Kingsbury spoke about Murray's status on the depth chart during an appearance Wednesday on the Jim Rome Show. Murray, 21, was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft on April 25. The 2018 Heisman Trophy winner joins a team with Brett Hundley and Chad Kanoff on its roster at the quarterback position.
The Cardinals hired Kingsbury in January after firing first-year head coach Steve Wilks. Kingsbury, 39, recruited Murray when he was the offensive coordinator at Texas A&M. Murray went on to sign with the Aggies, as Kingsbury left the school to become the coach at Texas Tech. Murray later transferred to Oklahoma, where he would become the top college football prospect.
Murray is expected to secure a four-year contract worth at least $35 million this off-season, but his status as the Week 1 starter is undecided, according to his new coach.
"We'll see," Kingsbury said. "You know, we are still working through all of those things. We have Brett Hundley here, who we are very excited about. We will see where that kinda goes."
