The Arizona Cardinals could be looking for a new head coach after Sunday’s finale against the San Francisco 49ers. Coach Kliff Kingsbury could be dismissed.
However, there might not be a drastic change to the coaching staff.
According to SI.com’s Albert Breer, Cardinals defensive coordinator Vance Joseph could be a lead candidate, “if not the lead candidate” to replace Kingsbury.
Joseph was head coach of the Denver Broncos in 2017-2019. He is highly respected in the locker room.
He would certainly be one of the first interviews. He is a qualified internal candidate and giving him an interview also helps comply with the league’s “Rooney Rule,” which requires teams to interview qualified minority candidates.
Would he be the lead candidate? That seems like a stretch, but he certainly is a qualified candidate.
