The Cardinals were the only team that has given him a head coaching stint, and he lasted for one season, finishing 3-13.
However, NFL Network insider Mike Garafolo shared that Wilks has a different complaint.

Allen was drafted sixth overall by the Buffalo Bills in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Meanwhile, Rosen went to Arizona at number ten and uttered the infamous quote, “There were nine mistakes made ahead of me.”
Four years on, their careers are on opposite sides of the spectrum.
Allen has consistently led the Bills to the playoffs and has earned a six-year, $258 million extension.
Meanwhile, Rosen suited up for the Atlanta Falcons, his fourth year in as many seasons.
After the Cardinals, he was part of the Miami Dolphins and the San Francisco 49ers but saw limited action.
Flores’ complaint against Miami Dolphins owner Stephen M. Ross directly affected his job.
He was asked to lose games for additional money.
While he could be richer if he accepted the alleged offer, the mounting defeats would set him up for failure.
Meanwhile, Wilks’ complaint is more of a front-office decision; wherein there are more misses than hits.
In hindsight, having Allen could have made the Cardinals into an NFC powerhouse, and he might have kept his job until now.
However, Rosen is also at fault for not living up to expectations, which Wilks cannot control.
Unfortunately, heads roll when a team underperforms, and the coach often gets the ax.
