Former Cardinals Coach Interviews for Raiders OC Position

Former Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury is interviewing for the Las Vegas Raiders' open OC job.

ARIZONA -- The interviews keep coming for former Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

After previously interviewing with the Chicago Bears, Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles, Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer is reporting the Las Vegas Raiders hosted Kingsbury today for their vacant offensive coordinator opening.

"The Raiders interviewed USC assistant Kliff Kingsbury for their offensive coordinator job today in Vegas, per sources. They had ex-Bears OC Luke Getsy in earlier in the day, and ex-Browns OC Alex Van Pelt in yesterday," Breer wrote on Twitter/X.

Kingsbury was a hot name to watch this offseason with plenty of coaching changes in the NFL. Though his 28-37-1 record as Cardinals coach (and him being fired from Texas Tech before landing in Arizona) left much to be desired, Kingsbury is still considered to be a young offensive mind that can potentially redeem himself as an exclusive offensive play-caller.

Kingsbury spent the past season at USC on Lincoln Riley's staff as an offensive analyst and quarterbacks coach for Caleb Williams, who is expected to be the No. 1 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Kingsbury also has experience working with other big names such as Patrick Mahomes, Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray. 

The Raiders announced they would be retaining Antonio Pierce as their head coach after an impressive stint with the "interim" label following the dismissal of Josh McDaniels.
