I have a hunch that the job has been offered to Jackson and he is taking his time with it (supposedly has an ego). The Shula interview may be the fallback plan or it could be to pressure Jackson into taking the offer. Who knows.
This should be the most interesting offseason in Panther history (at least we might all agree that it stands to be that).
That is one thing that concerns me about Jackson as OC. He's been known for his hubris. I'd hate to get into a Chud-like situation where he starts calling exotic plays to draw head coaching interest or proves unwilling to adjust if his offense isn't working.
