Late last week, Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury was asked about being in the running for the NFL's Coach of the Year with Bill Belichick, but he doesn't believe there should even be a race -- as long as Belichick is still coaching.
"I mean, they should just name the award 'Bill Belichick,'" Kingsbury said to reporters. "And when he retires, like, bring that back. But, yeah, until he retires, I don't think anybody else should get the award, honestly. He should be that every single year that he's coaching."
Appearing on The Greg Hill Show Monday, Belichick was told of the comments and the Patriots coach responded with some high praise for Kingsbury, who played for Belichick in 2003.
"Very nice of Kliff to toss that bouquet, and I'll toss it right back," he said. "Kliff has done a great job. I think he's done a great job and should be the Coach of the Year this year."
Going into Monday Night Football, the Cardinals are 10-2 on the year, which is the best record in the entire league.
