He was let go by Texas Tech in late November, and in less than a month, took the offensive coordinator job at USC.The 39-year-old then received interest from NFL teams for interviews, which USC reportedly blocked before Kingsbury eventually took on interviews and ended up with the Cardinals.The first-time NFL head coach spoke with CBS Sports Network’s Jim Rome on the Jim Rome Show to speak on that whirlwind of a time. “It’s unfortunate, obviously,” he said of what happened with USC. “That was never my intention and I think the world of that university, I think the world of (USC head) coach (Todd) Helton, the job he’s gonna do there. I turned down a bunch of opportunities to be a Trojan and go to USC because of the great program and what I knew we could do there.“This came up and it was just one of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities I couldn’t pass up but I really enjoyed my time there and will be pulling for them moving forward.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling A video from late October made the rounds on social media Wednesday night featuring new Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury raving about Oklahoma quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray.Kingsbury, of course, was still Texas Tech’s head coach at the time and Murray was reportedly leaning towards his career in MLB.“I’d take him with the first pick in the draft if I could,” Kingsbury said of Murray, then doubling down on that statement. “I know he signed up to play baseball, but he is a dominant football player and I would take him with the first pick.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 15 Comments Share Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories
