Report: Rams to interview Ray Horton

After one season as the defensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardnals, Ray Horton has an opportunity for something much bigger.

Horton will be interviewed by the St. Louis Rams for their head-coaching vacancy, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. That means the Rams are looking to Arizona for two possible leaders. Cardinals director of player personnel Steve Keim is a candidate for the Rams’ general manager position.

Horton was a member of two Super Bowl champion staffs with the Pittsburgh Steelers as a secondary coach. He was credited with helping develop Steelers safety Troy Polamalu, the NFL defensive player of the year in 2010.

Horton will satisfy the Rooney Rule for the Rams, who also were reported to be interested in minority candidate Todd Bowles. It has largely been speculated that former Titans/Oilers coach Jeff Fisher is the leading man for the job.
