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.
Kingsbury is a prime candidate for the Arizona Cardinals' job.
"I'm completely focused on the Chargers and our season and finishing it strong".
Josh McDaniels almost left the New England Patriots last offseason when he originally accepted an offer to become the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. The Arizona Cardinals are expected to hire Kliff Kingsbury as their new head coach, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Peter Schrager.
However, because of the contract he signed with the Trojans and a new rule mandated from the NFL's owners meetings in December, USC was able to block interview requests.
McDaniels was also asked about what happened with the Colts past year and if that impacted things at all with other teams this season. McDaniels was asked if he believes spurning the Colts played any role in the lack of interview requests.
I'm telling you, I really have no idea what's going to happen here.
"I've said before, I think I have one of the best jobs in the world", McDaniels added Tuesday. I have appreciated every single one of them. "I'm grateful for the opportunity to continue competing this week against the Chargers". However, McDaniels changed his mind on the day of his introductory press conference, and stayed with the Patriots.
The 39-year-old coach was pivotal in the development of former Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who threw for 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns for the Chiefs this season.
