Earlier this week, the
announced that Steve Keim will fill the vacant general manager role, but the team has yet to make much progress on its search for a new head coach. Keim’s presence should help accelerate the process but don’t expect anything to happen soon regarding the Cardinals’ slow-moving search.
More than likely, Arizona has its eye on a candidate whose team is still engaged in the NFL playoffs.
The Cardinals have disclosed having multiple interviews with current defensive coordinate Ray Horton and talking with
offensive coordinator Mike McCoy last weekend, but it’s likely that more candidates will arise in the coming weeks. Reports indicate that
offensive coordinator Jay Gruden will also be interviewed.
Unfortunately for Arizona, several other teams are taking this wait-and-see mentality.
That list includes the
San Diego Chargers
can also be added to the mix as Mike Mularkey has been dismissed.
Meanwhile, only the
Kansas City Chiefs
) have managed to find a new head coach.
A host of candidates will likely surface in the Cardinals’ search but those same candidates will also be coveted by the other teams seeking a new head coach.
Name such as Gruden,
offensive coordinator) and Bruce Arians (
offensive coordinator) are starting to pick up steam as each team lost in the wild-card round of the NFL playoffs.
Other names to keep tabs on include Gus Bradley (
defensive coordinator), Tom Clements (
Green Bay Packers
offensive coordinator) and Greg Roman (
San Francisco 49ers
The Seahawks, Packers and 49ers will all battle in the divisional round of the postseason and at least one of these names will be free to pursue a head coaching position following this weekend.
