coach's goal to someday get the top job.
His players certainly believe in him. Defensive end Calais Campbell says Horton would be an ``awesome'' head coach, and he wouldn't be surprised if he receives a lot off offers.
