Kliff Kingsbury, the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, told the Arizona Republic on Tuesday that the organisation has fired Sean Kugler from his position as offensive line coach and running game coordinator following a fight that took place on Sunday in Mexico City.
Kingsbury is quoted as saying in the article that was written by Bob McManaman for the Arizona Republic that “We took him off duty and sent him home before Monday’s game.” “It’s difficult when you transform the people in a way such as that,” said the man.
Kugler let go by Cardinals after altercation with woman in Mexico City
In Week 11, the Cardinals played the San Francisco 49ers away from home and ended up losing the game by a score of 38-10. The game took place in Mexico City, which was the host city.
After learning that a lady and Kugler had a confrontation at a hotel the night before the game, the team decided to terminate Kugler, according to Ian Rapoport, who works for the NFL Network. Rapoport made this statement on Wednesday.
According to Rapoport, Mexican authorities are conducting an investigation on what took place. The National Football League is aware of the incident and is currently collecting evidence, but they have no plans to take any further action unless Kugler makes a formal request to return to the league, which is highly improbable given that he has already been let off from his position.
According to Rapoport, Arizona did not provide any additional information beyond what Kingsbury stated on Tuesday. In the third episode of “Hard Knocks: The Arizona Cardinals,” head coach Kliff Kingsbury met with the players and discussed Kugler’s departure with them.
Cardinals’ offensive line coach Kugler under fire after report
“I’d want to discuss the following several topics with you. To begin, there is an issue with the team’s coaching staff. My apologies go out to the rest of the coaching staff for having to say this. Unacceptable. We assure you that this will not occur again.
” According to Kingsbury, this is the case. “In conclusion, moving forward I have two requests for everyone in the group to consider. In the future, you should make it such that nobody will ever have to face the media and answer questions about doing stupid things off the field or not working hard enough on the field. Are you guys on board with this? Completed, we will now move on.”
Since 2019, Kugler has been serving as the offensive line coach for the Cardinals. Kugler is currently 56 years old. In the National Football League (NFL), Kugler was the tight ends coach for the Detroit Lions from 2001 through 2005.
In addition to that, he has been of assistance to the Bills, the Steelers, and the Broncos.
Brian Natkin, who most recently served as an assistant offensive line coach, and Steve Heiden, who most recently served as an assistant tight ends coach, will be in charge of the offensive line.
