USC Won't Let Kliff Kingsbury Talk To The Jets Or Cardinals

Jets’ coaching candidates unlikely to energize fanbase

Kliff Kingsbury looks to be staying at USC after the school refused to let its new offensive coordinator interview for head coaching positions with the Jets and Cardinals, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He joined the team in December after being fired by Texas Tech following a 5-7 season.

At last month's NFL owners meetings in Dallas, league officials informed team executives that they would now be enforcing the old rule that requires team executives to request permission from college athletic directors to interview college coaches.

USC is not too keen on the idea of new offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury heading to the NFL. Bypassing permission, a source told ESPN, would be considered "conduct detrimental" to the National Football League and teams violating the ruling could lose draft picks. Kingsbury, 39, replaces Tee Martin at USC, who was dismissed by coach Clay Helton in November.

Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson reported earlier in the week that the Cardinals and Jets were looking to interview Kingsbury. Robinson said on this week's Yahoo Sports NFL podcast that Kingsbury had a dialogue with multiple NFL teams after he was sacked.

The NFL's new enforcement has made interviewing college coaches this offseason more challenging, certainly for teams that are interested in candidates such as Kingsbury.

In an interview with ESPN, Kingsbury opened up on being fired from Texas Tech and why he accepted the job at USC. In six seasons in Lubbock, Kingsbury, a former quarterback at Texas Tech, was 35-40 with only two winning seasons.
