The Arizona Cardinals fired their coach and general manager Monday, but it appears they're not so eager to let go of another member of their coaching staff.

The Cardinals have received several requests from NFL teams for defensive coordinator Ray Horton to interview for vacant head coaching jobs, a team source told's Ian Rapoport. The Cardinals still are determining whether they should let Horton interview, the source said. Horton is also considered a candidate to replace Ken Whisenhunt as the team's head coach.

Horton has been an assistant coach with several NFL teams, including the Washington Redskins, Cincinnati Bengals, Detroit Lions and Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Cardinals fired Whisenhunt and general manager Rod Graves on Monday after the team finished the season 5-11.
