Frank Reich was deemed no longer worthy to mentor the Carolina Panthers. His season came to an early end before their unfortunate defeat to the Tennessee Titans and Will Levis. Going through half the season with only one win is often enough reason for front offices to pull the plug. Now, they are in search of a new person to lead the way in schematics and training for the Bryce Young-led squad. Chris Tabor took over the role for the meantime but Greg Olsen could be gunning for that vacancy soon.
Greg Olsen is reportedly interested in giving the Panthers' head coaching post a shot, per Joseph Person and Richard Deitsch of The Athletic. The former tight end of the same team currently works as a color analyst at Fox. But, the only thing that the former Panthers player would need is a thorough conversation with David Tepper.
The most that Olsen has done, in regards to coaching, was to handle his son's Pop Warner team. Having no experience in that regard could be a major factor in him not being considered for the job. But, there was not much interest from other teams to help alleviate the situation of Bryce Young and his team after Frank Reich got fired.
After getting owned by Will Levis and the Titans, the Panthers' schedule becomes relatively harder. They will be facing teams that are still pushing for postseason contention. Squads like the Jacksonville Jaguars, Atlanta Falcons, and Green Bay Packers among others are still hungry. Focusing on this coaching hunt while they let the team play could be optimal.
