Arizona Cardinals offensive line coach and running game coordinator Sean Kugler has been fired following an incident in Mexico City over the weekend, head coach Kliff Kingsbury confirmed Tuesday.
Kingsbury told the Arizona Republic that Kugler was sent home before Monday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers.
”We relieved him of his duties, and he was sent home Monday morning prior to the game,” he told the outlet. “It’s challenging anytime you make a staff change in that type of manner and I’m just going to leave it at that.”
