Update: Washington makes the hire official

According to Peter Schrager of the NFL on Fox, Washington has hired former Cardinals’ head coach Kliff Kingsbury as its offensive coordinator.

Kingsbury served as the offensive coordinator at the University of Houston and then Texas A&M, eventually moving to head coach Texas Tech for five years. He spent four years in Arizona as head coach before being let go in 2022. Last season, he was a senior offensive analyst for USC.

The Washington Commanders retained Eric Bieniemy as their offensive coordinator after firing head coach Ron Rivera. He interviewed for head coach, but that job went to Dallas Cowboys DC Dan Quinn. Bieniemy was expected to be replaced after a disappointing year, and Sam Howell’s decline towards the end of the season. This hiring, and Bieniemy’s likely firing, aren’t expected to be made official until tomorrow at the earliest. Quinn’s introductory press conference is scheduled for 2:30 tomorrow afternoon.
