    Yeah sorry I meant Texas tech. But regardless he’s headed to Arizona as the HC. Which i still think is a mistake. There is plenty of other coaches in the college ranks that would’ve been great. Kingsbury isn’t one of those

    Failed at A&M? He actually did very well there as an offensive coordinator. Do you mean Texas Tech?

    The reason Kingsbury is such a hot commodity, in a single word, is POINTS. He certainly isn’t valued for his defensive prowess, although Texas Tech never did do well on that side of the ball. Is he worth a pro head coaching job? The Arizona Cardinals have answered yes, with a 4-year contract. Kliff will have to pay $150k to USC as per his buyout clause, but with the dough he’ll be swimming in, he can even afford to send Swann a couple of Cardinal season tickets, just to smooth-out the rough edges.

    I’m wondering why he’s such a hot commodity. He failed badly at A&M. Why would anyone want that at the pro level. As a coordinator maybe but not a head coach

    The National Champion Trophy looks a lot like “The Leg” trophy from A Christmas Story.

    Reports say that recently hired USC offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury is indeed interviewing for some of the vacant NFL head coaching jobs. This means he has either resigned from USC, or that Lynn Swann has relented and allowed the interviews to take place. If many angry Seattle fans had anything to say about it, one of those vacant HC jobs would be with the Seahawks.
