Here is what Kliff Kingsbury said at his press conference today about USC:
“When I took the job at USC, I couldn’t be more thrilled to have that job. I thought that was an incredible opportunity with Coach Helton, Mr. Swann, that program, that tradition, but this is an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.”
That about sums it up.
UPDATED: Look what Cardinals president Michael Bidwill said about the process in hiring Kingsbury:
“Couple steps. We obviously were interested in him before he was available to be interviewed. He had to go through the process with USC. He resigned and then we started talking to him and got him out here.”
So Kingsbury actually resigned from USC on Sunday or Monday?
That means USC did not admit he quit. And it means Kingsbury could not get out of the McKay Center fast enough.
UPDATED II: A lot of this is semantics because the Cardinals obviously told Kingsbury they wanted to hire him before he went to Arizona. But it is interesting to see how everyone gives their side . . . except USC of course.
