Packers pass on Josh McDaniels


The saga of Kliff Kingsbury continues to evolve.

According to The Athletic's Bruce Feldman, the Jets interviewed Kingsbury on Monday regarding their head coaching position. Todd Bowles was sacked by NY after its regular-season finale, while Arizona let Steve Wilks go one day later on Black Monday.

McDaniels was very close to becoming the Indianapolis Colts head coach last offseason but he made a decision to stay with the Patriots.

The Kliff Kingsbury era at USC is off to a freaky start, and it could be over before the new offensive coordinator even coaches a game with the Trojans.

Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson reported last week that the Cardinals and Jets would be interested in interviewing with Kingsbury. The other interviewees were Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, Cowboys defensive backs coach Kris Richard, former Dolphins head coach Adam Gase and former Packers head coach Mike McCarthy. Not doing so could result in the league docking draft picks from teams.

Earlier in the week, Kingsbury was named as one of the top candidates to fill Houston's coaching vacancy following the firing of Major Applewhite. A former quarterback at Texas Tech, he was 35-40 with only two winning seasons over six years with the Red Raiders.

The 39-year-old Kingsbury was most recently the head coach of Texas Tech, but was sacked after leading the team to a 5-7 record in 2018.

In an interview with ESPN, Kingsbury opened up on being fired from Texas Tech and why he accepted the job at USC.
