Panthers expected to interview Chris Tabor for HC job

Chris Tabor will get his chance to knock the “interim” label off.

As first reported by Joe Person of The Athletic on Wednesday, the Carolina Panthers are expected to give Tabor the opportunity to interview for their head-coaching vacancy. The 52-year-old served as the team’s interim head coach for the final six games of the 2023 season.

Tabor first came over to Carolina as their special teams coordinator in 2022. His sparkling reputation, as well as his highly-acclaimed work from that campaign, helped him survive the organization’s regime switch from Matt Rhule to Frank Reich last offseason.

After the team parted ways with Reich following their Week 12 loss to the Tennessee Titans, Tabor was named to the interim role. The Panthers went 1-5 over his six games at the post.

In addition to Tabor, who is now the 12th known candidate, Carolina is also expected to interview another in-house contender in defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero.
