Sources: Ray Horton To Sign With Cardinals, Cowboys Keep Looking For Secondary Coach

ESPN's Adam Schefter twittered earlier today that it appears to be a done deal that the Steelers secondary coach Ray Horton will sign on as the new defensive coordinator with the Cardinals. In a sign that talks may have progressed further than previously known, Horton may bring former Steelers CB Deshea Townsend - who played under Horton in Pittsburgh - to Arizona with him as an assistant coach.

The Cowboys had also been interested in signing Horton, but becoming defensive backs coach in Dallas would have been a lateral move, and therefore unlikely.

However, Dallas' interest in Horton does signal that Garrett is looking for at least some degree of change in the secondary coaching ranks. Dave Campo's future in Dallas is currently unclear and according to David Moore from the DMN, Campo has told associates that he is uncertain whether the Cowboys want to retain him on the defensive staff. No word either on Brett Maxie's future as the DB coach in Dallas, although the Cowboys did refuse the Texan's request for an interview, which could be a good sign for him.

Who do you think the Cowboys should be looking at as a coaching option for the secondary?

[UPDATE 5:15 PM EST: Cardinals make it official and hire Ray Horton, making him the 23rd coordinator working for one of the four teams in the NFC West since 2008.]
