Panthers fans react to 49ers hiring Steve Wilks as new DC
When the Carolina Panthers decided not to bring back 2022 interim head coach Steve Wilks, it was like the franchise lost a family member. But luckily for Uncle Wilks, he’s landed on his feet.
On Tuesday, NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero was first with the news that Wilks will be hired as the next defensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers. And that development, of course, was met with great joy by the Carolina faithful.
Here are just a few of the best reactions from Panthers fans . . .
Good for Steve Wilks.
Rooting for him, against them. https://t.co/ElDkbmIDm3

Work best for both parties. We got our Offensive minded Coach
Wilks took arguably the best Coordinator job available.
Love to see it

The #49ers have changed the course of our franchise this past season:
After the #49ers game:
– Matt Rhule fired.
– Baker Mayfield benched/traded
– Acquired Christian McCaffrey
– Hired Steve Wilks as their DC.
Did I leave any out?
