Cardinals are closing in on a deal to make Panthers DC Steve Wilks their next head coach, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.
Somers reports that Wilks was impressive enough during his second interview with the team on Friday that he’s now expected to be hired as their next head coach.
Cardinals are expected to consider Eagles QB coach John DeFilippo for their OC job, but also plan to talk to Mike McCoy, Darell Bevell, and others.
Wilks was the Panthers assistant head coach in 2015 and was promoted to defensive coordinator last year after Sean McDermott took the Bills head coaching job.
The Cardinals HC position opened up when Bruce Arians announced his retirement after their week 17 game vs Seattle.
