Kliff Kingsbury might be coronated a genius in the NFL and worshipped for a month by USC fans, but he is not earning that reputation with his early moves in Arizona.
First, Kingsbury interviewed Steve Sarkisian for the offensive coordinator’s job. Now he has interviewed Hue Jackson.
The irony of course is all three were offensive coordinators at USC. Maybe it doesn’t matter who Kingsbury hires because he will actually call plays.
But Jackson’s coming off a toxic situation in Cleveland and why you would want him around for your first job is beyond me. Maybe Kingsbury likes him because they have both been criticized by Baker Mayfield.
Whatever the reason, Kingsbury is really trying to bring in some retreads, which is hardly exciting if you are a Cardinals fan. If this is what he would have done if USC made him head coach, good riddance.
