You could argue that nobody is as dialed in to what happens in the NFL more than Peter King of Sports Illustrated.

Every week King issues his Monday Morning Quarterback column which is, quite simply, a must read for NFL fans everywhere.

But in the course of reading his 8,500-word epic, maybe missed the fact that King has listed his "top ten NFL assistants who will get sniffs for head coaching jobs in the league next year."

Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton showed up on the list -- at number eight.

It's somewhat surprising that Horton is that low on the list. The St. Louis Rams interviewed Horton last offseason for their vacant head coaching job before choosing Jeff Fisher for the post.

And despite Arizona's current seven-game losing streak, Horton's defense has been the strong point of the team, ranking seventh in the league in yardage allowed and 11th in points allowed.

Interestingly, another familiar name appears on the list ahead of Horton. Former ASU head coach Dirk Koetter, now the offensive coordinator of the Atlanta Falcons, appears at number five.
