Former Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury is not interested in any current offensive coordinator positions in the NFL, according to’s Peter Schrager.

Schrager reported that Kingsbury has been contacted for multiple vacant offensive coordinator positions but purchased a one-way ticket to Thailand and is not interested at the moment.

“Kliff Kingsbury is in Thailand right now and bought a one-way ticket to Thailand,” Schrager said Saturday.

“He has already been contacted by several teams about whether he wants to interview for a job and said, ‘No, I’m good.’ He’s being paid five years guaranteed by the Cardinals, that check hits every two weeks. He will take his time if he wants to return to football, but for now, has told all teams he’s not interested in returning at the moment.”

Arizona is on the hunt for a new general manager and coach after Kingsbury was fired following the 4-13 record in his fourth season at the helm. This put his overall record at 28-37-1 over his tenure in Arizona

Kingsbury has been linked to the offensive coordinator job in Los Angeles with the Rams and Sean McVay as well as with Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots, Schrager said.

The Cardinals have interviewed San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans and requested to interview former New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton and Steelers linebacker coach Brian Flores.

The team is also reportedly interviewing current defensive coordinator Vance Joseph for the job as well.
