Kliff Kingsbury may walk away from USC

Kliff Kingsbury may walk away from USC Lynn Swann has placed Kliff Kingsbury in check. Kingsbury may soon put Swann in checkmate. With Swann, the Athletic Director at USC, blocking Kingsbury from interviewing for head-coaching vacancies with the Jets and Cardinals, Kingsbury may simply resign his position as Trojans offensive coordinator and move on. Per multiple sources, Kingsbury’s contract has a very low buyout. But the buyout never came up because the NFL teams, honoring the strong mandate issued at last month’s ownership meeting, contacted Swann and requested permission to interview Kingsbury. Swann said no, and that was the end of it.

The Arizona Cardinals hired former Texas Tech head coach (and briefly, USC offensive coordinator) Kliff Kingsbury earlier this week. His offensive resume is impressive, as well as the quarterbacks he’s coached: Case Keenum, Johnny Manziel, Baker Mayfield, and Patrick Mahomes.

He’ll face one of those guys, Mayfield, when his team plays the Cleveland Browns in 2019 — and things could get pretty interesting when that happens. NFL schedules don’t come out until April so we don’t know the exact date of this game just yet.

Let’s just say Mayfield and Kingsbury’s relationship didn’t exactly end on good terms.

In 2013, Mayfield walked on at Texas Tech, and earned the starting job in Tech’s season opener. The Red Raiders beat SMU 41-23 and then went on to win their next four games. On Oct. 5, Mayfield was 5-0 and had thrown almost 1,500 yards when he suffered a leg injury against Kansas.

Kliff Kingsbury is interviewing with NFL teams after all

Kliff Kingsbury is interviewing with NFL teams after all Kliff Kingsbury was hired by USC on Dec. 5. USC’s stance regarding Kliff Kingsbury’s availability to NFL teams has apparently shifted. According to multiple reports, Kingsbury is able to interview with teams like the Arizona Cardinals and New York Jets. Kliff Kingsbury is expected to begin interviewing for NFL HC jobs, as @JayGlazer reported, after USC initially blocked him from doing so. Cardinals and Jets wanted to talk to him, and Kingsbury is square in the HC mix.

Baker Mayfield opened up about why he hates his former Texas Tech coach, Kliff Kingsbury , so much -- essentially saying the guy kicked him to the He didn't include Baker in the meetings." But, Mayfield says what REALLY pissed him off was when Texas Tech officials told him they didn't have a

Then, Kingsbury had to make do without him. The Red Raiders went 2-5 with five straight losses to close out the season. Mayfield came back In November, but has stated that after his injury, he didn’t have much communication with Kingsbury.

“When I got hurt, there was no communication between me and my coach,” Mayfield told ESPN. “When I got healthy, I didn’t know why I wasn’t playing right away. At that time, we were losing a couple games in a row. I was still clueless as to why I wasn’t playing. That was really frustrating for me because I started the first five games and we won. So, I just didn’t really know exactly what he was thinking or what the situation was.”

December of that same year, Mayfield announced he was transferring after stating Texas Tech hadn’t offered him a scholarship for the spring semester. Kingsbury denied that claim.

Report: Kliff Kingsbury meets with Jets to discuss head coaching job It appears that USC has decided to allow Kliff Kingsbury to interview for NFL head coaching jobs, and the former Texas Tech coach reportedly had his first on Monday.

“I know a lot has come from Baker’s side, but I loved coaching him, loved the chip on his shoulder, cheered for him in every game except one,” Kingsbury said in July 2016. “It’s been fun to see the success he’s had.”

He transferred to Oklahoma, but was held up by Tech:

Mayfield ended up not being able to play at the rival Big 12 school right away:

There are two relevant rules to know here. One is the NCAA’s, and one is the Big 12’s. The NCAA’s says that players who transfer, if they haven’t already graduated, must sit out a year before returning to game action. That “academic year in residence” is a redshirt season, so players get an extra season tacked on at the end of their careers.

But the Big 12 has a rule that if players transfer within the conference, they lose that year of eligibility, in addition to having to sit out the season. That loss of eligibility could be waived by the player’s former school, but Tech denied Mayfield’s request to do that — and also, for a while, to let Oklahoma put Mayfield on scholarship.

Once Tech relented on that point, the NCAA let Oklahoma have an extra scholarship slot for Mayfield as he sat out 2014.

Eventually, Mayfield went on to earn the starting job at OU for two seasons, and he flourished, winning the Heisman Trophy in 2017.

Mayfield faced Kingsbury’s Tech team in 2016, in a game that set NCAA record books on fire.

Oklahoma won 66-59 over TTU, and with Mahomes leading Tech’s offense their teams set the all-time Division I single-game yardage record with 1,708.

It wasn’t all friendly for Mayfield in Lubbock, though. They reportedly chanted “F*** you, Baker!” at him during the game, and these were seen in the student section:

“You’d like to stay above that,” Kingsbury said of the chants directed at Baker. “Obviously emotions come into play, and we love the charged atmosphere, but obviously it’s not what you want to be portraying for our university, in that stadium, for our program.”

In 2017, Mayfield’s Sooners beat Tech 49-27. The two haven’t seen too much of each other, but it looks like the two are friendly when they do:

Mayfield hasn’t said too much about Kingsbury in his NFL days. But he has had a notable beef with another former coach, Hue Jackson.

Mayfield was drafted No. 1 overall by the Cleveland Browns, and led them to a 7-9 season his rookie year after earning the starting job in Week 3. Jackson was fired by the Browns on Oct. 29, and shortly thereafter, he landed a gig on the Cincinnati Bengals coaching staff. Let’s just say Mayfield didn’t think too highly of this. When the Browns faced the Bengals in in November, Mayfield didn’t exactly warmly embrace his former head coach:

And after the Browns’ win, Mayfield was asked about the interaction between the two:

“Didn’t feel like talking to him,” Mayfield told reporters. “He was here trying to tell us to play for him. Then he goes to a team we play twice a year. That’s how I feel. We have people we believe in calling the plays now.”

When the Browns beat the Bengals again in December, Mayfield had this epic stare down of Jackson:

The NFL fined Mayfield $10,026 for unsportsmanlike conduct for this gesture:

Mayfield and now permanent Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens played it coy when asked about it:

“He came over and he simply said, ‘Great play call,’’ Kitchens joked. “That’s something in our room that’s an inside deal in our room that’s going to stay in our room. It’s not a big deal.’’

Mayfield, when asked about the gesture on Wednesday, said ‘Oh well, I didn’t so…’’ and trailed off.

“I honestly couldn’t tell you. I don’t know,’’ he said. “We have a lot of stuff within our locker room, within what we have going on in the offense, a lot of inside jokes. Who knows what it was?”

So you don’t know what I’m referring to?

“No, I try and stay off social media, so everything trending that you’re talking about ... “
