This was Chud's last Panther year regardless.

We suck, he is gone with everyone else.
We're good, he is almost certainly gone to be a HC somewhere.
Timing. is. everything.
Question is this...
If we don't drag our feet with hiring Gettleman, and JR doesn't give Rivera a promise of one more year.
Does Gettleman keep Rivera a week or two ago, if he knows Chud/Norv are gone?
Do we just clean house now, to avoid the potential of Cam have 3 OC's in 3 years?

Truth is that depending on the relationship between Shula and Newton, he might be a good guy to promote. Then make Scott Turner the QB coach. It would keep the continuity and I suspect we would be fine.
Then again I would be fine with many of the guys named as possibilities. What I do know is that Newton is bright enough to flourish in other systems and we have the personnel to be successful. I do hope we continue using a coryell system and make use of tight ends given that really does play to our strengths. And of course emphasize the running game more.
