The Arizona Cardinals waited a year too long to fire HC Kliff Kingsbury.
Kingsbury had a losing record at Texas Tech with Patrick Mahomes as his quarterback, so his prospects as an NFL Head Coach weren’t exactly promising.
He failed to make the most of the talent he was given, and it might be awhile before he’s given another chance in the league.
So now, the Cardinals need to find the right guy to lead this new era, especially with all the rumors of discontent between Kyler Murray and the front office and DeAndre Hopkins’ potential departure.
That’s why Andy Reid endorses Mike Kafka to get the nod now:
Andy Reid said he endorsed Mike Kafka to Cardinals owner Michael Bidwell. "He’s a very intelligent, great human being,” Reid said. “The quarterback will love him. He’ll challenge him to be better than he even is now. But he’ll do a great job.'' Kafka worked for Reid in K.C.

Kafka worked for Reid in the Kansas City Chiefs and is currently serving as the New York Giants’ Offensive Coordinator, and working close with Brian Daboll on Daniel Jones’ development.
Reid believes Kafka could take Kyler Murray to a whole new level, challenging him and pushing him to become the best version of himself, and that’s just what the doctor ordered in Glendale.
Murray has drawn some criticism for his apparent lack of commitment to the game, often spending more time with video games than watching film and getting ready for Sunday’s clash.
The team still made a huge financial investment in him and made it clear that they want him to be their QB for the future, so hiring a QB’s coach would most definitely be a step in the right direction to turn the franchise around after such a complicated season.NEXT: NFL Insider Gives Latest Update On Cardinals HC Search
