Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that the Panthers have already conducted their interview with interim HC Perry Fewell along with Mike McCarthy and are currently lining up interviews with Josh McDaniels, Eric Bieniemy and Kevin Stefanski.
La Canfora says Carolina is hoping to meet with Baylor HC Matt Rhule and the hiring process could be officially wrapped up as soon as this time next week.
Fewell, 57, began his NFL coaching career with the Jaguars as their defensive backs coach back in 1998. He has worked for a number of teams including the Rams, Bears, Bills, and Giants before he was hired by the Redskins as their defensive backs coach a few years ago.
Unfortunately, Washington fired Fewell along with defensive coordinator Joe Barry in 2017. The Jaguars hired him as their secondaries coach back in January of last year but the organization elected to part ways with him along with three other positions coaches.
The Panthers hired him as their secondary coach in January of last year and promoted him to their interim-head coach role after they fired Ron Rivera earlier this month.
Carolina was 0-4 under Fewell to finish out the season.
We’ll have more regarding the Panthers as the news is available.
