Kliff Kingsbury, the Cardinals’ new head coach, will debut his new podcast at 3 p.m. Tuesday.
The Kingbury Chronicle Podcast can be watched live at 3 p.m. at azcardinals.com/video/live or on the Cardinals Facebook page. An archived version of the podcast can be found on the Cardinals’ YouTube channel. The podcast will air every other Tuesday at 3 p.m.
The podcast will be hosted by Cardinals reporter and producer Lisa Matthews and Cardinals broadcaster Paul Calvisi.
Kingsbury, 39, was hired in January with the hope he would ignite the team’s lackluster offense and turn Josh Rosen NFL quarterback. His hire was part of a trend of NFL teams hiring young, offensive minds in the model of Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay, 33.
McVay accomplished a task similar to what Kingsbury will be faced with, turning a 4-12 Rams team into a playoff team with second-year quarterback Jared Goff into the NFC West Champion in his first year. In his second year, McVay’s Rams won the division again and reached the Super Bowl, where they lost to the New England Patriots Sunday.
In 2019, Kingsbury inherits a second-year quarterback in Rosen and a team with an NFL-worst 3-13 record in 2018.
Kingsbury was fired after compiling a 35-40 record in six seasons at Texas Tech and, in December, was hired as offensive coordinator at USC. When USC wouldn’t allow him to talk to NFL teams, Kingsbury resigned and was interviewed by the New York Jets and Cardinals.
The Cardinals fired Steve Wilks at the end of the 2018 season after one year as head coach.
