Steve Wilks won't interview for Colts head coaching job

Steve Wilks won't interview for Colts head coaching job

We've already written a comprehensive profile of Wilks' résumé and his possible fit as the Colts' next head coach.

It doesn't mean that Wilks isn't qualified to be a head coach in the NFL, as his Carolina Panthers defensive unit was among one of the more stingier units in football last season, allowing the 11th fewest points per game at 20.4 avg. ppg.

Interviews with Wilks and Studesville would satisfy the league's Rooney Rule, which requires teams to speak with at least one minority hiring during their search.

Wilks met with the Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday and has departed with the expectation he will interview with the Indianapolis Colts before the end of the week. 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.

Wilks' future seems to be linked to Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. He continued the legacy of tough defenses in Carolina, which has created some buzz about him possibly getting a head coaching job this offseason.

Carolina coach Ron Rivera said Wilks uses an aggressive style as a coach. He met with the Rams past year before they hired Sean McVay.

It's not necessarily surprising, as the Colts were rumored to be heavily interested in former Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator, Matt Nagy, who elected to take the Chicago Bears head coaching position.
