Josh McDaniels 'very much in play' for Packers

Kliff Kingsbury was hired by USC on Dec. 5. More

Kingsbury, 39, was one of five known candidates to interview for the position left vacant by Steve Wilks, who was sacked on New Year's eve following a 3-11 season. In November, the Red Raiders announced that Kingsbury wouldn't be brought back in 2019, and he subsequently signed with USC to be their offensive coordinator on December 5.

McDaniels said that the "book is closed" on any more interviews, thanking the Packers for the opportunity to interview with them.

New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels won't pursue any of the available head coaching jobs remaining in the current cycle.

Since becoming an offensive coordinator in 2011, Kingsbury's offenses have averaged nearly 550 yards and over 40 points per game. Kingsbury reportedly interviewed with the Jets on Monday.

USC was well within their rights to do such a thing, but allowing Kingsbury to explore his options, is the right thing to do.

Kingsbury is known as a brilliant offensive mind who gets the best out of the quarterbacks he coaches. Reports are that teams love him as a play caller.

These requests are directly in line with what most of the National Football League media has been stating, every National Football League team is looking for the next Sean McVay and Matt Nagy.

During his eight seasons in Lubbock, Kingsbury went 35-40, leading to his firing following Texas Tech's season.

He also worked with Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M and Case Keenum at Houston. It is expected that the Browns want a coach that can help develop quarterback Baker Mayfield and be his coach for the next decade.

At this point in time, the Packers appear to be the most likely team to offer McDaniels their head coaching position.
