The Arizona Cardinals have had one of their worst seasons, and now according to reports the team will part ways with its first-year coach, Steve Wilks. ESPN reported on Sunday that Wilks is on his way out, as the Cardinals entered Week 16 with a 3-11 record.

Wilks came to Arizona from the Carolina Panthers, where he was defensive coordinator. Wilks fired his offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and replaced him with Byron Leftwich, but rookie quarterback Josh Rosen has been struggling. Rosen has been ineffective and spent much of the season taking hits and being sacked.

If the Cardinals lose their final two games, their 3-13 record will match their worst since the franchise moved from St. Louis in 1988.
