Kugler, 56, joined the Cardinals in 2019 after spending one season as the offensive line coach for the Denver Broncos. He was the Cardinals’ offensive line coach for two seasons before run game coordinator was added to his role in 2021. From 2013-2017, Kugler for the head coach for the Texas-El Paso Miners and tallied an 18-36 record in five seasons. Kugler’s only winning record was in 2014 when he led UTEP to a 7-6 record and an appearance in the New Mexico Bowl.
Kugler began his coaching career in 1990 when he was the offensive line and defensive line coach at Tampa Bay Tech High School in Florida. He started coaching college football in 1993 when he became a graduate assistant at UTEP before being promoted to offensive line coach in 1995. Kugler entered the NFL in 2001 when he became the tight ends coach for the Detroit Lions. He also spent time with the Buffalo Bills, Pittsburgh Steelers and Boise State.
Things have not been going well for the Cardinals this season. Along with firing Kluger, Arizona lost to the 49ers on Monday night and the team is playing without their star quarterback Kyler Murray. After week 11 of the 2022 NFL season, the Cardinals are 4-7 and in 12th place in the conference.
“Kyler has progressed quite a bit,” Kingsbury said after the game on Monday, per the Cardinals’ official website. “I know that was tough for him to watch. If he can play this week and be full speed and do what he does, I’m sure he’ll find a way to be out there.”
