Arizona Cardinals offensive line coach and running game coordinator Sean Kugler was fired after he allegedly groped a woman in Mexico City over the weekend, sources told ESPN.

Mexican authorities were notified of the incident, which happened Sunday night, and then informed the Cardinals, who terminated Kugler and sent him back to Arizona on a flight Monday morning. The Cardinals had arrived in Mexico City on Saturday.

"We relieved him of his duties, and he was sent home Monday morning prior to the game," Kingsbury told Arizona Republic's Bob McManaman. "It's challenging anytime you make a staff change in that type of manner."


No details regarding the incident involving Kugler have been released by the team since.

The Cardinals were in Mexico City for their Week 11 game against the San Francisco 49ers. They ended up losing 38-10.

Kugler, 56, had been with the Cardinals since 2019 when he was hired as offensive line coach.

Kingsbury said the move is permanent, meaning Kugler is no longer an employee of the team. He was part of Kingsbury's original staff with the Cardinals in 2019 and had earned steady praise from players, coaches, and members of the front office.

«It's challenging anytime you make a staff change in that type of manner and I'm just going to leave it at that,» Kingsbury told The Republic.
