Kliff Kingsbury Meets With The New York Jets And Arizona Cardinals

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it will occur Tuesday, a day after meeting with the New York Jets and impressing them.

Kingsbury is best known as the head coach at Texas Tech from 2013 to 2018, a position that allowed him the chance to coach up some current National Football League quarterbacks like Patrick Mahomes, Davis Webb, Case Keenum, and Baker Mayfield. However, the Trojans reportedly did not initially grant Kingsbury permission to interview with either club. Wilks lasted one season with the Cardinals after replacing Bruce Arians. Their objective this offseason was simple: find No. 10 overall pick Josh Rosen a coach who can develop him. 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.

"I was thankful for the opportunity to meet with Green Bay; it always gives you greater insight into another organization of how they do things", he said.

During his eight seasons in Lubbock, Kingsbury went 35-40, leading to his firing following Texas Tech's season.

His primary task in Arizona will be to develop Rosen.


The Cardinals have missed the playoffs in three straight seasons.

Here's the deal: Kingsbury has a small buy-out in his contract as USC's offensive coordinator. Even David Johnson struggled in the Cardinals' offense. Both of their futures are now tied together.

The Packers have chosen to make Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur their next head coach, and it's unclear how committed McDaniels was to being considered for that job.

Kingsbury began his coaching career as an offensive quality control coach in Houston and became the Cougars' OC in 2009 under Kevin Sumlin.
