Worst Cardinals turn to QB guru Kliff Kingsbury as next coach

Report: Josh McDaniels 'very much in play' for Packers Report: Jets Interview Kliff Kingsbury For Head Coaching Job

A report surfaced last week that USC had blocked the Cardinals and the New York Jets from interviewing their brand new offensive coordinator to fill those teams' head coaching vacancies.

The Cardinals hired Kliff Kingsbury as their next head coach on Tuesday, bringing yet another offensive-minded guru to the NFC West. Less than two months ago, Kingsbury was sacked at Texas Tech after three consecutive losing seasons.

As a high-profile coordinator with the Patriots, McDaniels has had many rounds of head coach interviews in recent years. "That's something I think is important to have that relationship with the quarterback that's what I've always done", Kingsbury said.

Kingsbury has his work cut out for him with the Cardinals.

Kingsbury and Spavital were on staff together at Houston in the mid 2000's.

That also provides the Packers with the luxury of picking from a long list of candidates, and it appears that they are narrowing their search down to Adam Gase and Josh McDaniels, at least according to Tom Silverstein of USA Today Sports.

When he was recognized as the league's most valuable player last season, Harden posted 30.4 points and 8.8 assists per game. The big question is whether or not the Rockets star has actually surpassed the man dubbed as "King James" at this point.

Kingsbury will now take over for Steve Wilks, who was sacked by the Cardinals after just one year. He started with the team in 2001, working in different roles until eventually becoming offensive coordinator in 2005.

Mahomes wasn't Kingsbury's only other quarterback protégé who would go on to the NFL.

The Cardinals' record last year was their worst in 18 years and matched the worst since the franchise moved to the desert from St. Louis in 1988. Arians coached the Arizona Cardinals for five years, stepping down after the 2017 season with a 50-32-1 record that included one NFC Championship game appearance.

It's not quite clear when or how the coordinator ended his tenure with the Trojans.

Green Bay is the only known interview McDaniels had. To this point, the Browns have met with Gregg Williams, Freddie Kitchens, Jim Caldwell, Kevin Stefanski, Dan Campbell, Brian Flores, and Matt Eberflus.
