Per Chandler, looks like they may go outside, and to an unexpected source.

Rip Scherer, Cleveland’s assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach under recently-fired Romeo Crenel, was in Charlotte for an interview Saturday and was expected to land the job.

Scherer, 56, formerly worked with Carolina offensive coordinator Jeff Davidson when Davison was on the Browns’ staff.

McCoy out, Scherer likely in

Pretty clear Davidson suggested this hire.

And before anyone suggests it, no this does not mean we're trading for Derek Anderson :rolleyes:

So, considering the play of Derek Anderson last year, is this a good thing?

I'd have to say it's most certainly better than McToy teaching our QBs how to throw this.

Great players generally make lousy coaches.

Mike Singletary could be a slight exception, but yeah you're right.

So they can hire assistant coaches right now but not fire them. :(

Scherer is said to be an oustanding quarterbacks' tutor and to have been well-liked by Anderson and Quinn.

Add to the fact that Davidson has up and close expierence with him, and wants him, makes me much more comfortable at the spot than it did when McCoy left.

Friend on another board who did a little research on him referred to him as a "QB technician". I'd much prefer that to "throw however you feel like" McCoy.

Wow, that's really good to hear. Hopefully, he can help Delhomme out with his mechanics and footwork to make some accurate throws, and teach the young-uns a thing or two about a thing or two.

Wow, this sounds like quick acting on Davidson's part. He must have heard the news and told Fox he'll "reach-out" to an old working partner real quick. 24 hrs later, new QBs coach.
