Would Ron Rivera be an upgrade over Kliff Kingsbury? If any Cardinals fans says no they might be smoking dope or some derivative there of. Ron Rivera is an accomplished Head Coach at the NFL level. He’s won 76 career games, has won coach of the year twice and has taken his team to the Super Bowl. Kliff Kingsbury has won three games.
Rivera is a prime candidate to end up at the helm of another team in 2020 so why not the Arizona Cardinals?
Kenny Sargent proposed one scenario on Tuesday.
It’s a little crazy but if the Cardinals want to win it makes total sense. Kliff is basically a glorified offensive coordinator anyway so why not put him in a better spot to succeed and let him do what he does best and teach Kyler Murray? While bringing in an experienced and well liked Head Coach with a winning pedigree to bring everything together. It’s called synergy.
For those who do think it’s crazy, how crazy does it sound that an NFL team would hire a college head coach with a losing record with no pro coaching experience?
We broke down the situation in a very spirited debate on Wednesday. Listen to the conversation below.
