Reports: Reid to be named Cardinals coach
Andy Reid is reportedly on his way to becoming the Arizona Cardinals next coach.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Tuesday that "it is a done deal" and KTVK-TV in Arizona reported that Reid is "very close" to being named the Cardinals' coach. ESPN also reported that there is a "95 percent" chance that Reid will be hired by Arizona.
Reid was fired Monday as coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. The Cardinals' job opened up when Ken Whisenhunt was fired the same day.
Reid coached Philadelphia for 14 years and was let go after a 4-12 season.
Arizona reportedly planned to interview its defensive coordinator, Ray Horton.
Suspecting he would be fired by the Eagles, Reid had already started putting together a coaching staff for the 2013 season.
Reid has several reasons for his interest in the job. His wife, Tammy, is from the Phoenix area. He would also be reunited with quarterback Kevin Kolb, whom he drafted and coached in Philadelphia.
