While Kliff Kingsbury was fired after the Cardinals finished the 2022 season 4-13, teams were still interested in having Kingsbury join their staff as an offensive assistant in 2023.
But for now at least, that interest is not mutual.
According to FOX Sports’ Peter Schrager, Kingsbury was approached by several teams about interviewing for the offensive coordinator job. But Kingsbury has bought a one-way ticket to Thailand and is not interested in interviewing at the moment.
As previously reported by PFT, Kingsbury is guaranteed a contract through the 2026 season with an option for 2027.
There are several teams that have an opening in the OC, such as the Jets, Patriots, Commanders, Titans, and Rams – as well as teams that will have an entirely new starting staff. Kingsbury has ties to the Patriots as he was a former New England backup quarterback. He is also a good friend of Rams coach Sean McVay.
Kingsbury compiled a 28-37-1 record in four seasons as Arizona’s head coach and offensive caller. In 2020 and 2021, the Cardinals finished in the top 10 in total yards. But the Cardinals have never made it into the top 10 in scoring, with their highest ranking being #11 in 2021.
