Giants coach continues to be a hot HC candidate
The Arizona Cardinals continued to expand their search for head coaches.
After sacking Kliff Kingsbury, the team are determined to make the best possible decision for the future of their organization, which now extends to a popular interviewee for head coaching roles across the league.
The Cardinals will interview Giants OC Mike Kafka for their head coaching opening, per source.
This will be the 4th team for Kafka to interview with this offseason after an excellent first season with the Giants.

Mike Kafka is just 35 and has already been interviewed for three head coaching gigs, with the Cardinals being his fourth.
Before beginning his coaching career in 2017, Kafka played in the NFL for six seasons, although he spent most of his time as a member of the practice squad.
As a coach, Kafka held positions as quality control coach, quarterbacks coach, and most recently, offensive coordinator.
He was the offensive coordinator for the New York Giants last season, and due to the team’s massive success, he continues to have interview opportunities.
Kafka had the opportunity to work with Patrick Mahomes on the Kansas City Chiefs for four seasons, and would provide invaluable experience to a team should they decide to hire him as their new head coach.
In the case of the Cardinals, they have a young superstar quarterback on their hands.
Although Kyler Murray has yet to reach the caliber of Mahomes, with a little coaching and guidance he could take a giant leap forward.
Murray is under contract with the Cardinals through the 2027 season.
Whoever becomes the Cardinals’ next coach is guaranteed to work with Murray for the foreseeable future.
Is Kafka the man you need for this job?
