The news of an impending interview with the Cardinals broke on January 1, but reports surfaced that USC was denying Kingsbury from interviewing.

New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels completed his interview with the Green Bay Packers on Friday and remains "very much in play" for the team's head coaching job, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He has previous head coaching experience, a long history of coordinating productive and creative offenses, over a decade of overseeing future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady and enormous respect from many in New England, including Bill Belichick.

Update, 3:15 p.m., January 7: Kliff Kingsbury's time at USC might have ended before it even began.

According to ESPN, which cited league sources, Kingsbury shares a "strong mutual interest" with the Cardinals and has also drawn attention from the Jets.

Kingsbury was sacked at Texas Tech on November 25.

In light of being blocked from interviewing, it appears Kingsbury is resigning as USC's offensive coordinator, per Fox Sports' Jay Glazer, a position he accepted over a month ago. A USC spokesperson told multiple outlets that Kingsbury was still listed in the school's directory, though he's not listed on USC's football site.

Kingsbury is in-demand after six years as the boss at Texas Tech, where he had an overall record of 35-40.

At Texas Tech, Kingsbury coached Patrick Mahomes and briefly coached Baker Mayfield before the latter transferred to Oklahoma to end his college career.
