Former Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury reportedly met with Clay Helton on Monday about the offensive coordinator’s position.
Kingsbury is a hot name after getting fired Sunday (unlike Helton) and could draw interest from NFL teams.
That means he might need to be paid $2-3 million, which would really hurt Lynn Swann.
More importantly, Kingsbury would have to ignore whatever red flags he hears through the coaching grapevine about Helton’s running of the program. Helton is also a lame duck and Kingsbury will get interest from teams that have coaches who are not on the hot seat.
Kingsbury would also want to decide who starts at quarterback, which might bother Helton because he wants JT Daniels to be the quarterback. Kingsbury might also want to know who the defensive coordinator will be too.
In other words, there are a lot of questions. And if Kingsbury does his due diligence, even more questions. So we’ll have to see where this progresses.
