Rivera popular at Senior Bowl

Prior speculation was that new OC Mike Shula would pull double duty and handle the QB Coach job himself. Person seems to be reversing field here, mentioning it As an open position on the Panthers staff.

There are good candidates out there should the Panthers choose to backfill (see the other thread)

Why does no one mention George Whitfield???He said he would be working with cam this offseason and what better way than as his official qb coach?? Look at the jobs he's done with luck, Big Ben and cam among others.. Would love him honestly

Consultants don't generally take coaching jobs (and honestly, why should they?)

The best known name out there for QB coaching right now is Jim Zorn. John Ramsdell and Jeremy Bates are also looking for work.

i'm not sure he'd want to stop what he's doing now.

i'm sure he's getting paid a lot more what he's doing now and has a lot more freedom/control over his schedule.

pretty sure weinke wouldn't be all that interested leaving what he's doing now, either.

zorn would be great, though.

What ever the Panthers do, I really hope they get someone dedicated, who can truly help Cam better his mechanics and delivery (as a general, continual purpose and mission), as opposed to some one--who has a name, or from a relationship, that's competent but more window dressing.

His future is too important to the franchise.

Person reporting something that he had no clue was correct or not? I'm shocked!

Person's initial speculation was that Shula would do both, but the articles on the team site advising of Shula's promotion never really lent any credence to that.

I suppose it's possible, but with Person now talking about us having that as an opening on staff, it sounds less likely.

Gabeking asked Person on Twitter if they were hiring a QB coach or letting Shula do both and Person replied "Hiring"

Seems like they could easily look to the pros and college for a QB coach. Or someone from the niners, seahawks, and redskins staff

Jim Zorn's resume' as a QB coach is top notch.

John Ramsdell's got the Rivera connection and did pretty good work with Philip Rivers (though you could argue not so much lately).

Jeremy Bates worked with Jay Cutler, so you could say he's used to guys with big personalities (though Cutler's kind of a problem child; Newton's not in that category).

I'd take any of those guys, with Zorn probably being my top choice.
