Kliff Kingsbury to become head coach of Arizona Cardinals

  • Report: Josh McDaniels 'very much in play' for Packers

However, because of the contract he signed with the Trojans and a new rule mandated from the NFL's owners meetings in December, USC was able to block interview requests.

But that was under a defensive coach in Wilks, an offensive coordinator who got fired midway through the season in Mike McCoy, and a first-time interim offensive coordinator in Byron Leftwich. That same day, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Cardinals and Kingsbury had "strong mutual interest" in each other.

Kingsbury has already spoken with with the Arizona Cardinals since USC chose to allow him to speak to professional teams.

The NFC West, by the way, suddenly features the following four coaches (ages in parentheses): Kingsbury (39), Sean McVay (32), Kyle Shahahan (39), and Pete Carroll (67). I have appreciated every single one of them. USC can't wait forever to find out if he's going to be their offensive coordinator or not.

New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels won't pursue any of the available head coaching jobs remaining in the current cycle.

Kingsbury would certainly break the mold. They went 35-40 during Kingsbury's tenure. After two seasons, he left with Sumlin for Texas A&M where he ran the offence during Johnny Manziel's Heisman Trophy-winning season in 2012.

While the hype around Kingsbury may seem warranted, it seems to have reached extreme levels. He may have a great offensive mind but there is little evidence he is ready to take over an National Football League franchise. He told reporters he was thankful for the opportunity to interview with the Green Bay Packers for their head coaching vacancy but will not be conducting any more interviews this year.
