Cardinals QB Kyler Murray Will Have A Say In Head Coaching Search

Written by Tony Ghaul

On Monday, the Cardinals fired Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury following a disappointing 4-13 season. General manager Steve Keim resigned from his position so that he could mostly focus on his health.

Per Johnny Venerable of PHNX Cardinals, team owner Michael Bidwill revealed stated that QB Kyler Murray will have some input on the team’s next head coach.

The relationship between Murray and the Cardinals has been tenuous over the past year.

It took both sides a while to reach a contract extension, but he eventually signed a five-year pact worth $230.5 million. The Cardinals curiously included a “study clause” in Murray’s extension, but it was removed following plenty of public backlash.

Murray’s season ended when he tore his ACL in Week 14 against the New England Patriots. 

The next Arizona GM and head coach will have plenty of work to do in rebuilding the team around Murray. There are holes on the offensive line and all over the defense.
