TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have fired coach Kliff Kingsbury and parted ways with general manager Steve Keim after a dreadful season that saw constant unwanted headlines, a serious knee injury to star quarterback Kyler Murray and lots of losing.

The team confirmed the moves on Monday. The 43-year-old Kingsbury — who received a contract extension just last year — finishes his tenure with a 28-37-1 record over four seasons, including a 4-13 mark this season.

The Cardinals joined the Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, Houston Texans, and Indianapolis Colts as NFL teams with head coaching vacancies.

“We have announced that head coach Kliff Kingsbury has been relieved of his duties. In addition, General Manager Steve Keim has decided to step away from his position in order to focus on his health. The team wishes them well and thanks both of them for their contributions,” the Cardinals announced.

The Cardinals ended the season on a seven-game losing streak, falling to the San Francisco 49ers 38-13 on Sunday.

“As a coach you learn along the way,” Kingsbury said the Week 18 finale. “Each and every step I think there’s things that I’ll take from this and be a better coach moving forward. But you have to go through a season like this to try and make those changes moving forward.”

The 50-year-old Keim has been with the Cardinals since 1999 and has been the team’s general manager since 2013.
