Cardinal’s assistant fired after Mexico City incident

Sean Kugler, the Cardinals’ running game coordinator and chief offensive line coach, was relieved of his duties by the team after an incident in Mexico City Sunday night, a day after the team arrived for its game against the 49ers on “Monday night football.” “

Details on exactly what happened remain vague, but Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury confirmed to The Republic on Tuesday that the 56-year-old Kugler was not involved in Arizona’s 10-38 loss to the San Francisco 49ers at the Estadio Azteca was present and was previously sent back to the Valley.

“We relieved him of his duties and he was sent home on Monday morning before the game,” Kingsbury said.

The Arizona Cardinals relieved offensive line coach and running game coordinator duties Monday before the team's game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Kingsbury said the move is permanent, meaning Kugler is no longer an employee of the team. A part of Kingsbury’s original team with the Cardinals in 2019, he has received regular praise from players, coaches and front office members.

“It’s a challenge every time you make a personnel change like this and I’m just going to leave it at that,” Kingsbury told The Republic.
