It’s been reported for a couple of weeks now that the Arizona Cardinals plan on making Steve Wilks a one-and-done head coach.
On Friday, the team may have been sending him a not-so-subtle message confirming all the rumors. As he walked up for his weekly press conference ahead of the final game this year, his podium was conspicuously missing.
At this point, even Wilks seemed to acknowledge the writing on the wall.
“Man, you know you’re getting to the end when they don’t give you a damn podium,” Wilks quipped as he laughed about the missing podium, per Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic.
Highly touted coming out of Carolina before helming Arizona’s franchise last year, Wilks’ first (and potentially last) season in Arizona has been a disaster.
