The Arizona Cardinals fired offensive line coach/running game coordinator Sean Kugler on Tuesday after an incident in Mexico City on Sunday, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
The game that the Cardinals played against the 49ers in Week 11 took place in Mexico City. The Cardinals were defeated by the 49ers by a score of 38-10.
According to numerous sources, Ian Rapoport, an insider for NFL Network, revealed on Wednesday that Kugler was fired after the team was made aware of an alleged incident between a lady and Kugler at a hotel the night before the game. The incident allegedly occurred when Kugler was with the woman.
According to Rapoport, the issue is currently being investigated by Mexican authorities. The NFL is aware of the claimed incident and is collecting information on it; however, because Kugler was removed of his duties, no sanction is likely unless Kugler attempts to return to the league. The NFL is aware of the reported incident and is collecting information on it.
As per Rapoport, Arizona refused to go further than what Kingsbury had said the previous day.
In the third episode of “Hard Knocks: The Arizona Cardinals,” which aired earlier this season, Kingbury addressed the team and discussed the circumstances surrounding Kugler’s resignation.
“Several topics that I’d want to briefly discuss. First things first, there is certainly an issue inside the coaching staff. Therefore, on behalf of the entire coaching staff, I would want to apologize. Unacceptable. We are aware of that, and we won’t let it happen again “Kingsbury remarked. “And moving forward, I’m going to pose two questions to the entirety of this group. Be certain that, going forward, nobody will be required to stand in front of the media and answer any questions about stupid s—- off the field or effort on the field. This should be your first priority. Everybody got me? No more, on to the next step.”
Kugler, who is 56 years old, had been working for the Cardinals ever since 2019 when he was hired to coach the offensive line. Kugler started his career as a coach in the National Football League in 2001 with the Detroit Lions, where he worked as the tight ends coach until 2005. He has also worked as an assistant for the Buffalo Bills, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Denver Broncos.
Assistant offensive line coach Brian Natkin and tight ends coach Steve Heiden will be taking up the coaching responsibilities for the offensive line.
