New Cardinals' Coach Kliff Kingsbury Lied To USC When He Recently Accepted Their Offensive Coordinator Position, As If That's News
It might not seem like it, but I say the following with upmost respect for USC Head Coach Clay Helton. Boo...fucking...hoo. Sorry, but with the amount of talented kids whose career paths are wildly rerouted due to - shall we call them - professional mistruths, I'm just not about to shed any tears on behalf of a once problematic program that was mildly inconvenienced by the tenure of an assistant coach who terminated his own contract within a tick and a tock.
Granted, Kliff Kingsbury probably should have known that an NFL offer or two might have been en route to his doorstep, and he definitely should have been well aware of how alluring they would be when they eventually (inevitably?) arrived. Still, college football basically rewards its coaches for stepping on the backs of those underneath them in the process of most efficiently advancing their career. Am I supposed to act like I'm appalled during the rare instance in which that same not-so-hidden agenda makes those already padding their pockets off big-time college sports look stupid?
Short story shorter, Kliff Kingsbury isn't the first coach to lie and show a laughable lack of loyalty in paving his way to the pros as fast as possible. He's just the first one to use instant asphalt in doing based off of flavor-of-the-year affiliations with Sean McVay and Patrick Mahomes. Color me shocked that college football's Ryan Gosling wasn't exactly faithful when a better deal hit the table.
