ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported that Pittsburgh Steelers’ secondary coach Ray Horton will meet with the Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday to finalize a deal to become the team’s next defensive coordinator; but, if that doesn’t work out, Horton may be coming to Dallas.
It should be said noted that this is highly doubtful at this point; Dallas considered Horton for the defensive coordinator opening and now, with Rob Ryan in the fold, Horton would be offered the role of secondary coach for Dallas, leaving Dave Campo to be reassigned or let go. It’s far more likely, of course, that Horton would take the coordinator job with Arizona.
Horton had stints as an assistant with Washington, Cincinnati and Detroit before landing in Pittsburgh; before that, he was a cornerback with the Bengals and the Cowboys, and actually won a Super Bowl (XXVII) with Dallas in 1992, his last season as a player in the NFL.
