Arizona Cardinals: Kliff Kingsbury
The Cardinals obviously think that Kliff Kingsbury will be the next young and innovative head coach to take the NFL by storm. But that’s an optimistic point of view. Remember, Kingsbury didn’t leave Texas Tech for the NFL, he was fired there after going 35-40 and making just three bowl games in six seasons.
Kingsbury is also relying on an undersized rookie quarterback to make his offensive scheme work against NFL defenses. Obviously, the Cardinals are comfortable and confident with their choice of Kingsbury, but they’re taking a big risk, especially for a team that just fired a head coach after one season.
