On Wednesday, it was reported that former Arizona Cardinals coach Steve Wilks will join the Carolina Panthers coaching staff as pass prevention coordinator and second-line coach.
Steve Wilks also previously interviewed for the New York Giants defensive coordinator position, but that position has likely gone to Don Martindale.
Steve Wilks was the defensive coordinator at the University of Missouri last season. He was second-line coach with the Carolina Panthers from 2012-2016 and was promoted to defensive coordinator in 2017. A year later, Steve Wilks was hired as head coach by the Arizona Cardinals, only to be fired after just one year of coaching. He served as the Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator for the 2019 season.
Carolina Panthers coach Matt Rhule has added a number of seasoned members to his staff, including defensive line coach Paul Pasqualoni, offensive line coach Ames Campen and offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo.
