There isn't just one answer. He helmed an offense at Texas Tech that put up jaw-dropping passing stats on an annual basis and helped Patrick Mahomes become the No. 10 overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Still, Kingsbury does bring some offensive chops. Kingsbury went 16-21 over his final three seasons in Lubbock.
McDaniels has interviewed for several head coaching opportunities in recent years, but he's grown picky about the teams he'd be willing to leave the Patriots for.
Kingsbury will now take over for Steve Wilks, who was sacked by the Cardinals after just one year. His defenses routinely finished outside the top 100 in college football, with his best team defense ranking 87th in 2013.
McDaniels has won five Super Bowl rings with the Patriots. For certain, he has a clever offensive mind, but after losing his job at Texas Tech, he would have been wise to take a step back, work as an offensive coordinator and rebuild his reputation. That Hollywood role seemed a good fit for the young, good-looking mastermind. He also played in NFL Europe and the CFL before transitioning into coaching at the college level. In a copycat league, finding the next McVay is the newest whim. Apparently for the Arizona Cardinals, their enemy is also their friend. Dorsey's agent was also McDaniels' agent at the time, but chose to move on from the coach after the Colts drama.
