The Cardinals fired Steve Wilks after the team took a step back this season and finished the year with the worst record in the National Football League at 3-13. Kingsbury was sacked by Texas Tech on November 25 after seven seasons, including six as head coach, and was hired by USC to be its offensive coordinator on December 5. USC is also now claiming that he hasn't resigned, though he has interviews scheduled with the Jets and Cardinals. Their objective this offseason was simple: find No. 10 overall pick Josh Rosen a coach who can develop him.
"I have no idea", McDaniels said.
During his eight seasons in Lubbock, Kingsbury went 35-40, leading to his firing following Texas Tech's season. It makes no sense to do that if you're a college team. It was their third straight season with 11 or more losses under Bowles. He once was a backup in NY, completing a 17-yard pass on his only attempt. He finished the regular season ranked dead last in DYAR, DVOA, and QBR.More news: Harris blazes to 77 as Australia fight back against India
The former Air Raid slinger served as offensive coordinator at Texas A&M during the height of Johnny Manziel mania before taking the post at Texas Tech. It's hard to blame Rosen for all of his issues when he was seldom placed in a situation to succeed. Both of their futures are now tied together.
McDaniels, who backed out of the head coaching gig with the Indianapolis Colts previous year, is reportedly garnering interest from multiple teams, including the Green Bay Packers and the Cleveland Browns.
Kingsbury is known as a brilliant offensive mind who gets the best out of the quarterbacks he coaches.
