The Cleveland Browns announced Monday that they’ve officially hired former Cardinals HC Steve Wilks as their new defensive coordinator.
According to Ian Rapoport, the Browns are expected to hire former Cardinals HC Steve Wilks as their new defensive coordinator and a deal should be finalized on Monday.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Browns are working to hire former Cardinals HC Steve Wilks as their new defensive coordinator.
Wilks, 49, began his NFL coaching career with the Bears as their defensive backs coach back in 2006. He spent two years with the Chargers before following Ron Rivera to Carolina as their defensive backs coach.
The Panthers promoted him to assistant head coach in 2015 and then to defensive coordinator last year after Sean McDermott took the Bills’ job.
Wilks agreed to become the Cardinals’ head coach last year but elected to fire him a few weeks ago.
During his first year as Cardinals’ head coach, Wilks led the team to a 3-13 record (18.7 percent).
