The Cardinals are looking like they are headed for the top pick in April’s NFL Draft, and with it the team sounds like they are going to have a new coach, as Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Steve Wilks is going to be canned at the end of the season next Sunday.
The Cardinals hired Wilks after five-year head coach Bruce Arians announced his retirement at the end of last season. But going into Sunday’s game vs. the Los Angeles Rams, the Cardinals are just 3-11 in Wilks’ first season at the helm.
The 49-year-old Wilks served as defensive backs coach and later as defensive coordinator for the Panthers before being hired by the Cardinals for his first NFL head-coaching job.
“One source said he could not envision a scenario in which the Cardinals would bring back Wilks, who was just hired in January — a sign of how quickly owners get unhappy and impatient,” Schefter wrote on Sunday.
