Arizona general manager Steve Keim also resigned to focus on his health, the team said.
Kingsbury took over as head coach of the Cardinals prior to the start of the 2019 season. He replaced Steve Wilks, who served as head coach in 2018. Kingsbury selected Kyler Murray with the first pick of that draft, replacing Josh Rosen, who was their first-round pick the year before.
The Murray-Kingsbury era began with a 5-10-1 record in 2019 and then went to 8-8 during the 2020 season when the team acquired DeAndre Hopkins to bolster the offense.

In 2021, Arizona finished 11-6 after winning the first seven games of the season. Murray began to earn MVP recognition, but that faded as the team lost three of its last four games. Arizona made the playoffs for the first time since 2015, but the team was eliminated by the Los Angeles Rams.
The Cardinals went from No. 11 in points scored and No. 8 in yards gained in 2021 to 21st in points scored and 22nd in yards gained in 2022. The team was initially hampered with the suspension of Hopkins to start the year and Murray some time was lost. Also with injuries.
