Although Kliff Kingsbury was fired after the Cardinals finished the 2022 season 4-13, teams were still interested in Kingsbury joining their staff in 2023 as an offensive assistant.
But at least right now, that interest isn’t mutual.
According to FOX Sports’ Peter Schrager, multiple teams have contacted Kingsbury about interviewing for an offensive coordinator job. But Kingsbury bought a one-way ticket to Thailand and is not interested in an interview at this time.
As PFT previously reported, Kingsbury’s contract was guaranteed until the 2026 season with an option for 2027.
There are several teams with an opening at OC, such as the Jets, Patriots, Commanders, Titans, and Rams – in addition to teams that will have all-new staff. Kingsbury has ties to the Patriots as he was a former New England backup quarterback. He is also a good friend of Rams head coach Sean McVay.
Kingsbury compiled a 28-37-1 record in four seasons as Arizona’s head coach and offensive play-caller. In 2020 and 2021, the Cardinals finished in the top 10 in total yards. But the Cardinals never reached the top 10 in scoring, with their highest ranking being No. 11 in 2021.
