Kliff Kingsbury spent the 2023 season as an offensive assistant on Kliff Kingsbury’s staff, but it sounds like he could be one-and-done at USC.

USC quarterback Miller Moss spoke this week about the impact Kingsbury has had on him. Moss seemed to drop a hint about Kingsbury’s future when the sophomore said he wishes Kingsbury “was hanging around longer.”

There has been no official word on whether Kingsbury plans to remain with the Trojans, but Moss’ comments are a strong indication that the coach is moving on.

Kingsbury joined USC as a senior offensive analyst and quarterbacks coach after he was fired as head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. Kingsbury went 29-37-across four seasons in Arizona. He was the head coach at Texas Tech for six seasons prior to that.

While his record as a head coach is not great, Kingsbury is only 44. There are probably college teams that would offer him an offensive coordinator position. There may be some NFL jobs available to him as well.

Some oddsmakers have even listed Kingsbury as a candidate for one NFL head coach job, though that is a serious long shot.
