Kingsbury, 39, just took the USC offensive coordinator position after being fired from Texas Tech in November, and the school is blocking him from interviewing with National Football League teams. But NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said the school had granted approval for Kingsbury to interview with the Cardinals.

Schefter said the Cardinals and Kingsbury have a "strong mutual interest".

When Kliff Kingsbury agreed to become USC's new offensive coordinator under a month ago, it appeared the race to hire the former Texas Tech head coach was over. It was suggested Kingsbury could interview still but to do so would require him to resign from his job as offensive coordinator.

The New England Patriots are preparing to lose Josh McDaniels to a potential head coaching gig this offseason, and they may already have a replacement in mind.

Kingsbury was sacked at Texas Tech after the Red Raiders finished the season on a five-game losing streak.

The former Air Raid slinger served as offensive coordinator at Texas A&M during the height of Johnny Manziel mania before taking the post at Texas Tech. He reportedly turned down an interview request from the Cincinnati Bengals, and while he's been linked to the Cleveland Browns' opening, no official contact between coach and team has been reported. ESPN's Adam Schefter told ABC15 sports director Craig Fouhy that Kingsbury, Gase and Taylor are the three candidates to watch closely.

The apparent obstacle the Arizona Cardinals had with one of their head coaching targets is reportedly gone.
