USC hired Kingsbury on December 5 after letting go of previous offensive coordinator Tee Martin. Martin was fired alongside several other personnel including Kenechi Udeze, Ronnie Bradford, Bryan Ellis and Neil Callaway. Their departures came after the Trojans finished 5-7, their worst season since 2000.
Kingsbury's quarterback accolades include Johnny Manziel, Baker Mayfield and Patrick Mahomes. Manziel and Mayfield both won Heisman trophies, while Mahomes has led the Kansas City Chiefs to the playoffs. All three were first round picks in their respective drafts.
USC will now look to replace Kingsbury ahead of spring football practice.
This is a developing news story. USC Annenberg Media will provide more updates as they become available.
