According to Josina Anderson of ESPN, the Panthers are scheduled to interview interim HC Perry Fewell for the full-time job next Wednesday.
The full list of scheduled interviews for the Panthers includes:
- Mike McCarthy (NFLTR)
- Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy (NFLTR)
- Patriots OC Josh McDaniels (NFLTR)
- Panther interim HC Perry Fewell
- Vikings OC Kevin Stefanski
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.
