University of Southern California offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury has reportedly been granted permission to interview with the Arizona Cardinals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. NFL FOX's Jay Glazer tweeted Monday afternoon that the ex-Texas Tech head coach is in fact interviewing for NFL head coaching jobs despite USC denying him permission to do so. ESPN's Adam Schefter told ABC15 sports director Craig Fouhy that Kingsbury, Gase and Taylor are the three candidates to watch closely. After it emerged that Kingsbury was being prevented from interviewing by USC over the weekend, the possibility that Kingsbury could pay his contract buyout and resign was raised.

It was reported earlier that the Jets had interest in interviewing Kingsbury as a possible replacement for Todd Bowles.

Kingsbury was sacked at Texas Tech on November 25. They plan to hire the Tennessee Titan's former offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur as their new head coach, leaving McDaniels with no leads.

After the tribute, Hogan got choked up and then a classic "let me tell ya something Mean Gene" promo. WWE confirmed that Hogan will be present at Monday's RAW to talk about the late Mean Gene Okerlund .

That is, of course, if he stays at USC.

Kingsbury has coached quarterbacks with National Football League experience during his time in college, including Case Keenum and Johnny Manziel as an assistant coach with Houston and Texas A&M. Houston opted for a different former Texas Tech coach in West Virginia's Dana Holgorsen after Kingsbury reportedly turned down a "lucrative offer".

At Texas Tech, Kingsbury coached Patrick Mahomes and briefly coached Baker Mayfield before the latter transferred to Oklahoma to end his college career.
