Cardinals call Sean McVay a 'genius' in Kliff Kingsbury hiring announcement

Cardinals call Sean McVay a 'genius' in Kliff Kingsbury hiring announcement

The most recent plot twist came when it was reported Saturday that USC athletic director Lynn Swann was blocking Kingsbury from interviewing with the Cardinals and New York Jets.

While his record doesn't necessarily reflect a ton of success, going 35-40 as Texas Tech's head coach, Kingsbury fits the mold for an National Football League trending more and more toward high-powered offenses. That's why we brought him here. On top of that, Kingsbury coached current Cleveland Browns starter - and NFL Rookie of the Year hopeful - Baker Mayfield for one year at Texas Tech before an acrimonious split prompted Mayfield to transfer to Oklahoma, where he also won a Heisman and became the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 draft. He could be one of the hottest head coaching candidates next year.

"I don't think there is any doubt that a veteran coordinator would be ideal in this situation", Keim said. While Kingsbury would have a say in how his team is put together, he will not have to worry as much about the off-field considerations of building a franchise.

McDaniels is one of Belichick's most-tenured assistants, having served under him for a combined 15 years - ten as offensive coordinator - over two different stints, beginning in 2001.

Kingsbury will now take over for Steve Wilks, who was sacked by the Cardinals after just one year.

Playing behind a makeshift offensive line decimated by injuries, he wound up last among quarterbacks who played regularly, completing 55 percent of his passes for 2,278 yards and 11 touchdowns, with 14 intercepts and a 66.7 quarterback rating.

Mahomes wasn't Kingsbury's only other quarterback protégé who would go on to the NFL. Then you have Gase, who has spent the last three years in Miami with Ryan Tannehill, so going from a mediocre guy like Tannehill to an all-time great like Rodgers would obviously be a welcome change. Green Bay is the only team McDaniels has Interviewed with per Ian Rapoport. To this point, the Browns have met with Gregg Williams, Freddie Kitchens, Jim Caldwell, Kevin Stefanski, Dan Campbell, Brian Flores, and Matt Eberflus. But if he still wants to be a head coach, he may simply have to wait Belichick out until he takes the reins.
