Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury is excited to work with "incredibly talented" quarterback Josh Rosen.

Kingsbury, a former NFL player who has been coaching at college level, was appointed by the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Officially introduced a day later, Kingsbury discussed working with Rosen, who threw for 2,278 yards with 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in his first NFL season.

"Josh Rosen is incredibly talented and one of the most talented throwers you'll see, a young player I'm excited to work with and develop," he said.

"It's hard to find a guy that throws it better."

Another player Kingsbury will get to work with is David Johnson, the running back who signed a three-year extension with the team in September.

"David Johnson is a tremendous asset. He's a guy who can come out of the backfield, go between the tackles, you can motion him out, he's a mismatch in space," he said.

"I can't wait for our offensive coaches to get their hands on him and use him as many ways as possible."

The Cardinals finished the 2018 season with a 3-13 record and on the bottom of the NFC West.
