What Cardinals' hiring of Kliff Kingsbury as coach means for Seahawks

The Arizona Cardinals have hired Kliff Kingsbury as head coach.

Texas Tech fired Kingsbury in November after six seasons as head coach.

Utah State offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach David Yost is a potential candidate. The former Texas Tech coach's abrupt departure throws USC right back into turmoil, but Helton was graceful and conciliatory in a brief statement.

Cross one name off the potential Browns head coach list. "That's something I think is important to have that relationship with the quarterback that's what I've always done", Kingsbury said.

Noted college football reporter Bruce Feldman is reporting that the Cardinals' general manger Steve Keim is impressed with Kingsbury. His quick departure will leave the Trojans scrambling for a replacement. Kingsbury coached Patrick Mahomes, Johnny Manziel and, for a short time, Baker Mayfield in college so he knows something about working with young quarterbacks.

Kingsbury and Spavital were on staff together at Houston in the mid 2000's.

Since that season, Kingsbury has finished the year with a winning record just once (2015), and is 0-2 in Bowl games.

The Cardinals' record last year was their worst in 18 years and matched the worst since the franchise moved to the desert from St. Louis in 1988. Then you have Gase, who has spent the last three years in Miami with Ryan Tannehill, so going from a mediocre guy like Tannehill to an all-time great like Rodgers would obviously be a welcome change.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that Rhule interviewed with the Jets, and Baylor Athletic Director Mack Rhoades confirmed more than one team has interest in Rhule. To this point, the Browns have met with Gregg Williams, Freddie Kitchens, Jim Caldwell, Kevin Stefanski, Dan Campbell, Brian Flores, and Matt Eberflus. But that is a decision that will likely be made by someone other than their head coach, which would be just fine for Kingsbury.
