It looks like one NFL team is making a serious push to make Kliff Kingsbury their next head coach.
According to ProFootballTalk, Kingsbury is still visiting with the New York Jets on Tuesday for their head coaching vacancy after an initial meeting on Monday.
Reports from earlier this morning indicated that Kingsbury was on his way to Arizona to meet with the Cardinals.
The implication here is that the Jets are making a more serious effort to recruit Kingsbury.
Just heard that Kliff Kingsbury may still be visiting with the Jets and not yet in Arizona. And all that that potentially implies.

The Jets fired former head coach Todd Bowles after finishing with an AFC-worst 4-12 record, which was their third straight season with 11 or more losses.
Kingsbury, who was hired as offensive coordinator of USC in December, was reportedly blocked from interviewing from NFL jobs by the Trojans. However, USC has since scrubbed his name from their official staff list, suggesting that he is no longer with the school.
In six seasons as head coach of the Texas Tech Red Raiders, Kingsbury went 35-40.
