Wow, surprising after Rivera decided not to retain him after 2010. I wonder how Skip feels about that.

Do want. Definitely do want.

If we bring in Hue too I will feel pretty good about things.

I wouldn't imagine there'd be hard feelings. New HCs rarely retain assistant coaches from the previous regime

He probably feels awesome to be offered his old job back. He did just get fired.

Bobby April and any decent LB coach would be icing on the cake... GETTLEMAGIC! (But it won't happen cuz were the panthers)

Man that would be pants-creaming worthy, only problem is that has to be one heck of a dilemma for Skipper. Pride vs. getting back with the boys. I hope he accepts.

Did he get fired along with Fox and all of Fox's staff before Rivera got here or did Rivera let him go?

OC: Hue Jackson
RB: Jim Skipper
WR: Ricky Proehl
LB: Bob Babich
ST: Bobby April

Would be an immensely successful start to the offseason IMO

Big surprise to me too for that very reason.

It's fairly rare for guys at this level to admit they might have made a mistake. By making this call, Rivera is showing that he has the balls to do that.

Source? Haven't seen it confirmed. Seen that he is in the running, maybe even the favorite, alongside Seahawks DL coach Todd Wash and former Bears DC Rod Marinelli, but not that he's actually gotten the job yet.

Person: I think #Panthers will promote several of their own coaches. Shula to OC, Proehl to WRs (from asstWR), Rodgers to ST (From asst/interim ST).

Ugh god pls no to Shula and Rodgers
