CBS NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports that three teams are set to interview defensive coordinator Ray Horton to fill their head coaching vacancy (AP File Photo).
The end of the regular season is less than a day old, and already Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton has become one of the league's hottest commodities.

The interest makes plenty of sense, after all, Arizona's defense under Horton in 2012 was near the top of the league in passing defense and turnovers forced.

Seven NFL teams on "Black Monday" fired their respective head coaches, including the Arizona Cardinals, and Horton's name has been linked to several of them.

Monday night, CBS NFL Insider Jason La Canfora tweeted this about Horton's potential suitors:

The Bills have a connection to Horton, in that Director of Pro Personnel Doug Whaley spent considerable time with him in Pittsburgh. While the Browns have no direct ties to Arizona's defensive coordinator, Horton proved he can help shut down AFC North offenses as an assistant defensive coordinator to Dick LeBeau with the Steelers.

He also has NFL experience in the division, as he spent six seasons as a cornerback with the Cincinnati Bengals (1983-1988).
