Panthers Hire Coordinators

Doing this from my phone, so sorry for the lack of detail.

You win some and lose some, but Carolina won big on their coordinator choices.

They landed recently fired Philly DC Sean McDermott, who runs the same defense Ron Rivera runs here. The pair worked together for five years there.

They also landed Rob Chudzinski, San Diego's assistant head coach/TEs, who was Rivera's choice but not likely Marty Hurney's initially. Apparently, that other candidate.is still in the playoffs.

They also officially announced retaining Ron Meeks, coordinator 09-10, as DBs coach, a coup given secondary play over the last two years, and added former Minnesota ST coach Brian Murphy.

But they lost Tyke Tolbert (WRs), Dave Magazu (OL) to Denver along with targeted coach Wayne Nunnally (DL). They pursued former 49ers coach Mike Singletary (LBs) to Minnesota as well. So they didn't win all their battles, but caught their big names.
