The Buffalo Bills will meet with Ken Whisenhunt on Tuesday and Ray Horton on Wednesday as they search for a new head coach. Whisenhunt was the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals for six seasons from 2007-2012 and Horton is the Cardinals current defensive coordinator. Buffalo went 6-10 for the second consecutive year and fired Chan Gailey after three seasons as head coach.
Whisenhunt led the Cardinals to the playoffs in 2008 and 2009 and an appearance in Super Bowl XLIII following the 2008 season. He was fired by the Cardinals following a 5-11 season in 2012 and struggled to make Arizona competitive after the retirement of Kurt Warner.
Ray Horton served as the Cardinals defensive coordinator over the last two seasons. Prior to his time in Arizona he was the defensive backs coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he was a coaching protege of Dick LeBeau. The Cardinals improved from the 30th-ranked scoring defense in 2010 to the 17th-ranked scoring defense in both 2011 and 2012. There are rumors that the Cardinals are interested in elevating Horton to become the head coach in Arizona.
