    That's cool and all but the guy just got fired as a head coach at a pretty middle of the road program that did not progress under his watch.

    No college decided to hire him as a head coach after he was fired, so he was forced to take a job as a coordinator at the collegiate level.

    That's a weird ass hire for a professional football team.

    It's almost like being a college coach at Texas tech and an NFL coach require different skill sets

    If he doesn't have any NFL coaching experience and failed at his only head coaching job in college, that's a weird hire, no?

    I didn't say it was a bad hire, I said it was a weird one. I have no idea how this will work out.

    Not really, considering what NFL franchises are currently looking for. The current model is hire someone seen as an offensive wonder kid and put an established person in charge of the defense. Matt lafleur just got hired with one year of bottom tier offensive play calling experience by the Packers to fit this same model. Kliff has proved himself as a better offensive mind than he has.

    There are a lot of coaches in college that have much better tenures than Kliff Kingsbury. I'm not bitching. I don't give a rat's ass. I think it's funny that somehow a shitty college head coach that didn't even have a 500 winning % at a P5 level school that's had prior recent success is somehow the hot name in NFL head coaching talks.

    Mike Leach literally won twice as many games as Kliff and had Tech fairly relevant for a long time.

    And the NFL has been studying leach for a long time. Just like they've been doing with kliff. Leach is a psycho that's way too off the reservation for an NFL team to hire

    Exactly. Mike leach is an amazing coach. After tech treated him the way they did they’re never gonna attract someone of his caliber again

    Honest question. What’s more appealing (looks aside) about kliff than Dana? Dana is probably an even better offensive mind and a much better HC

    In a QB and spread offense driven league, not hiring the guy who has Mahomes, Keenum, Baker, Manziel and Webb on his resume because he couldn't recruit enough talented defensive players to Lubbock, Texas would seem pretty dumb.

    My point is Kliff was below 500 at a school that's had decent success if the fairly recent past. That's it. Hell. He might be great. He'll probably kill it and make me look like an idiot because I don't get paid 4 million to analyze the best DT is a 3-4.

    Nothing wrong with the new line of thinking. But I think following the Mckay tread will blow up in teams faces (Specifically Green Bay).

    Oh definitely. Not all of these guys can pan out, just can't happen. Some will fail because the success of their prior offense was from factors mostly outside of their control, some will fail because they are fit to be coordinators and not head coaches, some will fail because they miss on 1 or multiple DC hires, etc

    No clue how it's going to play out but I kind of get the logic. He is kind a QB whisperer. For a team trying to break in and salvage a highly drafted, inexperienced QB, it's not the worst idea I've heard.

    IMO, winning should be priority #2 behind turning Rosen into a good QB for the next season or 2 for the Cardinals.
