Ron Meeks: Fired

DBs coach Ron Meeks was fired today, per the Charlotte Observer.

Meeks, formerly the DC in Carolina in 2009-2010, and in Indianapolis 2002-2008, was retained as DBs coach last year by Ron Rivera, in what was considered a savvy move.

However, defensive back struggles as I documented here, and exascerbated by the final Saints game, apparently made changes necessary. Meeks' unit, the one least changed by offseason moves, or injury - or really, even coaching since they retained him - was at times as bad as any part of the defense.

It's uncertain if any other moves are coming - while I'm not a fan of letting coaches go in year one, I wouldn't be totally against ST coach Brian Murphy going if it meant Dave Toub coming on - or if Sean McDermott is safe himself.
