He also interviewed for the Cardinals' vacant head coaching position on Wednesday ahead of his meeting with Indianapolis' front office.

Seven of the nine coaches that Arizona has interviewed in its coaching search remain busy: Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak, Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo, Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, Pats linebackers coach Brian Flores and Atlanta Falcons special teams coach Keith Armstrong.

Wilks has close ties to Gettleman, who was Carolina's general manager until being fired before the start of this past season. This image reflects the Carolina Panthers active roster as of Thursday, May 12, 2016 when this image was taken. They were third in the league with 50 sacks.

It doesn't mean that the Colts shouldn't address their poor defense, as bringing in a highly qualified defensive coordinator should be a top priority for any new head coach in Indianapolis regardless.

Wilks also coached the San Diego Chargers secondary from 2009-11 and the Chicago Bears defensive backs from 2006-08. "He's a good coach for that".

If Steve Wilks is their guy, the Giants might have a head coach in place by the end of the week. "He has done a tremendous job of coming in and taking over this defense and really giving us a chance to be successful".
