#Panthers RB coach John Settle has been fired. http://t.co/NxKDRbLr

from the above link:

Head coach Ron Rivera is staying with the Panthers, but at least one of his assistant coaches is leaving.

Running backs coach John Settle has been relieved of his duties, a league source said Tuesday.

Despite franchise rushing leader DeAngelo Williams getting benched and Jonathan Stewart missing seven games with ankle injuries in 2012, the Panthers finished ninth in the league in rushing with 130.5 yards a game. Of the eight teams ranked higher than Carolina in rushing, six made the playoffs.

More changes on Ron Rivera's staff likely. But I've been told both coordinators -- Rob Chudzinski and Sean McDermott -- are safe.

"Oh yeah, no, what wasn't me, it was John calling those read options. Yes sir, Mr. Richardson, I'll let him know."

    • Im not quite following you. KB had a whole offseason after getting hurt. Then a whole season. And now another half-off-season. I'm not as impatient with his weight as other are being, but I still wish he would create good habits for himself while he's in his prime. He'll have a longer and more productive career that way.
    • I just discovered that I saved the roster as it was immediately post-draft last year on May 1.  We had 39 on Defense, 35 on Offense (74 total) and brought in 7 UDFAs (plus other try outs). It's DRAMATIC to see some of the changes in terms of relative numbers by offense & defense, and at a few position groups - notably OT (huge increase);  Here are the images: Offense:  May 1, 2016   Defense May 1 2016:   Special Teams May 1 2016   Position break down May 1, 2016:   I'll post a side-by-side comparison of the 2016 and 2017 roster by position totals in just a minute (obviously we don't know all the UDFAs for sure yet.)
