Another pillar has been established in the reconstruction of the Carolina Panthers.
As officially announced on Wednesday afternoon, the organization is hiring Kansas City’s Brandt Tilis as their executive vice president of football operations. He now joins new president of football operations and general manager Dan Morgan atop the team’s reconfigured front office.
Tilis got his NFL start as a football operations intern for the then-Oakland Raiders in 2004. After a three-year run there, he moved to the league’s labor operations department, where he served as an intern and the labors operation coordinator.
In 2010, Tilis joined the Chiefs as salary cap and contract analyst. He’d go on to receive promotions into the roles of director of salary cap and football operations analyst in 2014 and as the director of football administration in 2017.
Tilis, who has been in Kansas City for a total of 14 seasons, served as the franchise’s vice president of football operations since 2021.
