GLENDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

There's a lot of speculation about who will be the next coach for the Arizona Cardinals. 

One report says the team has already named a new coach, but the team's blog says there isn't a final candidate picked.

According to the CBS Sports NFL Insider, Andy Reid, former coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, will be head coach for the Cards.

The team's blog says they would like to meet with Reid, but no interview has been set up yet.

We talked to people around the University of Phoenix stadium to get their reaction to the rumors. Fans we talked to said a change in leadership may serve the team well, and that Reid would be a good choice - but a well-rounded quarterback is also at the top of their list.

"Bringing him in is definitely going to bring that excitement back for next season and also bring in new fans who follow Andy Reid," said Mario Sneezy, the manager of 'Just Sports' at Westgate.

"He's having some troubles, too, with the Eagles and everything, but he's a good coach," said Cardinals fan Armando Morales.

"I hope they find the right quarterback, we're on our third string, fourth string," said Cardinals fan Alexis Montes.

The team has interviewed their defensive coordinator Ray Horton and plans to interview Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.

Former coach Ken Whisenhunt was let go on Monday after six years with the team.  Longtime General Manager Rod Graves was also fired. [Related: Arizona Cardinals fire GM Graves, coach Whisenhunt]

Reid was fired Monday after 14 seasons as head coach in Philadelphia.
