Jets speak to Matt Rhule about coaching vacancy, report says

McDaniels said Tuesday "the book is closed" on head-coaching interviews, and now he's concentrated on the Patriots' upcoming divisional-round matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers. Kingsbury was sacked by Texas Tech on November 25 after seven seasons, including six as head coach, and was hired by USC to be its offensive coordinator on December 5.

USC was looking for his assistance to bolster a passing attack that finished ranked 48th in the nation, averaging 249.1 yards per game- 103.2 yards behind Kingsbury's squad in Lubbock.

Meanwhile, multiple outlets reported that Kingbury's Cardinals contract is for four years with a fifth-year option.

His coaching career began at the University of Houston as quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator from 2008-11, at one point working with Case Keenum.

There isn't just one answer. Not their offensive coordinator.

Still, Kingsbury does bring some offensive chops.

It is now safe to say Josh McDaniels will remain with the Patriots for one more season.

A long checklist of needs awaits whomever the new head coach shall be, which makes the hiring of an offensive coordinator just as important for the Jets.

In fact, the Cardinals may know even less about Kingsbury than they did about Wilks, who a year ago interviewed twice with Arizona before getting the job. Among the most notable are Kansas City Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes and the Cleveland Browns' Baker Mayfield. "I think he's demonstrated the ability to do a lot of different things at a high level, and he's got a great offensive mind".

Arizona's move is back to an offence-centred coach, a philosophy that worked well in the previous hire of Bruce Arians, who won 50 games in five seasons before retiring after the 2017 season. That Hollywood role seemed a good fit for the young, good-looking mastermind. He has to be able to do so much more than just scheme up a brilliant offense - something that Kingsbury hasn't proved he can do at the National Football League level, let's not forget.
