Rapoport: Cardinals likely to interview Steve Wilks second time

After the team interviewed Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks Wednesday, Wilks was scheduled to then interview for the Indianapolis Colts' vacant coaching job on Thursday.

The Arizona Cardinals and Detroit Lions also plan to interview Wilks while the Panthers already appear to be reorganizing their coaching staff on one side of the ball, firing offensive coordinator Mike Shula and quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey on Tuesday.

But their defensive coordinator post could be in flux, as well.

Wilks has close ties to Gettleman, who was Carolina's general manager until being fired before the start of this past season. The Giants always appreciate bringing back their own and could do so if Wilks wants to hire Al Holcomb, the Panthers' linebackers coach, and Chase Blackburn, the Panthers' assistant special teams coach. This was his sixth year with the Panthers and first as defensive coordinator.

Additionally, despite the Colts defense allowing the 30th most points per game at 25.2 avg. ppg. last season, the franchise is coming off of six up-and-down seasons from a previous defensive-minded head coach, Chuck Pagano, meaning it could be time to go in another coaching philosophy direction entirely for change's sake.
