Former Texas Tech Red Raiders head coach Kliff Kingsbury has agreed to a contract to become the USC Trojans Offensive Coordinator, according to The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman. He replaces Tee Martin, who was let go at the end of the season after being the Trojans Offensive Coordinator.
Kingsbury had interest from the Trojans, along with other college football teams. He also was considered for NFL jobs, as well.
On Monday, Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that he talked to Kingsbury about potentially joining his staff after the season, according to FootballScoop.
This is a big hire for Clay Helton, who guided the team to a 5-7 record this season. He was an embattled head coach prior to Athletic Director Lynn Swann announcing that Helton was remaining the head coach.
With the Trojans, he would help develop J.T. Daniels, who will be a sophomore in 2019. The true freshman has gone 216 of 362 for 2,661 yards in 11 games. He also had 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
Kingsbury brings the Air Raid offense to Los Angeles, California with this move. He has been known to have high-scoring offenses much of the time as the Red Raiders head coach.
The 39-year-old San Antonio, Texas was previously an Offensive Coordinator with the Texas A&M Aggies in 2012 before returning to his alma mater. He was the Houston Cougars Co-Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks coach in 2010 and 2011.
In 2008 and 2009, he was the Cougars Quality Control Coach.
