Like Jerod Mayo, Jim Caldwell is a man who knows his worth.
On Friday morning, NFL Network insider Mike Garafolo reported that the Washington Commanders reached out to the 67-year-old about their vacancy at offensive coordinator. But Caldwell, who has already interviewed for two head coaching positions thus far, wasn’t interested.
Caldwell went 62-50 during his seven seasons at the helm. That run resulted in four trips to the playoffs, including an appearance in Super Bowl XLIV with his 14-2 Colts.
As the search stands, the Panthers have either interviewed or requested to interview with 10 candidates. Caldwell, along with fellow former Colts coach Frank Reich and Carolina’s 2022 interim leader Steve Wilks, is one of three men in the pool to have experience at the very top of the NFL totem pole.
So, no, it doesn’t seem like Caldwell would be interested in a consolation prize of being, say, Wilks’ offensive coordinator either.
