Kliff Kingsbury is on an indefinite exotic holiday.
Kingsbury was fired by the Cardinals after the team finished a disappointing 4-13 this past season. On Fox Sports’ NFL pregame show on Saturday, Peter Schrager reported that Kingsbury has no intention of coaching in 2023.
“One of the guys who’s being mentioned as an offensive coordinator candidate for everywhere from New England to L.A. [the Rams] is recently-fired Kliff Kingsbury. I don’t know if this is breaking news or not — Kliff Kingsbury’s in Thailand right now. He bought a one-way ticket to Thailand,” Schrager said.
“He’s already been contacted by several different teams about whether he’d like to interview for a job. He said, ‘No, I’m good.’ He’s being paid five years guaranteed by the Arizona Cardinals. That check hits every two weeks. He’s going to take his time before he figures out if he wants to come back to football. For now he has told all teams that he is not interested in returning at the moment.”
Peter Schrager says on FOX former Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury bought a one-way ticket to Thailand and is telling any interested teams he's not interested in returning to at the moment.
