Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury is concentrating on the task at hand.

During media availability Monday morning, Kingsbury faced the news of former Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley’s departure to Los Angeles. When asked about his interest in the job offer, he replied, “I don’t mess with those things.”

“We are in season, we are 9-2, but it is not a subject that I want to touch now,” Kingsbury said during a Zoom call with reporters. He also added that his main focus is facing the Bears, who are coming off a 16-14 victory over the Lions on Thanksgiving.

Following the announcement of Riley’s departure from Oklahoma, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Sooners were targeting Kingsbury as a possible replacement. According to Schefter, Kingsbury has one year left on his contract with Arizona after this season.

Meanwhile, Kingsbury claimed the announcement did not dissuade him from his NFL responsibilities on Sunday. He told reporters that he spent the entire day in his movie theater watching the game’s movie and choking on the Queen of the South series, adding that the announcement did not affect him in the least.

Kingsbury will continue to prepare for the Cardinals’ showdown against the Bears, which is scheduled for Sunday, December 5.

The Cardinals currently sit at the top of the NFC West and have the inside court for the No. 1 seed in the NFC. Arizona is one game ahead of the Packers and Buccaneers in the loss column, although they don’t have the tiebreaker over Green Bay. The Packers won their head-to-head matchup in Week 8. The Cardinals do not play Tampa Bay during the regular season.
