Colts still interested in Panthers' Steve Wilks but no interview date set

The Giants are talking to Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks today, and they'll be prepared to make a decision quickly if he impresses them. Gettleman was the general manager in Carolina for four years and got to see Wilks operate as the defensive backs coach. As assistant head coach of the Panthers since 2015, though, he has played a larger role than other assistant coaches usually do in addressing and preparing the team.

This was Wilks' first season as the Panthers' defensive coordinator, where he took over for first-year Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott.

He has been a secondary and defensive backs coach in the league since 2005 while coaching the Bears, Chargers and Washington and on the staffs of head coaches Joe Gibbs, Lovie Smith, Norv Turner and Ron Rivera.

Wilks has close ties to Gettleman, who was Carolina's general manager until being fired before the start of this past season. Former Giants Super Bowl hero Chase Blackburn is also on staff in Carolina, so maybe he joins the new staff, too.

"You look at the great head coaches and I'll tell you right now, there ain't a dumb one in the group". The Giants are one of those teams and are expected to interview him as early as Monday.

Mara has said he "ideally" would like for his next head coach to have that experience after novice head coach Ben McAdoo did not work out. "It really is", Gettleman said in his introductory news conference.

The Colts have interviewed a handful of candidates already including New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy, Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Kris Richard and Houston Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel.

Studesville, who was running backs coach for the Broncos from 2010-17 and with the Giants from 2001-03, was scheduled to interview last week but the Giants had to reschedule due to a snow storm.

Wilks' candidacy could come down to this: Does an endorsement by Gettleman and possibly an eye-opening impression at the interview overshadow the expressed desires of what the Giants want in their next head coach?
