Less than one month after signing on to be USC's next offensive coordinator, Kliff Kinsgbury is back on the interview circuit.
Like his former Big 12 colleague Lincoln Riley, who signed a contract extension to remain Oklahoma's head coach on Tuesday, Kingsbury is a highly regarded offensive mind garnering professional attention, one who is also responsible for shaping two of the league's hottest quarterbacks. Kingsbury coached both Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield and Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes while at Tech.
Kingsbury's coaching career began at the University of Houston in 2008. He was hired as Texas Tech head coach in 2013 and held that position for six seasons. During his time there, Tech saw two seasons above .500 and went 1-2 in bowl games.
The 39-year-old Kingsbury has never coached in any capacity at the professional level.
