Less than 24 hours after the Arizona Cardinals fired their head coach, the team was ready to appoint his successor, former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid. Or at least, that is if the ubiquitous NFL "sources" and "insiders" are to be believed.
The rumors initially began to roll when Tim Ring of KYVK-TV tweeted "I am reporting the Cardinals are very close to a deal with Andy Reid to become the team's next head coach." He later followed up by adding "Reid follow-up: I am told by a league source that the Cardinals deal with Andy Reid is "all but done"." He later replied to a question confirming that his sources said Tom Heckert would form be part of a package deal with Reid.
