What does Wikipedia know about Kliff Kingsbury that we don’t?
It has been reported that the Arizona Cardinals are interviewing former Texas Tech head coach and current USC offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury for the team’s head coaching vacancy. But does Wikipedia have the inside scoop on just how far along that process has gotten?
As seen on Kingsbury’s Wikipedia page on Tuesday, the site erroneously listed the 39-year-old as the current head coach of the Cardinals, despite the fact that the team was only set to interview him as of Tuesday and no reports have been made of a final decision.
“Kliff Timothy Kingsbury (born August 9, 1979) is an American football coach and former quarterback,” the first sentence of his page reads. “He currently serves as Head Coach for the Arizona Cardinals.”
Viewing the edit history of the page, it would appear as though someone has made multiple attempts to get this falsehood (or insider scoop?) onto the site. One edit from Tuesday is described this way in the edit history: “Removed error which had Kingsbury as Head Coach of the Arizona Cardinals.”
Evidently, the error has been put back.
Kingsbury reportedly interviewed with the New York Jets on Monday and, according to 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station‘s John Gambadoro, New York was “pushing hard” to make Kingsbury the team’s head coach.
