Report: Panthers “Laying Groundwork” For 2014 Head-Coaching Search

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the Carolina Panthers have already “begun laying the groundwork” for a head-coaching search in 2014.

According to Rapoport’s sources, the Panthers have already begun doing background checks on possible candidate.

Current head coach Ron Rivera was hired by the Panthers previous general manager, so it’s very likely that GM Dave Gettleman will want to hire his own signal caller.

While Rivera is coming of an impressive blowout win over the Giants, but the overall feeling is that the team has underachieved during the two seasons under his leadership. Rivera is expected to finish the season, no matter the outcome, but would need a miracle to keep his job beyond this season.

    How can that cheap ass owner of the Panthers blame Riveria for not having a great team when he is not spending money to get an Offensive line? Many of us Panther fans where I live are so tired of this old fart having a few good key players and Richardson’s cheap old ass will not spend the money to get the whole team we need but just keep firing coaches. If he is not careful Newton will be gone as soon as his contract is up. This tea could be awesome but it the OWNERS fault. It’s hard to keep supporting a team that takes 3 steps forward and 2 steps back.
