Kingsbury had been the coach of the Cardinals since 2019, amassing a record of 28-37-1.
He has coached his last game for the Cardinals.
Since his firing, the internet has responded, resulting in an array of responses.

One NFL fan, in particular, has responded humorously, re-igniting a video from the New York Jets.
Kingsbury will not be welcomed back to the Cardinals’ facility.
In a more serious approach, many NFL pundits have expressed their opinions on what Kingsbury’s next move should be.
Kliff Kingsbury was just fired in Arizona.
He should be the #Patriots number one target at offensive coordinator.
Kingsbury wasn't a great head coach – but he can call an offense. PLUS, he'll be paid by the #Cardinals through 2027.
Kingsbury can take Mac to the next level.

One suggestion for Kingsbury is for him to be the New England Patriots new offensive coordinator.
The Patriots certainly need a lot of help on offense, and quarterback Mac Jones is in serious need of a mentor.
Kingsbury’s track record with Patrick Mahomes at Texas Tech proceeds him and could be a big contributor in terms of Jones’ expected to rise in his third season.
Kyle Shanahan, Hard Knocks and Call of Duty were just too much for Kliff Kingsbury to overcome.

In another tweet that mocks Kingsbury, this pundit has suggested that he was unable to overcome obstacles such as in-division coach Kyle Shanahan, the dreaded Hard Knocks curse, and quarterback Kyler Murray having an unhealthy addiction to Call of Duty.
Whoever steps in as the next head coach of the Cardinals will certainly have their work cut out for them.
Murray will be coming back from injury, J.J. Watt just retired, and, although they have a fair amount of talent on both sides of the ball, the team has seemed disjointed for the past year.
