After a season that ended with a significant knee injury to franchise quarterback Kyler Murray and a 4-13 record, the Arizona Cardinals fired coach Kliff Kingsbury last month.
Following a brief time out of the spotlight, Kingsbury’s name is being brought up again for another NFL job.
According to ESPN’s Dan Graziano, Kingsbury is in Houston to meet with the Texans. It’s unclear as to which job the sides are discussing, but given Kingsbury’s history it could be the offensive coordinator position.
Before his time with the Cardinals, Kingsbury worked as an offensive coordinator at the college level at Texas A&M and his alma mater Texas Tech.
Kingsbury would eventually become the head coach of the Red Raiders, where he oversaw the development of Patrick Mahomes.
The Texans have the No. 2 pick in this year’s draft, and are likely to take a quarterback with that pick. Adding a coordinator with Kingsbury’s track record could be a smart move to help that new franchise centerpiece get acclimated to the NFL game.
Kingsbury’s time in Arizona may not have ended well, but it appears that he is well on his way to a fresh start in a state he’s very familiar with.
