Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury is focused on the task at hand.
During his media coverage on Monday morning, Kingsbury was confronted with the news of former Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley’s departure for Los Angeles. When asked about his interest in opening work, he replied, “I don’t like that sort of thing.”
“We’re into the season, we’re 9-2, just not the topic I want to cover right now,” Kingsbury said on a Zoom call with reporters. He also added that his main focus is facing the Bears, who are on a 16-14 win over the Lions on Thanksgiving.
Following the announcement of Riley’s departure from Oklahoma, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Sooners are eyeing Kingsbury as a potential replacement. According to Schefter, Kingsbury has a year left on his contract with Arizona after this season.

Kingsbury said he was in his “movie room” all day Sunday, which means he was “inactive” so the report didn’t affect him “one bit”. He was watching a gme movie and casually said “The Queen of the South”.
