Kliff Kingsbury: Coach of the Year
The most important piece in an NFL locker room is a quality head coach. Last season, Kliff Kingsbury was a questionable hire, to say the least after an underwhelming college career. Not only was his hire a shock, but his decision at quarterback was also. Kingsbury ousted former top ten selection, Josh Rosen, for the dual-threat dynamo Kyler Murray.
The second year of this marriage between Kingbury and Murray will prove pivotal to the overall team’s success. The Air-Raid offense fits Murray like a glove and offers endless opportunities for success. If coach Kingsbury can finally trot out a reliable defense week to week, this team can double their win total from last season.
A division title and top-two seed in the playoffs would solidify his case as a serious coach of the year candidate. The NFL is searching for the new offensive “boy wonder” to crown after Sean McVay and Kyle Shannahan. Kingsbury could etch his name among those two offensive masterminds with a phenomenal 2020 campaign. Believe it or not, Kingsbury should be an early coach of the year candidate.
