Panthers add George Li as game management assistant

The Carolina Panthers have been so busy adding coaches during the past week that it’s kind of difficult to keep track. So it was awfully nice of head coach Frank Reich to give us a heads up on another.

While discussing the expected role of senior assistant Jim Caldwell during his presser on Tuesday, Reich mentioned that the team has added George Li as their game management coordinator.

“But really, the role with Coach Caldwell—it’s gonna be a little different,” he said. “He and I have talked about this and think the best value is that if he is intertwined—almost like I am as a head coach—he’s intertwined in the game management stuff with George Li, our game management coordinator, with Chris Tabor on special teams, with Ejiro on defense and certainly us on offense.”

Li has already worked alongside Reich, who brought him on with the Indianapolis Colts back in May of 2018. He served not only as the game management coordinator there, but also a senior football strategy analyst.

Prior to that stint, Li spent a handful of seasons with the Oakland Raiders. Starting as a defensive assistant in 2011, he’d climb his way up to a football operations statistical analyst and director of coaching analytics up until 2018.
