The Forecaddie joined most of the world in wondering how Kliff Kingsbury went from fired Texas Tech coach, to USC offensive coordinator, to Arizona Cardinals head coach in a matter of weeks.
But since The Man Out Front likes to stick to the golf beat, he’ll refrain from questioning the wisdom of Kingsbury’s NFL hiring.
What TMOF can do is clarify why longtime Golf Channel personality Holly Sonders congratulated Kingsbury on Twitter and mentioned the Arizona desert getting a lot hotter soon after the news hit.
Sonders and Kingsbury have been dating a while now, well before she ended her run as part of Fox Sports golf coverage and also before Kingsbury was let go by Texas Tech.
Here was Sonders’ tweet after the news of Kingsbury’s hiring broke:
The two reportedly met when Sonders was working Big 12 games as a sideline reporter and after Kingsbury was divorced. They’ve been an item since and Sonders was a big part of his desire to take the job at USC, near L.A.’s beach scene. While The Forecaddie is sad to see Sonders no longer in golf, knowing she’s excited about Kingsbury’s immediate move to the NFL is completely understandable. After all, the golf is pretty great in the desert.
