USC has reportedly rejected requests from the New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals to interview Kingsbury for their head coaching jobs, but, according to Florio, Kingsbury could potentially quit his job at USC - which he's only held for a month - and pursue opportunities in the NFL. It is not immediately clear whether Kingsbury resigned from USC or if the school changed its stance on him interviewing with National Football League teams.
Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, there is strong mutual interest between Kingsbury and the Cardinals. In November, the Red Raiders announced that Kingsbury wouldn't be brought back in 2019, and he subsequently signed with USC to be their offensive coordinator on December 5.
USC was initially blocking Kingsbury from interviewing. FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman reported the Jets met with Kingsbury on Monday.
US Economy Adds More Jobs Than Expected In December
The industry added 38,000 jobs in December, bringing the annual total to 280,000, a 12 percent gain from 2017?s 250,000. As a result, these figures are the lowest since 1969, giving more and more people confidence they can find a job.
The New England Patriots are getting used to preparing for the playoffs in January, while also bracing for the departure of their offensive coordinator, Josh McDaniels.
Kingsbury was sacked at Texas Tech after the Red Raiders finished the season on a five-game losing streak. He was a quarterback at Texas Tech and spent time as a QB with the Jets, New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints.
According to NFL Network, Kingsbury is still employed by USC.
Last week, the Cardinals fired head coach Steve Wilks after his one and only season with the team.
