Patriots OC Josh McDaniels staying in New England

He quickly agreed to a deal to become USC's new offensive coordinator, which seemed like a ideal fit as he would take over an offense in need of upgrading and, quite possibly, become the head coach in due time once the Trojans chose to move on from Clay Helton. On top of that, Kingsbury coached current Cleveland Browns starter - and NFL Rookie of the Year hopeful - Baker Mayfield for one year at Texas Tech before an acrimonious split prompted Mayfield to transfer to Oklahoma, where he also won a Heisman and became the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 draft.

McDaniels accepted the Colts' offer to become their head coach a year ago, even hiring assistant coaches, only to back out of the verbal deal the day before he was to be introduced by the franchise. Then in his senior year in 2002, Kingsbury threw for 5,017 yards and 45 touchdowns on the way to earning first-team All-Big 12 honors.

The Cardinals announced the hiring Tuesday after a long interview earlier in the day, saying Kingsbury had agreed to terms on a four-year contract with a team option for a fifth.

Kingsbury interviewed with the Jets on Monday, according to The Athletic.

Although Kingsbury's Red Raider teams struggled on the defensive end, he was widely pegged as the ideal candidate to improve a Trojan offense that underachieved in 2018.

Later that day, the actor released video in which he appeared as his House of Cards character Frank Underwood . Spacey and his lawyers declined to comment as they left the courthouse amid a crush of reporters.

He does, however, bring unquestioned knowledge of successful offenses and in working with young quarterbacks.

"I think the offensive coordinator will be somebody who can come in and mesh some of my ideas with maybe some traditional things that they've done in the National Football League, be a great leader of men, be able to handle the room, help me install different things". After a little over one month as USC OC, he will now be moving on to coach the Cards.

Fresno State offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Kalen DeBoer is another possible solution because of his ability to improve struggling offenses.

Over six seasons under Kingsbury, Texas Tech ranked just 50th, 109th, 114th, 120th, 52nd and 62nd nationally in defensive efficiency. Then you have Gase, who has spent the last three years in Miami with Ryan Tannehill, so going from a mediocre guy like Tannehill to an all-time great like Rodgers would obviously be a welcome change.
