The Arizona Cardinals fired their head coach Kliff Kingsbury after the 2022 NFL season.
Although the Cardinals have interviewed their fair share of head coaching candidates, the team has made a major announcement concerning their final decision.
Arizona Cardinals do not plan to hire a head coach until after Super Bowl LVII next week.

According to Adam Schefter, despite conducting numerous interviews, the team will wait until after the Super Bowl to announce a new head coach.
This could be for a myriad of reasons.
One of those reasons could be because their main coaching candidate might still be coaching.
Eric Bieniemy is the Kansas City Chiefs’ offensive coordinator and has been in talks for many different head coaching gigs.
Could Arizona sway him to coach there?
He has been a member of the Chiefs staff for ten years and has been instrumental in the development of Patrick Mahomes.
The Cardinals signed Kyler Murray to a massive contract, but he hasn’t quite lived up to the hype, at least, in 2022.
Granted, Murray was injured for part of the season, but he will look to make massive strides next year.
If he interviews, Bieniemy would be a fantastic fit within the Cardinals organization.
He has experience working with superstar talent, and would likely be able to help Murray succeed in the league, both as a rusher and a passer.
Whoever the Cardinals move forward with will at least have Murray to work with on offense, even though much of the rest of their positions are up for grabs.
