Once upon a time, Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper offered Matt Rhule a seven-year/$62 million contract to assure he landed his services as head coach, rather than interviewing for the same position with the New York Giants. Now as Rhule enters what is likely a make-or-break third year in Carolina, he could turn to a former Giants head coach to bring stability to his coaching staff.
According to numerous reports from a few reputable insiders, the situation between the Carolina Panthers and head coach Matt Rhule remains quite fluid . or does it? You won’t find many scribes outside of Jonathan Jones who have better connections to the franchise.
The latest coach connected to the search is former Vikings offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak, who Minnesota fans seem happy to send off. The rest of the list contains unproven assistants or longtime coaches lacking sustained success. Only one candidate, Los Angeles Rams offensive coordinator Kevin O’Connell, is currently or recently associated with a successful team.
