Much of them are older (think 70-year-old Pete Carroll), not as physically fit (sorry, Andy Reid) and just don’t show off those pearly whites (looking at you, Bill Belichick) quite like the dashing 42-year-old at the helm of the Cardinals.
Kingsbury may just be the most eligible bachelor in the NFL, and that’s including players such as Jimmy Garoppolo. When he left Lubbock, Texas, for the offensive coordinator position at USC, the school felt the need to mention in his bio that he was single. While manning the Texas Tech Red Raiders program, he was actually proposed to by fans. He may as well be today’s version of Joe Namath.
The San Antonio, Texas, native is more than a pretty face, though. He’s been hailed as an offensive coaching wizard throughout his coaching career and has mentored the likes of Patrick Mahomes, Kyler Murray, Baker Mayfield and Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M.
Kinsgbury himself is a former quarterback who went on to hold Division I college football records at Texas Tech University, was selected in the 2003 NFL Draft and won a Super Bowl with the New England Patriots. He also spent time with the New Orleans Saints, Denver Broncos and New York Jets, in addition to playing in the Canadian Football League and NFL Europe. He was raised by Sally Kingsbury and Tim Kingsbury, who coached him during his days at New Braunfels High School in San Antonio.
It’s no secret that Kingsbury is a desirable man making millions of dollars, but just who has the American football coach dated and how is he still on the market?
Kliff Kingsbury’s Ex-Girlfriend Holly Sonders
Kliff Timothy Kingsbury and former FOX Sports host and reporter Holly Sonders were rumored to be dating as early as January 2019, a suspicion that seemed confirmed judging from her Twitter account. She congratulated the football coach when he landed the gig in Arizona during the offseason ahead of the 2019 campaign.
“The desert just got a whole lot hotter. Congratulations @KliffKingsbury, so proud of you,” she posted on social media. She also called their relationship “a little past the crush part” to quench all of our sports gossip thirsts.
Sonders, a former collegiate golfer at Michigan State who graduated in 2009, had been a staple on the Golf Channel after pursuing a career in journalism. The now 34-year-old has more than 215,000 followers on Twitter and 600,000 on Instagram.
Kliff Kingsbury’s New Girlfriend?
Everyone’s an Instagram model these days.
It didn’t take long for Kingsbury to move on from his relationship with Sonders. According to reports, Kingsbury began seeing an Instagram model at the beginning of 2020.
Renee Estella is her name, and it appears Kingsbury has a type. Not much is known about the woman with more than 700,000 Instagram followers except that she’s just 28 years old and is an ambassador for Matte Swim. She frequently posts pics in swimwear to her social media accounts.
Per her Instagram bio, Estella splits time between New York, Los Angeles and Miami.
Good luck finding photos of she and Kingsbury together. He keeps his personal life private and it seems she does, too. Whether or not the two were actually an item is anyone’s guess.
In late 2020, Kingsbury was also linked to fitness model Veronica Bielik.
It appears Kingsbury is currently single. But no matter what, it would probably take quite the impression to become Kliff Kingsbury’s girlfriend.
As the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League, Kingsbury has quite the gig and a hefty net worth because of it.
At this point, Kingsbury should just be the next contestant on “The Bachelor.”
