Cardinals hire Wilks as head coach

Steve Wilks will reportedly be the Cardinals' next head coach

Steve Wilks will reportedly be the Cardinals' next head coach

Like his predecessor, Bruce Arians, who announced his retirement less than a month ago, Wilks is responsible for one of the toughest days in Cardinals history. He earned praise from head coach Ron Rivera for his preparation of the defense after succeeding Sean McDermott, who took over as Buffalo's head coach previous year. We just have to be able to sustain it. Under Washington, the Panthers defensive line has featured two All-Pro selections, two Pro Bowl selections, and three PFWA All-Rookie honorees.

In his one season as DC, Wilks help lead a defense that was 7th in the National Football League in overall defense and was 3rd in sacks with 50. "He comes to work every day and guys respect that". Wilks will have the personnel needed in order to be successful. "It's fun to play for them".

Arizona finished the year 8 and 8.

Last week, Rivera talked about Wilks' coaching potential.

Bitcoin price: 'IMPOSSIBLE' to totally ban cryptocurrency despite threats from Seoul
With so many new investors coming into the space, the market on cryptocurrency appears to continuously grow at a very fast pace. South Korea announced a few days that they were seeking out ways to regulate cryptocurrencies , with rumors of an outright ban.

He gained his first professional coaching experience by twice participating in the NFL's Minority Internship Program, assisting with the Bears defensive line during training camp in 2005 and aiding the Atlanta Falcons' linebackers during training camp in 2004.

The Cardinals were 8-8 last season and have to make a decision at quarterback because Carson Palmer retired.

Wilks was considered a hot coaching candidate coming into the process, but sort of drifted to the side as Patriots coordinators Matt Patricia and Josh McDaniels got most of the heat in coaching searches.

And general manager Steve Keim is turning his attention full-time to finding that elusive quarterback, through a trade, free agency, the draft or any combination of the three.
