Farewell to the Arizona desert

Less than a year after signing an extension that would keep him with the Cardinals until 2027, management decided to terminate Kliff Kingsbury’s contract. In four seasons with the Cards, the former Texas Tech head coach went 28-37-1 in the regular season and 0-1 in the playoffs.

Kingsbury’s stint in Arizona was not a complete failure, as he had the third-most wins as a head coach since the team moved to the southern state. With 28 wins, he trails Bruce Arians and Ken Whisehunt, who had 49 and 45 respectively.
