Toub Gone, April Next?

Former Ron Rivera associate Dave Toub interviewed in Carolina, but went with his first pro boss instead, signing with Andy Reid and the Chiefs.

Toub came aboard Reid's staff in 2001, two years after Rivera; the pair went to the Bears under Lovie Smith.   Chances are, the longterm stability of Reid (the longest tenured coach in the league before being fired this year, Reid will probably be a Chief for a long time as well) played a part.

So, with that said, the Panthers interviewed Bobby April, the Eagles' ST coach the last few years.   April, a two time Special Teams coach of the year, has 20 years in the league on special teams.  His Eagles' tenure was somewhat rocky (as was with anyone with the Eagles over that time) but is a tremendously respected coach who would likely turn things positive here.

Still no word on position coaches.
