After removing himself from the running to be the Las Vegas Raiders’ offensive coordinator over the weekend, Kliff Kingsbury will take the same post with the Washington Commanders, per an ESPN report Sunday.
Reports had surfaced Saturday that Kingsbury, 44, would join new head coach Dan Quinn in Washington after news broke that Kingsbury wouldn’t be part of the staff of Raiders head coach Antonio Pierce.
The Commanders likely will grab a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, and Southern California’s Caleb Williams could be that selection.
Kingsbury worked with Williams while spending the 2023 season with the Trojans as a senior offensive analyst. Kingsbury posted a 28-37-1 record before he was fired at the end of his fourth season in 2022 as the Arizona Cardinals’ head coach.
A former NFL quarterback, Kingsbury worked at the University of Houston and Texas A&M as an offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach before taking the head coaching job at Texas Tech, where he overlapped with Patrick Mahomes.
Kingsbury’s best season with the Cardinals came in 2021, when they ranked 11th in scoring offense but watched a 10-2 start end in an 11-6 regular-season record and a blowout loss in the wild-card round.
Kingsbury also interviewed with the Chicago Bears for their offensive coordinator post before Chicago hired former Seattle Seahawks OC Shane Waldron.
