Kingsbury’s offseason has been quiet and uneventful. Kingsbury was fired after the Cardinals finished the 2022 season 4-13. Kingsbury left the NFL with a 28-37-1 record.
Kingsbury received a lot of criticism for his coaching in 2022. Arizona underachieved after making the playoffs in 2021.
Kingsbury’s coaching career has been linked with notable quarterbacks. Quarterbacks like Patrick Mahomes, Johnny Manziel, and Kyler Murray. Mahomes is arguably the best quarterback in the NFL and Murray was the number one draft pick in 2019.
Kingsbury has the opportunity to work with Heisman trophy winner Caleb Williams. Williams shined with Lincoln Riley. Williams finished the season with 4,537 passing yards, threw 42 touchdowns and 5 interceptions.
The Trojan’s offense ranked third in 2022. USC’s offense averaged 506.6 yards per game and scored 41.1 points per game.
USC went 11-2 in 2022 and finished first in the Pac-12. Riley wants to improve the team. A source connected to the hiring told ESPN, “He’s going to attract elite talent in coaching and he wants to do everything he can to make his team better.”
