About Kliff Kingsbury

Kliff Kingsbury came to his role as the new coach of the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals with some innovative ideas, both on the field and off. In a sport where coaches are notoriously hard-nosed and old school, he made waves by instituting a new phone policy with his players that allowed for more social media time. This millennial-savvy coach with a combined Instagram and Twitter following of nearly 200K instituted breaks during meetings where players could get their fix of texting, tweeting and checking their feeds.
