From PFT:

EFFORT STARTS TO PLACATE PEPPERS?

Posted by Mike Florio on January 19, 2009, 9:59 p.m.

Three days after defensive end Julius Peppers launched a public power play to get out of Carolina, the Panthers might be starting the process of making Julius happy.

Gone is defensive line coach Sal Sunseri.

Coincidentally, Sunseri arrived in 2002, the same year that the Panthers picked Peppers with the second overall selection in the draft.

There’s also chatter that defensive coordinator Mike Trgovac could leave. Word is that his contract has expired, and that he might head to Jacksonville, where he would join Jack Del Rio’s staff.

It remains to be seen whether such changes will persuade Peppers to stick around.

From what I've been reading, it sounds like Sunseri's heart has always been in the college game. He likely returned there voluntarily.

He likely sees the writing on the wall. His supervisor is getting canned, and he has no job security. Good move on his part.
