Kliff Kingsbury backs out of consideration to be Raiders' OC



Kliff Kingsbury has withdrawn himself from consideration for the Las Vegas Raiders' offensive coordinator position, his agent Erik Burkhardt told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Sources told ESPN on Thursday that Kingsbury was expected to be hired under head coach Antonio Pierce.

Kingsbury, 44, was one of four candidates who interviewed for the vacant position during the past two weeks, along with Luke Getsy, Alex Van Pelt and Mike Sullivan. Van Pelt has since been hired to be the New England Patriots' offensive coordinator.

Kingsbury worked last fall with USC's Caleb Williams, the 2022 Heisman Trophy winner, as the Trojans' QB coach and senior offensive analyst.
