The coaching carousel has started for the Carolina Panthers. NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that the Panthers have fired special team’s coordinator Chase Backburn, offensive line coach Pat Myer and defensive line coach Frank Okam.
Blackburn, who spent seven years in Carolina as a player and coach, thanked the Panthers for the opportunity via Twitter.
The most important coaching decision Matt Rhule and company have yet to make is that of offensive coordinator. Expect more changes to come as the Panthers look to bounce back from back to back five-win seasons.
