Cardinals Head Coach Partying at Kentucky Derby with Tom Brady

New Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury was pictured joining Tom Brady's famous Kentucky Derby party group this weekend.

Joining Brady and Kingsbury was Browns Quarterback Baker Mayfield plus several current and former New England Patriots teammates like Jacoby Brissett, Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman.

Kingsbury had previously been spotted in February at the Waste Management Phoenix Open's Birds Nest concert series.

Kingsbury has publicly bristled at the idea of being football's most eligible bachelor but there's no doubt the Cardinals head coach lives a much different lifestyle from virtually every other NFL head coach.

How many other head coaches would be seen at two of the country's biggest sports related parties or pictured socializing with players from other NFL teams?

Brady and Kingsbury are former teammates and have actually been spotted partying before, back in 2014 at the Preakness Stakes which makes the Kentucky Derby party scene look like amateur hour.

How do Cardinals players feel about their coach's partying habits? Does it project a position of authority or does it make Kliff Kingsbury feel more like a teammate? What happens if a Cardinals player challenges Kingsbury on his partying? Does it set the wrong tone from the top for the rest of the team?

There's obviously nothing wrong with Kingsbury enjoying his life however he wants but it is different by NFL head coach standards and different in the NFL often invites scrutiny.
