Arizona Cardinals to hire Steve Wilks as head coach

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Wilks was the head coach at Savannah State back in 1999.

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera's hunch about his defensive coordinator, Steve Wilks, was correct.

Although the news has not officially been confirmed by the team as of yet, they have no other interviews scheduled, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Wilks was Carolina's defensive coordinator for one season. He has spent 11 seasons as an assistant in the National Football League, however.

Wilks also interviewed for the head coaching job with the Tennessee Titans, and was a candidate for the Los Angeles' Rams head coach opening previous year.

The Cardinals reportedly interviewed at least nine candidates for the head coaching position.
