Former Bills QB Frank Reich fired as Panthers head coach

The comeback did not go according to plan for Frank Reich this time.

In fact, in the exact opposite direction.

Once upon a time, Reich, formerly the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, was fired. Reich was given an opportunity to circle the wagons on his head coaching career in Carolina this offseason and it only lasted 11 games.

On Monday, the Panthers announced that Reich had been fired once again.

The final straw appears to have been Carolina’s latest loss on Sunday. They were defeated 17-10 defeat at the hands of the Tennessee Titans.

According to The Athletic, Panthers owner Dave Person was seen after the loss leaving the locker room visibly (and audibly) upset after the latest outing. The defeat sent the Panthers to a NFL-worst 1-10 record.

The hope in Carolina was the Reich and rookie first-overall pick, quarterback Bryce Young, would help turn around the team’s woes on offense. Signs weren’t there as the team ranks 30th in total yards per game (265.9) and 29th in points per game (15.7).

But there are many critics of the move. Was Reich fired too quickly? After only 11 games, his dismissal is the fastest ever in league history.
