CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Cam Newton made a return to the Carolina Panthers this season as the starting quarterback for at least a couple of games but his impact on the Carolinas extends beyond football. That’s probably part of the reason why United States Representative Alma Adams has nominated Newton for the highest honors given by both governors in North Carolina and South Carolina.
His high school coach compares Wright’s approach and composure to Rock Hill and Gamecock great Stephon Gilmore.
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.
