USC Reportedly Wouldn’t Let The Jets Or Cardinals Interview OC Kliff Kingsbury

After Kliff Kingsbury was sacked as head coach at Texas Tech, he accepted a new job as offensive coordinator at USC.

The New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals would like to interview Kliff Kingsbury, but USC would like for them not to, Adam Schefter reports. Teams must request permission to interview college coaches under contract just as they would have to in the pros and they must respect their wishes or face possible revoked draft picks for "conduct detrimental" to the league. If permission is denied, the National Football League should respect the decision "as it would respect a similar decision from another National Football League club", according to the rules.

Sources said a ideal storm of the NFL's new enforcement of an old rule has led to the situation where the Jets and Cardinals can't talk to one of their head-coaching candidates. That comes about a month after Kingsbury joined USC as offensive coordinator following his dismissal as Texas Tech's head coach. He wasn't on the open market for long, as the Trojans scooped him up for their vacant offensive coordinator position.


However, there are some coaches that the Jets have not shown much interest in so far.

Earlier in the week, Kingsbury was named as one of the top candidates to fill Houston's coaching vacancy following the firing of Major Applewhite. He was a quarterback at Texas Tech and spent time as a QB with the Jets, New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints.
