Here is the latest on the Arizona Cardinals' search for a new head coach following the firing of Ken Whisenhunt on Monday:

Arizona is scheduled to interview former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid, possibly as early as Thursday, for its head coaching vacancy. Reid, who coached the Eagles for 14 years before being fired on Monday, was interviewed by the Kansas City Chiefs for their vacant head coaching post on Wednesday.

The Cardinals also completed an extensive two-day interview process with defensive coordinator Ray Horton on Wednesday. Horton just completed his second season as Arizona's defensive coordinator. Horton has also reportedly been interviewed by the Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns for their respective head coaching vacancies.

Cardinals President Michael Bidwill has also identified Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy as  a possible candidate to replace Whisenhunt. The Red Birds plan to interview McCoy in Denver this weekend. They have a small window to interview him because the Broncos are in the AFC playoffs but have a bye this coming weekend.

Speaking of Whisenhunt, the former Cardinals head coach has also been interviewed by the Bills for their head coaching job. Whisenhunt went 45-51 in six seasons with the Red Birds but was 4-2 in the playoffs and led Arizona to its lone Super Bowl appearance against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Feb. 1, 2009. The Cardinals lost that game in Tampa, 27-23.
