Former Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury has been hired by the Washington Commanders after withdrawing from the Las Vegas Raiders’ position.

Kingsbury’s Cardinals run

In four seasons as Arizona’s coach, Kingsbury led the team to a 28-37-1 record with one postseason appearance.

After being fired by the Cardinals following a 4-13 2022 season, the offensive guru was hired by USC. He served as the Trojans’ senior offensive analyst and quarterbacks coach in 2023.

He was reportedly expected to be hired by the Raiders just three days ago but withdrew from the position. Las Vegas then decided to hire former Chicago Bears OC Luke Getsy.

A potiential reunion

He will now be a part of Dan Quinn’s staff and run the Commanders’ offense. A significant reason for Kingsbury’s choice could be because of a potiential reunion with former USC quarterback Caleb Williams.

Washington currently holds the No. 2 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, behind only the Chicago Bears.

If the Bears decide to stick with Justin Fields and not take Williams first overall, the Commanders will without a doubt look to reunite Kingsbury with his QB.

It will be interesting to see how aggressive Washington is in trading up with Chicago for the first overall selection.
