Kliff Kingsbury withdraws from consideration for NFL OC position, per report
Kliff Kingsbury was expected to become the new offensive coordinator for the Las Vegas Raiders. Multiple reports earlier this week suggested as much.
On Saturday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Kingsbury has withdrawn his name from consideration for the job.

It’s not immediately clear what the next move is for Kingsbury. Speculation on social media linked him to the Washington Commanders — a job that UCLA’s Chip Kelly has also been mentioned for.
After one year in L.A. as a senior offensive analyst for Lincoln Riley at USC, it seems likely Kingsbury will be moving on.
“He’s able to give a bunch of different ideas, things that worked in the pros, things that worked in college,” quarterback Caleb Williams said of Kingsbury’s impact on the Trojans. ”He’s a great coach to have in your QB room because he’s seen it done on the highest level. He’s seen it done on our level with many different players that, you see now, they went first pick or they won (the) Heisman. Patrick Mahomes. He’s been with a bunch of different guys like that, Kyler (Murray) when he was in the pros.”
The former Red Raider was last in the NFL as the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. In four seasons with the franchise, Kingsbury went 28-37-1. His offenses ranked top-10 in the NFL in yardage twice, and they ranked top-16 in points each of his first three seasons.
