Arizona Cardinals Sean Kugler

The Arizona Cardinals seem to be falling apart at the seams after their latest loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night. Their on-field struggles, and a reported incident prior to Monday’s game, have resulted in one Cardinals coach losing his job on Tuesday.

According to Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic, Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said that he has relieved offensive line coach Sean Kugler of his duties following an incident in Mexico City.

It’s unclear at this point exactly what Kugler did to be fired, but Kingsbury revealed that it was serious enough for him to be removed from the team prior to Monday’s game.

“We relieved him of his duties, and he was set home Monday morning prior to the game,” Kingsbury told McManaman. “It’s challenging anytime you make a staff change in that type of manner.”

Kugler joined the Cardinals organization in 2019 and was seemingly a respected member of the coaching staff, so it is certainly shocking to hear about his removal from his position. The major in-season change has a lot of people around the NFL talking.

This is particularly interesting for NFL fans considering the Cardinals are currently involved with HBO’s Hark Knocks In Season. Many are curious whether or not this situation will be covered on the show.

It obviously wasn’t intentional by HBO, but they appear to have made an excellent decision on which team would be covered considering how much of a train wreck their season has become.

The Arizona Cardinals currently sit at just 4-7 on the season and are looking at a tough test in Week 12 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
