KTVK-TV is reporting and confirmed by several NFL insiders, former Philadelphia Eagles head coach, Andy Reid, could replace Ken Whisenhunt as the Arizona Cardinals‘ head coach as early as the end of the week. Both Reid and Whisenhunt were fired on Monday.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter cited team and league sources in following up that first report, and CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora is hearing very much the same thing. One source told Schefter that he’s “95 percent” certain that Reid will get the job. La Canfora reported on Tuesday evening via Twitter that Reid will officially interview with the Cardinals on Wednesday. It’s possible, however, that the Arizona meeting could happen Thursday, because Reid will interview with Kansas City Chiefs executives in Philadelphia on Wednesday before traveling west.
The Cardinals are trying to fast-track the process. Cardinals VP of media operations Mark Dalton said on Twitter that current defensive coordinator Ray Horton interviewed for the position on Tuesday, and that the Cards might also talk with Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.
