Former NFL head coach Kliff Kingsbury has been very active recently, interviewing with several NFL teams for their vacant offensive coordinator position. It now sounds like he has finally found a landing spot, as he is expected to officially work out a deal with another West Coast team.

Kingsbury is of course best known for his stint as the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals from 2019-2022. In his time with the team, he recorded only one winning season, with an overall record of 29-37-1 as an NFL head coach.

Since then, he has returned to the college game, working with the USC Trojans as a senior offensive analyst. In his time with the team, he helped develop star quarterback Caleb Williams.

In recent months, it has seemed very clear that he wants to return to the NFL level, interviewing with the likes of the Philadelphia Eagles, the Chicago Bears, and the Las Vegas Raiders for an offensive coordinator job.

It seems like Las Vegas will be the team that does indeed bring in Kingsbury for that role. On Thursday, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo broke the news that Kingsbury and the Raiders are expected to complete a deal for him to become the new offensive coordinator.

While Kingsbury’s first stint in the NFL obviously didn’t go as he would have hoped, he has always had a great mind for offense that has been seen at every level.

Even when his team was struggling in Arizona, Kingsbury was able to get some solid play out of star quarterback Kyler Murray while the two were together.

Kingsbury will have a far different task on his hands in his new role in Las Vegas, as the team still has some questions that need to be answered at the quarterback position.

Will the team give Aidan O’Connell another chance as the starter next year? Could Jimmy Garoppolo receive another opportunity to get his job back next year? Or will the team look for another quarterback option in either free agency for the 2024 NFL Draft?

These questions will be answered in time. But at least Raiders fans now know who will be calling the plays for the team offensively next season.
