Looking to start fresh, the Cleveland Browns will reportedly interview Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton next week, but they may have competition from the San Diego Chargers.
As we found out Saturday, new Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam is intent on cleaning house, starting with head coach Pat Shurmur and general manager Tom Heckert. News started leaking out Sunday of at least one coaching candidate. Kenny Roda of ESPN 850 tweeted the Browns have interest in Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton.
Just texted with @tonygrossi & he's heard the same thing about Ray Horton of Arz. Cards getting an interview with the Browns early in week— Kenny Roda (@roadmanwknr) December 30, 2012
A second Roda tweet reported that the Browns aren't the only ones in on Horton. The San Diego Chargers, who are expected to fire head coach Norv Turner some time after the team's final game against the Oakland Raiders, also are interested in Horton.
The Browns take on the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field today. Kickoff for that game is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET.
