Kliff Kingsbury is interviewing with National Football League teams after all

08 January 2019

USC initially blocked Kinsbury from taking such interviews, but that is apparently no longer the case.

The saga of Kliff Kingsbury continues to evolve.

So, barring an unforeseen change - which, given McDaniels' last-second dumping of the Indianapolis Colts last winter, isn't out of the question - it appears he will be remaining with the Patriots for at least one more season.

On Saturday, ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio reported Kingsbury might resign from USC in order to explore National Football League options, but on Monday, Rapoport said Kingsbury is still employed at USC.

Josh McDaniels says he intends to stay with Patriots

Kingsbury is reportedly a "serious candidate" for the Cardinals' vacancy, according to team sideline reporter Paul Calvisi. He's already interviewed with the Packers and turned down a request from the Cincinnati Bengals. They plan to hire the Tennessee Titan's former offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur as their new head coach, leaving McDaniels with no leads.

Since then, his name has been mentioned in multiple coaching hirings. He has previous head coaching experience, a long history of coordinating productive and creative offenses, over a decade of overseeing future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady and enormous respect from many in New England, including Bill Belichick. In six seasons as the Red Raiders head coach, Kingsbury had just two winning seasons and never finished with a winning record in Big 12 conference games.

In an interview with ESPN, Kingsbury opened up on being fired from Texas Tech and why he accepted the job at USC.
