While Kyler Murray makes the push for a contract of his own, Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury came to terms on an extension with the team Wednesday, Ian Rapoport reports.

Kingsbury, as well as Cardinals general manager Steve Keim, were both extended by Arizona; keeping them in the desert for the foreseeable future.

Fans reacted to the news across social media. "Well that’s mildly interesting in the middle of Kyler’s clear push for a new contract and all that’s come from that," tweeted Yahoo Sports' Matt Harmon.

"Does this push Kyler’s group to put out the all caps, comic sans font bold letter?" asked Greg Esposito.

"You got to be kidding me," a Cardinals fan replied. "This organization is a joke. Both should be FIRED."

"This is insane," another fan replied. "Kliff maybe, keim? Come on."

"Now Kyler Murray is wondering 'what about me?'" said Dov Kleiman.

"A big W for the rest of the NFC West this morning," another user commented.

"Keim traded up for Josh Rosen, then gave up on him after a year so he could take Kyler Murray. Spent his next 2 1st-round picks on inside linebackers, and seems hesitant to extend Murray," noted Draft Wire's Luke Easterling.

"This comes on a day [Dan Bickley] wrote Cardinals ownership is ‘surely seething’ about Kyler and suggested a Kyler for Watson trade," tweeted NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.

Hard to imagine the Cardinals' decision will play well in the Kyler Murray camp.
