If hiring Kliff Kingsbury after a month long stay as offensive coordinator at USC rubbed people the wrong way, hold onto your hat if Bruce Feldman is correct.

Feldman, one of the top college football writers in the country, is reporting that the Arizona Cardinals are targeting newly hired Texas State head coach, who has not coached a game yet.

Spavital and Kingsbury were on Kevin Sumlin’s staff together at Houston, and Spavital, like Kingsbury, is an air raid disciple.

Spatival has been one of the main influences in the quarterback play of Brandon Weeden, Geno Smith, Johnny Manziel and Will Grier, some of the most successful college quarterbacks of the last decade.

He is another young and enthusiastic offensive mind with a decade spent in the Gus Malzahn, Kevin Sumlin and Dana Holgorsen coaching ranks.

Spavital is a 33-year old offensive guru. Does his name being linked to the Cardinals excite you, or is it too much youth on the offensive side of the ball?
