Panthers complete virtual interview with Chris Tabor on Wednesday

The Carolina Panthers have officially completed the first interview of their 2024 head-coaching search.

As announced on Wednesday, the team has conducted a virtual interview with 2023’s interim head coach and special teams coordinator Chris Tabor. Tabor took over in place of former head coach Frank Reich for the final six games of the season.

That six-game stint saw the Panthers, who finished at 2-15, go 1-5. Tabor told reporters this past Monday that his team’s lone win over that run, a walk-off triumph over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 15, was his most memorable moment of the rough campaign.

“Didn’t like the way we played in New Orleans,” he said of Carolina’s Week 14 loss to the Saints. “Wasn’t real happy after the game on that one. And then to be able to look those guys in the eye and say, ‘Guys, we’re gonna win this next game.

“And go through that process the next week, and then you show up Sunday and it’s a rainstorm, windstorm, everything else is goin’,” he continued. “And it’s all we have. And we end up winnin’ the game. And to be able to celebrate in the locker room because we all did it together.”

The Panthers also noted that they are expecting to interview another in-house candidate, defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero.
