Ray Horton not sharing his offensive plans

Thearon W. Henderson

The Cardinals' defensive coordinator believes he could improve the team's offense if he were hired as head coach, but he's not ready to go into specifics about how he'd do so.

One of the few bright spots in the Arizona Cardinals' 2012 season was the performance defensive coordinator Ray Horton's squad. The Cardinals' team defense ranked No. 12 in the league, while the stout passing defense ranked No. 5 overall. That performance earned the Horton an interview for the team's vacant head coaching position.

Horton sat down with team president Mike Bidwill, vice president of player personnel Steve Keim and director of player personnel Jason Licht for an interview on Wednesday. In a post-interview chat with the media, the 52-year-old mentioned he had his sights set on changing and fixing the offense, but would not share specifics on how he planned to do so.

Via azcentral.com:

"Not yet because I don't want somebody else to take my ideas and use them. Just different. Not saying that something is better but there's a great book called Who Moved My Cheese. Change is good and change is necessary, especially in this business. Nobody stays the same. Change happens in this league."

Horton was scheduled to have an interview with the Buffalo Bills late Wednesday and has heard rumors that the Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers might be interested in his services.
