(Theory) Coach Cowher to be next Panthers head coach

I have seen the word fired used to describe what JR did to our coaching staff. That is not true. They were allowed to fulfill there contracts and weren't retained. I know that is just semantics but it's very important in my book. And I also think that is was smart to do so as to allow the new coach to bring in coaches that he fills comfortable with.

There is nothing that says that the new coach won't bring back a few of the assistants the he feels are compatible with his style.

You forgot to quote yourself. I think I remember you posting this exact thing in the other Cowher thread.

I wasn't getting any feedback, and wanted to know some opinion's on my theory. I just made a new thread. :)

You have a good point there. Hand picking your entire staff would be extremely appealing for any head coach, however, I do think Carolina holds some cards with Harbaugh as well. We have the rights to his Quarterback whom he declared as the 'best quarterback prospect EVAR!'.

If he goes to Denver it unfortunately may not matter.....

I think the only way he goes to Denver is if the Panthers simply are not interested in aquiring him. Carolina would logically be the best choice for Harbaugh.

I hear ya.. I actually agree with you on the theory. Living in NC, deciding to come back now after 4 years....Oh yeah Fox is done this year...Everyone on the pre game shows joking with Cowher about him coming here..

so you think Cowher isn't going to worry about being GM then?

Do we actually know that Hurney is going to be GM still. Who knows, he may go back to his old salary cap role....

Odds that next Panther coach is a "big" are slim to none in my opinion. I think it will be a coordinator with no previous NFL head coach experience.

I'll be shocked if Cowher ends up in Carolina.

First of all, I doubt we can afford him. If we get into any sort of bidding war for his services, it's over! And with Miami wanting him and willing to spend big bucks, you can count him out.

Secondly, I know many fans love how Carolina stays under the radar from the national media and although some coaches enjoy that, I don't think Cowher is one of them. Cowher likes the spotlight and he isn't going to get it in Charlotte. I see him in Miami... Carolina would be an absolute shock.

As far as Jerry letting go of the entire coaching staff, as a sign that he's interested in Cowher... I don't get it. New head coaches normally bring along their own staff, so it's normal to fire the old head coach along with all of his staff.

I personally feel that coaching is the least of our issues. I feel like we need to overhaul the general manager position or our scouting department. I'll agree that Hurney is good with numbers, but this teams inability to draft a complement to Steve Smith, trade away good draft picks for junk, and just fail to snag talent in late rounds... is the scariest thing in my opinion.

Aside from drafting good runningbacks, Hurney and company have made plenty of horrible decisions on draft days.

I can not imagine Hurney not coming back. Why exactly would they have Hurney conduct the head coaching search only to fire him??

NFL.com is reporting that Miami is out of the picture.

What I meant is that he may be taking a demotion in order to stay with the organization. No one else is going to hire Marty Hurney he's not exactly a genius when it comes to player evaluations. Could Hurney not go back to his salary cap role where he focuses on player contracts (a position he excels at)?.....
