Sorry if I missed this, but there is a quick mention of this in this article:

Or is it worded like that because he isn't on a hot seat, but rather a lame duck?

Fannation is a bullshit site... It's written by fans, many of whom have no idea what they're talking about. I didn't even open the link when I saw the site...

My bad, I was thinking about bleacher report, but I remember fan nation, I still don't put a lot of credibility into what is posted on there.

John Fox is a top 10 football coach, and his record proves it (compare stats since Fox took over, no brainer). Fox wants top 10 money, and Jerry Richardson is not willing to pay it. The Carolina Panthers will not have Fox after this season unless there is a massive change of heart in how much they are willing to pay Fox. The Panthers are clearly unwilling to pay him, so he is gone after this season, no if's, and's, or but's about it. Maybe they will hire a prominent coach, maybe they will promote from within, but whatever you think about it, remember this: There are no more than 9 coaches (probably less) with the success Fox has over his tenure.

This will become more painful as time goes on if there is not an upgrade at the HC position.

People are throwing that around a lot.... But where is the proof? Right now JR is not going to pay no one that is pretty clear and the reason is just as clear. He will have as little money on the line as possible in case of a lockout.

JR have never been cheap, hell he gave Pep over a mil pr game last season so I find it hard to believe he is to cheap to pay the man who have made the Panthers what is it. Lets get all this CBA shit out of the way and Fox is signed.... If he want to.

The JR is cheap is a myth.

I think you've almost answered your own post: "[I]Right now JR is not going to pay no one that is pretty clear and the reason is just as clear. He will have as little money on the line as possible in case of a lockout.[/I]"

I am not accusing JR of being "cheap". However, nothing has ever been presented to me, with logical reasoning, besides money, as being the reason for not re-signing John Fox. Is there another legit reason?
