Cardinals Head Coach Could ''Walk Away'' From Team This Offseason

According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury could ''walk away'' from the team this offseason.

Fowler said that sources close to the fourth-year head coach said Kingsbury could leave the spiraling franchise of his own will.

There is also a very strong possibility that the Cardinals' owner, Michael Bidwell, could step in and fire Kingsbury. The 43-year-old head coach holds an ugly 28-34-1 record as the Cardinals' coach.

Fowler's report went on to say that Kingsbury and quarterback Kyler Murray, who have been seen arguing with each other during games, have ''grown increasingly distant'' this season. 

Kingsbury reportedly also felt ''undermined'' by Bidwell's micromanaging of the roster and coaching staff. According to Fowler, a source close to Kingsbury said, ''He knows that it's not a situation that lends itself to him being happy and successful and at his best for the organization, which he wants to be. They won't let him. They won't let him be great.''

Prior to the start of the season, Kingsbury agreed to a five-year extension that would keep him in Arizona through the 2027 season. It's not exactly known how much money he is making, but there are some reports that say the head coach is raking in around $5.5 million this season.

It's an absolute mess of a situation in Arizona right now, and it appears more and more that we won't be seeing Kingsbury with the Cardinals after this season.
