Once again, we had plenty of changes at head coach in the NFL this offseason. We have seven new coaches in the league, making it five straight seasons with at least six new coaches in the NFL. This isn't a huge surprise, though, as teams are in a win-now mode more than ever. There is little margin for error these days, especially if you consider how quickly teams seem to be able to turn it around.
The big question is how do these coaching hires impact fantasy teams? Well, that is what we are here to tell you. We'll give you the lowdown on all the coaching moves and how they could impact fantasy players on those teams moving forward.
Long-time Cardinals head coach Bruch Arians called it quits this offseason, retiring from the team. Arizona named Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks the replacement for Arians. Wilks has a defensive background but made a pretty good fantasy hire for his offensive coordinator, hiring Mike McCoy to call plays for his offense. McCoy has a track record of some success with the Chargers and Broncos, so the Cardinals seem to be in pretty good hands on that side of the ball. The team might not be as wide open as past seasons with Arians at the helm, though. Wilks could take a little more conservative approach offensively.
