The former Texas Tech coach was ready to sign a deal with the University Of Houston Clear Lake but ended up getting picked by The NFL.
As per many sources, Kingsbury interviewed with the New York Jets on Monday and then went on to sit with Arizona Cardinals' management on Tuesday, so what exactly happened that got him to sign up with Arizona Cardinals within 24 hours?
Reportedly, Arizona Cardinals' management was more than happy to have the former college coach on their pocket, it was reportedly willing to pay him more and was impressed with the way he handles the team to play an overall offensive game. Further, the details about his salary along with contract tenure would be addressed after his official integration to the team.
Kingsbury was a former Texas Tech Quarterback. His prolific passing attacks brought him attention in coaching ranks. He also trained Patrick Mahomes, who is considered as Kansas City's best quarterbacks and the front- runner for 5,097 yards and 50 touchdowns in this season.
In Arizona, the task is to revive an offense which has ranked last (241.6 yards per game) in total, to pass (157.7 yards per game) and to score (14.1 points per game). The Cardinals chose Josh Rosen with the No quarterback. Ten picks in 2018 overall, but the rooky faced constant stress with an 11:14 touchdown-to-interception ratio, completing just 55,2 percent of his passes.
It will be a fun season to watch and we would soon see if Kingsbury would be able to take Cardinals to the place where he is expected to take it, with a poor pick that he has.
