USC blocking Kingsbury from interviewing with Cards

Report: USC Denied Jets, Cardinals Permission to Interview Kliff Kingsbury

That according ESPN's Adam Schefter, who reports that the New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals have requested to interview Kingsbury only to have their advances rebuffed by USC to this point.

National Football League teams are interested in speaking to Kliff Kingsbury about head coaching vacancies, but thanks to National Football League enforcement of an old rule, they're not getting that opportunity right now. The new head coach will have to build QB Sam Darnold who was the Jets 3rd overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. "NFL clubs that fail to follow these protocols may be subject to disciplinary action for conduct detrimental to the league".

USC's refusal to release Kingsbury to interview has prevented the Jets and Cardinals from meeting with a candidate they would like to know more about.

Chargers hold off Jackson, Ravens in AFC wild card game
Jackson finished the game with 194 passing yards with two touchdowns, one interception and three fumbles, one of which was lost. The first four came in the first two quarters and ensured the Chargers would take a 12-0 lead into the locker room.

He had a losing record as a head coach for Texas Tech, but has had a top-five offense in five of the last nine seasons, no matter where he has been. The teams have thus far moved on to interview other candidates while waiting to see if USC acquiesces.

But USC apparently isn't interested in allowing Kingsbury to interview for the job. He previously served as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Houston and Texas A&M, where he worked under current Arizona Wildcats head coach Kevin Sumlin.

It's worth noting Kingsbury hasn't said anything publicly about field any offers and also has added "USC Trojans" to his Twitter profile.
