We've already had a couple of NFL head coaching moves following the end of the 2018 regular season and another one can be added to the list.

The Arizona Cardinals will not be retaining head coach Steve Wilks heading into the 2019 season.

Wilks, 49, reportedly told his staff this morning that he's not returning.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport first reported the news.

"Steve Wilks has told his staff during a meeting that he will not be the coach going forward. He has not yet heard it official from owner Michael Bidwill. But that is what he has told his staff," he reported.

The Cardinals were expected to make a head coaching change following this season.

Arizona went 3-13 this season and will have the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Wilks was the Cardinals' head coach for just one season.
