Former Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury is now the head coach of an NFL franchise with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Kingsbury, who was USC’s offensive coordinator for a couple of weeks, was introduced as the Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday.
The Cardinals will be picking No. 1 overall in this spring’s NFL Draft.
Who will they be taking?
Well, back in the fall, Kingsbury said that if he was running an NFL franchise, he would take Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray at No. 1.
Wednesday night, reports surfaced saying Murray, a top 10 pick in the MLB Draft, was expected to declare for the NFL Draft.
In October 2018, Kliff Kingsbury said he would take Kyler Murray as the first pick of the NFL draft if he could.

Now, we have ESPN’s Adam Schefter saying Murray going No. 1 is a real possibility.

Most assumed the Cardinals hired Kingsbury to help Rosen, their former first round pick, but if the franchise really loves Murray, it seems like that could happen, too.
