Moving on after Bruce Arians called it a career, the Arizona Cardinals were among seven NFL teams searching for a new head coach following the 2017 regular season.

They were the among the last to make their choice, hiring Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks on Monday after a deliberate round of interviews with nine coaching candidates.

While several teams publicly made hires, a handful of others decided on their new coaches but couldn’t make the moves official until those coaches’ current teams ended their respective seasons.

It appeared that Arizona was last to finalize their hire, but after Super Bowl LII, the Indianapolis Colts’ expected hire of Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels was set back when the New England assistant opted to instead remain under coach Bill Belichick.

The Colts scrambled and reportedly have decided to hire Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich to wrap the coaching carousel this offseason.

Here is a list of the job openings, who left and who will take over.

Team Outgoing coach Incoming coach, previous job
Arizona Cardinals Bruce Arians Steve Wilks, Panthers DC
Chicago Bears John Fox Matt Nagy, Chiefs OC
Detroit Lions Jim Caldwell Matt Patricia, Patriots DC
Indianapolis Colts Chuck Pagano Josh McDaniels, Patriots OC Frank Reich, Eagles OC
Oakland Raiders Jack Del Rio Jon Gruden, ESPN analyst
New York Giants Ben McAdoo Pat Shurmur, Vikings OC
Tennessee Titans Mike Mularkey Mike Vrabel, Texans DC
