The Arizona Cardinals reportedly fired their offensive line coach/running game coordinator for groping a woman in Mexico City, just hours before the team played against the San Francisco 49ers.
ESPN reported Sean Kugler was accused of inappropriately touching a female on Sunday night. Mexican authorities were made aware of the allegations, and then told the Cardinals of it all. Kugler was fired a short time later and sent back to Arizona on Monday morning.
The Cardinals had arrived in Mexico on Saturday night for the big game against the 49ers on Monday. The Cardinals went on to lose the game, 38-10.
Arizona Cardinals officials have yet to confirm the report. In announcing the firing on Tuesday, Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury would only say Kugler had been involved in an off-field “incident.”
Kugler had been on the Cardinals’ staff since 2019. He previously coached for the Lions, Bills, Steelers and Broncos. He also served as the head coach of UTEP from 2013-2017.
