The Arizona Cardinals fired head coach Kliff Kingsbury on Monday, and many fans were happy, but one player who wanted Kingsbury back was Cardinals receiver Marquise Brown.
“I (expletive) with Kliff,” Brown said Monday on his Twitch channel alongside WR Antoine Wesley. “I wanted Kliff to get another chance with a healthy group. But at the end of the day, it’s a business. I know that boy Kliff is (going to be fine).”
Kingsbury was fired after a 4-13 season. Just a year ago, Kingsbury signed a contract extension; he will still get paid until 2027.
In Brown’s first season with the Cardinals, he caught 67 balls for 709 yards and three touchdowns in 12 games. The Cardinals dealt with many injuries this season, and Brown spent some time on injured reserve himself. In addition, the receiver missed time with a foot injury.
Brown will enter the final year of his rookie contract; so far in his NFL career, he has caught 262 passes for 3,070 yards and 24 touchdowns. He is one of the fasted receivers in the NFL.
