The Arizona Cardinals have completed an extensive interview that spread over two days with defensive coordinator Ray Horton in the search for a replacement for fired coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Next up is Andy Reid, the longtime Philadelphia Eagles coach who was among seven NFL head coaches who got the axe on Monday. Reid's interview, while not formally scheduled, could come on Thursday.

Cardinals President Michael Bidwill has identified Horton, Reid and Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy as candidates to replace Whisenhunt, who was dismissed after six seasons. The Cardinals plan to interview McCoy in Denver this weekend.

Horton also has interviewed with the Cleveland Browns and had a session scheduled with the Buffalo Bills.
